Dance instruction Greenville SCCreated in 1912 by Harry Fox, the Fox Trot was the first dance that permitted people to hold each other closer than arm’s length. If you think the term ‘dirty dancing’ was a product of the 80s, think again. The Fox Trot was at first to be tagged ‘indecent behavior’. Today it’s still the most popular of all social dances. Some people refer to the Fox Trot as the ‘Slow Dance’ or the ‘Two-Step’, or a ‘Conversational Dance’ because of its closeness and conversation ability at the same time. The Fox Trot is good for developing ‘smoothness’ and ‘ease of movement’.
