Tutorial: Learn the Quickstep with Natalie Lowe

Length: 0:06:24

Quickstep was developed in the twenties in New York and was first danced by Caribbean and African dancers. Its origins are in a combination of a slow Foxtrot and the Charleston, a dance which was one of the precursors to what today is called swing dancing.The dance was standardized in 1927 and gradually evolved into a very dynamic one with a lot of movement on the dance floor, with many advanced patterns including hops, runs, quick steps with a lot of momentum, and rotation.
