Dance Quickstep

Originally a March, which became popular around 1850, today's ballroom Quickstep was mixed with the Charleston and originally known as the Fast Foxtrot.
 
It then came to be merged with other dances, including One Step, The March and the Black Bottom, to make the Quickstep as we now know it.  The first version of today's ballroom Quickstep was probably performed by Frank Ford and Molly Spain in 1927.
 
The Quickstep should be dynamic and fun!
