Quickstep Lessons

Elegant, smooth and glamorous, Quickstep dancers are energetic while it should appear that the feet of the dancers barely touch the ground. Upper body posture must be straight and strong throughout each movement. The Quickstep usually follows a 4/4 time pattern. The basic feel of the Quickstep is slow-quick-quick, slow-quick-quick, with "slow" taking beats one and two, and "quick-quick" taking beats three and four. Most of the "slow" steps are taken on the heel, while most "quick" steps are taken on the balls of the feet.
