When Ragtime music evolved into Swing through the 1920's, new dances such as the Charleston, the Shimmy, and the Black Bottom became popular.
These dances became absorbed into a faster version of Foxtrot after a visit by Paul Whiteman's band to the UK in 1923, becoming known as the Quickstep.
Currently it is danced at a tempo of approximately 200 beats per minute. It retains the walks, runs, chasses and turns, of the original Foxtrot, with some other fast figures such as locks, hops, and skips added. Quickstep is a wonderful dance to challenge yourself and your heart beat. Happy Quick stepin!

Arthur Murray Studio in Scottsdale is an amazing place to learn to dance. The instructors are charismatic individuals and excellent teachers (and dancers) who love to teach and also who care about their students. I have been dancing here for almost 5 months and in that short period of time, I have learned a great deal. I am glad that I chose Arthur Murray studio in Scottsdale as the place to dance. The people (both the teachers and students) make this studio a unique and a great place to learn to dance whether you want to learn for social reasons, or if you want to compete.
