A second popular dance rhythm used in the foxtrot is a slow, quick, quick four-count rhythmic step pattern, which is typically used in a box step, thus it is called box rhythm. The 4/4 time foxtrot music is the type of music played most frequently during an evening of ballroom social dancing. Primarily, the foxtrot is danced in a closed position, which was scandalous at one time because of the leader’s right hand touching the follower’s back. However, the popularity of the foxtrot and its engaging music has helped it to become a favourite smooth dance style for dancers of all ages.
On the other hand, today's Quickstep, with its myraid syncopated steps, hops, skips and spins, takes the couple speeding around the floor in a mixture of classic gliding movements, Charleston kicks and hops. It has become a dynamic dance of seemingly endless possibilities.
