The Foxtrot was introduced in New York and it is first associated with Harry Fox. Harry, while playing at the Belvedere Theatre, introduced the use of a "slow step" dance composed of walking and side steps. The Foxtrot dance became very popular in 1912, and even today it is loved for its elegant and sophisticated moves characterized by continuous and long movements around the dance floor. The American style of dance takes a number of forms that include the Harry Fox version with its simple combination of walks and chases. The dance is very popular today among the wedding couples choosing it for a first dance. It is also a common dance during social events.
