1. FORWARD WALK
STEP DEMO
The Forward Walk is the basic step for Foxtrot. Try to keep it as natural as possible; it's really just like taking a walk.
DO IT BY YOURSELF
Video 1: Man's Foot Positions.
Video 2: Lady's Foot Positions.
DO IT WITH MUSIC
Count: SSQQ
DO IT WITH A PARTNER
Video 1: Avoid stepping on your partner by 'tracking' your legs and feet.
Video 2: Lead and Follow by keeping your weight forward towards each other.
DO IT ON THE FLOOR
Forward Walk - Travelling Step
The forward walk is the only step you really need in Foxtrot to get yourself around the room. The man should face the direction he wants to travel and simply repeat the step over and over.
Obviously if you are going to go around a room you need to curve the step slightly over time. Keep you curve moderate and you shouldn't have any problems.
Suggested Combination: Just point and go!
DO IT WITH STYLE
Video 1: Soften your knees to make the step feel smooth and rhythmical.
