English version of the Fast Fox Trot, which has quick hopping steps set in with the smoother gliding figures. It is very popular in Europe as a competition dance. It ranks among the “Big Five,” the other four are the Slow Fox Trot, the Waltz, the Tango and the Viennese Waltz. This dance is quite a lot of fun and very difficult.
