    1. Don't know about the foxtrot, but I've always liked this song.

  2. I can't tell you how many times my little professional ballroom dancer feet immediately start to choreograph that song. I can visualize sitting on the floor with my dance partner, both of us equipped with paper and pencil, counting off the measures, and plugging in the steps.

    Lovely!

    1. Anything beyond a box step and I'm two left feet. I started to learn West Coast Swing a while back, but that's a story for another time...

  3. Don't knock the box step. It's the basic step for fox trot, waltz, and samba.

    I can remember a few students that were so bad, I'd have to draw a box on the dang floor with chalk. I kid you not!!! They were usually the same ones who couldn't hear the boom shush shush of a waltz. I'd have them put their hands on top of speakers so they could feel it.

    West Coast swing is not easy so don't be hard on yourself. The count is a bit weird at first. The triple step (1&2 3&4) is not exactly evenly spaced. In other words the &2 are closer together than the 1 &. It's sort of like playing triplets on the drums.
