Get your feet moving and master some steps so you’ll be ready for any social occasion. At Arthur Murray Dance Centers, you can master dance steps for any event, including specialty dances like a romantic foxy slow dance, a sexy Argentine tango, or a playful nightclub two-step.
Originally, the tango was created in the West Indies, where only the lowest classes danced this style. The dance was then re-developed over the last century in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital city. This partner dance features interpretive moves that allow the dancers to showcase their deep connection between each other, so choosing an appropriate piece of music and environment is key.
Foxy Slow Dance
The Foxy is a combination of a Foxtrot and a Waltz. So many modern slow songs don’t fit one specific type of dance style that combining Foxtrot patterns and Waltz timing creates a beautiful hybrid for modern music. It’s ideal for couples who want to get out on the dance floor right away, and it is used not only for special occasions but in nightclubs and lounges too.
This dance is a fun and playful dance that can be used with many pop and country songs. Traditionally, it’s used with ballads as a way to make the average slow dance more interesting. Many couples now use this type of dance step as part of their first dance for something different.
