Time Signature: 4/4 timing
Tempo: 128-136 BPM for American and 112-120 BPM for International.
Music Style: 40’s style Singer Standard/Big Band type with a little swing to it.
Character: Long, smooth strides with gentle rise and fall to it that travel around the ballroom. Elements of contra-body movement, sway and continuity are also important. Think a’la Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire; suave and smooth!
Where you can use it: Wherever Big Band/Singer Standard music is played. Sometimes these types of bands are hired for weddings, but you can always find Foxtrots being played at a ballroom.
