Quick Start

These quickstep lessons presume you have already done the foxtrot lessons.

Quickstep Complete Beginner

Once you are enjoying this and want to learn more you could learn waltz complete beginners as well. Presuming you previously learnt foxtrot, this gives you a set of different ballroom dances to enjoy socially.

If you want to learn more quickstep you can simply work through the videos in the order shown below.

Beginner Slow Slow Quick Quick

Quickstep Beginner SSQQ

Slow slow quick quick is a repeated pattern that is popular socially. This pattern is the same as the one that was learnt in foxtrot and the quickstep lesson is designed to be done after the similarly-named foxtrot lesson. A third part is often added to the pattern in quickstep: I do not recommend the extended sequence of three moves to beginners as I think the significant extra difficulty is not worth it.

Beginner Solo Practice

Quickstep Beginner Leader Solo Practice

A beginner leader solo practice lesson is available for quickstep.

Quickstep Improver Leader and Follower Slow Zig Zag

Many consider slow steps to be an important building block of quickstep and part of its history. Others think it is wrong. I like it as a variation and am a strong advocate for considering it to be part of the dance we call quickstep.
