Alfredo de Anhelis.

At the end of the 19th century, Buenos Aires was filled with immigrants and immigrants from Europe and Africa, many of whom were single and looking for friends among the new unfamiliar environment. Naturally, these unfortunate people have joined the ranks of the port (the letters. Port people - Argentine immigrants), in search of drinks that would drown sorrows, unstable relationships, and all the entertainment that can distract from depression. Different cultures have mixed and brought a new style of music that emerged from African drums, Indian rhythms, Latin trends and popular in the pampas (plains) Argentine music.

As you might guess, this new music was called tango. Historians claim that the name comes from the sound of the tambourine African heard as "tan-go", or from the Latin tangere (touch). The dance began as a pantomime relationship between a girl of easy virtue and a pimp. Improvisation was filled with emotional message and seductive circular gestures. This sexy choreography emphasized the melancholic sounds of the bandoneon, a German tool, very similar to an accordion.

Viennese Waltz

The era of the minuet change of eras Waltz. With the advent of the French Revolution, dance a minuet as exudes the essence of the first decades, died of natural causes. English folk dance, expressing the complacency of the bourgeoisie felt much better. Young people whose preferences find expression in new forms, experienced the revolutionary events of the 80s and 90s of the 18th century. Now they have seen the dance can reveal deep emotions, to meet the needs of body and soul, and causing more vital and dynamic expression than allowed sensible and decent rules of the old masters of dance. Overflow feelings and desire to expand horizons beyond the traditional understanding of the canons of the French rationalism, also were among the factors romantic movement in art in Europe. This new direction is clearly expressed in the waltz, dance, crowded spirit of Dionysus.

Waltz started as a revolving dance couples. He was particularly popular in southern Germany and Austria, where he was known under different names, such as Dreher (dance turners), Ländler (country dance) and Deutscher (German dance). More than any other dance that represents some of the abstract values ​​of a new era, the ideas of freedom, personality, passion and expression. This may explain its rapid breakthrough in the light of international popularity. Its popularity peaked in 1787, when it was presented on the operatic stage. Vienna to become the city of the waltz, for he surpassed all the rest in the wilderness. Viennese Waltz erased national borders, and in 1804 the French admitted in his passionate love of the light, the moving dance. "Waltz, the next - Waltz" has become a common appeal in the ballroom, for the French, that they could not get enough of the dance.


"The basis of the moving dance - move or move smoothly around the room, covering as much of the dance floor. The couple must merge two people - one to move, glide smoothly and vigorously on the dance floor, if they were dancing in the water, they should not have awaken a single wave. Imagine a room filled with thick whipped cream. The purpose of the dancers - move vigorously gliding through cream, clean way, without touching the rest of the whipped cream around. " This is one of the best definitions that can be found on the foxtrot, adapted from the book "The ABCs of ballroom dancing."

It is believed that the star of vaudeville named Harry Fox came up with what we now call the foxtrot. In the summer of 1914 Harry and his troupe of "American Beauties" to put a dance piece in the New York theater. As part of his game, he took a few steps lynx under the provocative music and people called this dance "Steps Fox" - Fox`s trot.

During provocative jazz rhythms, which began in 1910, was born completely new phase of ballroom dancing. Partners danced close together, absorbed in music, and finding this new exciting jazz tunes and exciting. Banihag, turkitrot and kaslvolk - these are just a few of the many buffonadskih and ridiculous dance that quickly captured the minds of the public.

Foxtrot not long remain "steps Fox," he was reborn in a sleek, elegant dance. When we observe the pair, moving gracefully across the floor, or anyone, and would never think of ridiculous music. When the British dance teachers brought the American sliding ballroom dance in England, they scraped all the buffoonery, jumps and kicks, leading to a smoother version that has survived to the present day. There are variations foxtrot - Quickstep, and even such dances as the Lindy (swing) and Hustle.


Invented during World War II in the suburbs of New York, he was inspired by Caribbean and African dancers. In the end, he made his debut on the stage of American music-hall and immediately became popular on the dance floor.

Foxtrot and quickstep come from the same dance. In the twenties many bands played the Slow Foxtrot too fast, and eventually, it turned into two different dances. The pace is slow foxtrot has become even slower and Quickstep became the fast version of the foxtrot.

In 1925 began a feverish passion for Charleston, which greatly influenced the development of Quickstep. The British identified Quickstep from the original Charleston as a progressive dance without pinatelnyh movements and mixed with fast foxtrot. They called this dance "Quick Foxtrot and Charleston".

In the championship of the "Star" in 1927, an English couple Frank Ford and Molly Spain played a fast version of Foxtrot and Charleston without the characteristic Charleston knee movements, and made it a dance for two instead of one.

There was a lot of controversy, why the dance has become so popular in Britain. It was believed that the Quickstep was a British method warm indoors in winter.
