Foxtrot was the most popular fast dance from the late teens through to 1940’s. The waltz and tango were not as popular as the foxtrot, and the foxtrot could be danced to the lindy hop records, as well.
“Rock Around the Clock” is technically the biggest-selling “Foxtrot” of all time, which sold more than 25 million copies. The foxtrot has been split into the slow (Foxtrot) and quick (Quickstep) versions.
Foxtrot is also called Slowfox in the context of International Standard category of ballroom dances.
