Thankfully the "Texas Two Step" is the term commonly used today, as having another version of the Foxtrot would lend itself to even more confusion.
Dancing the foxtrot progressive step means the lead needs to cover ground quickly.
That all changed, though, in the late 1910's, when a dance called the "Collegiate Foxtrot" began to catch on.
Dancing the foxtrot has been one of the favorite pastimes of ballroom dancers from amateurs to competitive professionals for decades.
The foxtrot has gone all the way from the vaudeville stage to prime time TV on shows like Dancing with the Stars.
