It's the Quickstep. You've got to be smooth!
The English version of the Fast Foxtrot, which was quick hopping steps set in the smoother gliding figures. It is very popular in Europe as a competition dance. It ranks among the "big five", the other four being the Slow Foxtrot, the Waltz, the Tango, and the Viennese Waltz. It has a slight syncopation that is derived from the dances like the Charleston. Around 1924 it had various names like the Quick Time Foxtrot or the Quick foxtrot. It got the modern name of Quickstep around 1927.
