Mayfair Quickstep, adapted for smaller spaces

Mayfair Quickstep online video thumbnail

Looking to learn the Mayfair Quickstep but don’t have the space, or want to practice at home? Check out our sequence for small spaces series of videos.

Sequence dancing is where you repeat the same 16 or 32 bar routine throughout a song, dancing around the room, and in sync with everyone else.

Now that’s great when you have the space. What we’re going to show you today is how to practice the basic movements in your front room.

The Dance – Mayfair Quickstep

The Mayfair Quickstep doesn’t bear much resemblance to the Ballroom Quickstep, although it does have elements of Polka.

We’re going to break it down into easy to master chunks, and then bring it together to the full routine throughout the lesson.

To convert this Mayfair Quickstep into the full version you would perform the ‘turn around’ as a three step turn down the room. The final chasses round each other would overturn to end facing down the room, side by side. Then the close and taps would be taking as walk and points down the room.

The Music

A popular song used for the Mayfair Quickstep is Dance Above The Rainbow from Michael Flatley’s ‘Feet of Flames’. However for licensing reasons we have chosen to use Out The Back by Biddy Sullivan:
