The foxtrot is a fast dance of the early 20th century consisting of four basic steps. The dance was extremely popular in the United States well into the 1950s. Its dancers are called trotters (male) and foxes (female), an analogy to fox hunting performed on horseback.

Foxtrot is also used as a code name for the letter F in military codes, such as the NATO Phonetic Alphabet.[1]

FoxTrot is also a syndicated American comic strip created by Bill Amend about Roger Fox, his wife, and their three children ages 10, 14, and 16 - Jason, Paige, and Peter. Quincy is Jason's pet iguana.
