Most historians agree that the Turkey Trot was invented in San Francisco around 1909, but some have reported that it came from Central America in the 1860’s (unlikely).
It has been said that dancers John Jarrott and Louise Gruenning introduced this dance as well as the Grizzly Bear at Ray Jones Cafe’ in Chicago, IL. around 1909. The name Turkey Trot relating to dancing goes back further to 1895 in the song “Pas Ma La” where the dancer is urged to got to the World’s Fair and do the Turkey Trot dance, so its probably a folk dance that became a Ragtime Dance later.
