Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\Tur"key-trot`\, n.
An eccentric ragtime dance, danced with the feet well apart
and with a characteristic rise on the ball of the foot,
followed by a drop upon the heel. The original form, owning
to the positions assumed by the dancers, is offensively
suggestive. Similar dances are the

{bunny hug} and

{grizzly bear}, so called in allusion to the movements and
   the positions assumed by the partners in dancing.
