The Tuxedo is an easy Two-Step sequence dance described by Morrie Morrison in 1955.
It's reminiscent of (but easier than) the Aero Two-Step from 1910.
Closed position throughout.
Part I - Slow and Quick Chassés Along LOD (4 bars): Side (1), close (2), side (3), close (4) along LOD, then side (5), close (and), side (6), close (and), side (7), and pause, pointing free foot against LOD (8).
Part II - Slow and Quick Chassés Against LOD (4 bars): Repeat opposite, against LOD (1, 2, 3, 4, 5-and-6-and-7, 8).
Parts III & IV - Two-Step (4 bars): Four full turns of two-step (1-and-2, 3-and-4, 5-and-6, 7-and-8 / 1-and-2, 3-and-4, 5-and-6, 7-and-8).
Repeat from the beginning.
