The Waltz is perhaps the quintessential ballroom dance.
Starting in southern Germany in the seventeenth century, it had a resurgence beginning in the early twentieth century when the technique was changed slightly to create the Waltz we know today.
A popular "First Dance" at many weddings, the Waltz is graceful and elegant.
The basic Waltz steps are the foundation patterns used in most ballroom dances. On top of simple patterns, styling techniques like rise & fall, swaying movements, and continuous turns create the impression of beautiful sweeping flow and ease.
