WALTZ DANCE CLASSES

The elegant sweeping movement of the Waltz gives dancers a chance to practice balance and to move lightly with ease.

History:

Considered the mother of present day dances, the Waltz began in southern Germany in the seventeenth century. The popularity of the Waltz grew with the music of Johann Strauss and eventually blossomed in the 20th century. It is the basis for many dances and is popular today all over the world.

Music:

The Waltz is written in 3/4 time and has a slow to medium tempo with the musical accent occurring on the first beat of each measure. The basic count for the Waltz is 1, 2, 3. Faster tempo Waltz is called Viennese Waltz.

Waltz songs and artists include:

Moon River – Andy Williams
Open Arms – Journey
Are You Lonesome Tonight? – Elvis Presley
Take it to the Limit – Eagles
