Song: At This Moment

Although the Waltz has been around in various forms for centuries it appeared, as we know it today, around 1910. It became a slower alternative to the Viennese Waltz which had been popular since the Regency period.It is often referred to as a gliding dance. This is due to the slight hesitation created on step two of the three step basic.The Waltz is danced in 3 / 4 time which means three beats in a bar of music. It would be counted 1, 2, 3. You would also use rise and fall to give the appearance of the gliding and hesitating/hovering.Although a slow dance, you have to use a lot of strength and balance to keep it under control.
