Waltz

We offer balloom dance, swing dance and Latin dance classes at West Roxbury School of Dance: click here for our current dance classes.

Characterized by its rolling style and romantic flavor, the waltz first became fashionable in Vienna around the 1780s, spreading to many other countries in the years to follow. The waltz, and especially its closed dance position, became the example for the creation of many other ballroom dances. Subsequently, new types of waltz have developed, including many folk and several ballroom dances, as well as country waltz.

waltz music, moon riverWaltz Music

Contemporary waltz music is romantic and elegant; it's a perennial favorite among ballroom dancers who relish the rise and fall movements of the waltz which create a gentle (or dramatic) rolling swoop around the dance floor.

“Moon River” is a classic example of the waltz rhythm, as are the R'n'B classics “If You Don't Know Me By Now” and Aretha's “Natural Woman”.
