The Waltz comes from Bavarian folk dances almost 400 years ago, but it was not introduced into the society until 1812, where it started to make its appearance in English ballrooms. In early 1840, the dance style became popular in the United States, even surviving the “ragtime revolution” in 1910.
The Waltz is a progressive dance with figures designed for both larger and average dance floor. The use of sway highlights the smooth, lilting style of the Waltz. Since it is a very traditional style of dance, the Waltz makes one feel like a princess or a prince in the ball.
