Waltz Dance Lessons

Before booking your Waltz Dance Lessons imagine colorful flowing ball gowns! Tails! Weddings! Beautiful music! Strong melodies! Waltz is a ballroom dance in 3/4 time with strong accent on the first beat and a basic pattern of step-step-close. Born in the suburbs of Vienna and in the alpine region of Austria. As early as the seventeenth century, waltzes were played in the ballrooms of the Hapsburg court. The weller, or turning dances, were danced by peasants in Austria and Bavaria even before that time. Many of the familiar waltz tunes can be traced back to simple peasant yodeling melodies. During the middle of the eighteenth century, the allemande form of the waltz was very popular in France.

Originally danced as one of the figures in the contredanse, with arms intertwining at shoulder level, it soon became an independent dance and the close-hold was introduced. By the end of the eighteenth century, this old Austrian peasant dance had been accepted by high society, and three-quarter rhythm was here to stay.
