What is the Waltz?

Waltz takes its name from the German word "walzen," meaning to roll, turn, or glide. It is a ballroom dance done in 3/4 time. Colorful flowing ball gowns (or short skirts), tails (or blue jeans), beautiful Strauss music (or Lyle Lovett). Whatever is your fancy - come give it a whirl! CAUTION: The Waltz was criticized on moral grounds by those opposed to its close hold and rapid turning movements.
