Waltz is a smooth progressive dance characterised by long, flowing movements, continuous turns, and rise & fall.
Graceful and elegant, Waltz dancers glide around the floor almost effortlessly. At 28-30 measures per minute, the tempo
is slow at best, but the expressive quality of the music often invites very powerful and dynamic movement from
dancers. It is danced exclusively in the closed position, unlike its American Style counterpart.
