Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Slow waltz is the term applied to waltz in countries where Viennese Waltz is the form of waltz commonly practiced. Some confusion occurs when dancers come from these countries to places like the United States where "waltz" events and invitations are not what they might expect.Slow Waltz was also the name of a dance in the International Standard dance category of ballroom dances. Now it is officially called simply "Waltz," but "Slow Waltz" is still in the informal use, to distinguish from other types of waltzes.There are several references to a sliding or gliding dance, - a waltz, from the 16th century including the representations of the printer H.S. Beheim. The French philosopher Montaigne wrote of a dance he saw in 1580 in Augsburg, where the dancers held each other so closely that their faces touched. Kunz Haas, of approximately the same period wrote that, "Now they are dancing the godless, Weller or Spinner."show more
