History of Waltz

Waltz was once known as a dance of rebellion, embraced by teens and frowned upon by parents. Its name comes from walzen— “to turn” in German. By the late 1700s, the dance craze was popular among young people from the wealthy middle classes who were discarding the aristocratic customs of their elders. Conservative critics considered it to be too tactile. Until then, dancers might, at the very most, hold hands while performing choreography. The dance style spread through Europe and eventually made it to the United States following the Civil war. While the style faded in the 20th century, it still proves to be a tasteful and stylish dance for formal events today.
