The Waltz


The Waltz is an Alpine Dance. It is a smoothly turning travelling couple dance.
The Zwiefache and the Hambo (Deutscher Dreher, Dreischritt Dreher) are the closest relatives of the Waltz.
The Schottische, Snoa, and Polka are also very similar.
The word "walzen" means to roll, i.e. to travel while turning perfectly smoothly.



In Toronto there is:

Simon's Mostly Waltz (some Fridays)

Blue Danube Sunday Tea Dance (every Sunday 5-9, Waltzes and more)

Alpine Dancing

An excellent opportunity to dance the traditional waltz, along with other traditional dances, are Fiddle Jamborees.
