With professional ballroom dance classes, Dancing City is your source for ballroom Waltz dance lessons in Houston.
A classic type of ballroom dance is the Waltz, which is a folk dance performed in 3/4 time, primarily in a closed position. The Waltz first became popular in Vienna during the end of the 18th century, quickly spreading around Europe in the following years. Most other ballroom and folk dances have developed around the Waltz's closed position; including the "Hesitation Waltz", performed with fast music and dramatic hesitations.
Many people find that learning to waltz is one of the hallmarks of refinement. Beginning in the United States towards the end of the 19th century, families with high social standing would ensure that their children learned how to waltz before they were properly introduced to their counterparts; in some social circles, this practice continues today. Many formal events feature the Waltz in Houston, and most fine preparatory schools offer some type of instruction in the Waltz to their students as they prepare them to enter society. As difficult as the dance may seem, with practice ballroom dance classes, it is actually not overly-complicated.
