I always loved the elegance and the flow of the waltz.
The first time I ever danced the waltz was at one of my 
cousins weddings. My very sweet Uncle Ed that I always
adored approached me, grabbed my hand and very quickly
 shuffled me to the dance floor and said, "Waltz with me"
I said, " I don't know how!" He said, "You will in a minute.
Let's go." He was right. It took only a minute and we
 were soon gliding around the entire dance floor. He was
so beautiful on his feet. I thank you Uncle Ed and miss you.
This is when I fell in love with The Waltz

Walt by The Light of The Moon

Waltz is a smooth progressive dance characterized by long, flowing movements, continuous turns, and rise & fall. Graceful and elegant, Waltz dancers glide around the floor almost effortlessly. The American style is punctuated with lavish open movements, underarm turns, and solo spins. 
The Waltz is the oldest of the ballroom dances dating from the middle of the Eighteenth Century. The German "Lander", a folk dance, is supposed to be the forerunner of the Waltz.
It is not known exactly when The Waltz was introduced to the United States. It was probably brought to New York and Philadelphia at about the same time, and by the middle of the Nineteenth Century was firmly established in United States society.
It came as a surprise to learn that the waltz was once considered to be a forbidden dance. It once held this reputation because partners were permitted to make contact. Such contact had never before been seen in the dance halls of Vienna.
