The Waltz

The waltz is a dance in 3/4 time that was very popular in Vienna, Austria in the 19th century. But the roots of the waltz go back to the German Dance of Mozart’s day. After the waltz became popular on the dance floor, it moved onto the concert stage, the ballet stage and the opera stage.
