Time Signature: 3/4 timing
Tempo: Between 84-96 BPM for American and 84-90 BPM for International.
Music Style: Any music which uses 3/4 timing. The music tends to be smoother and softer styles.
Character: Long, smooth strides around the ballroom floor incorporating much more rise & fall than in other dances. Elements of contra-body movement, sway and continuity are also important. It is a very graceful, beautiful and elegant dance.
Where you can use it: Only where you find a 3/4 timing song being played. Even modern wedding songs are no longer Waltzes. The best place to find a Waltz is at a ballroom!
