Slow Waltz

The Slow Waltz is a dance in 3/4 time and is characterized by its graceful rise and fall motion. It is danced primarily in closed position to the music of the same name. At music4dance, we're be consistently referring to this dance as the Slow Waltz to distinguish it from the Viennese Waltz and other dances in the Waltz family, but in the context of ballroom dancing when the term Waltz is used by itself, this is generally the dance that is being referenced.

The Slow Waltz is generally danced first in both the American Smooth and International Standard dance competitions.
