Improving Your Waltz Rise and Fall

Waltz Rise and Fall

Much of the beauty of Waltz is in the rise and fall action as the dance sweeps through a pendulum swing on every bar of music.

Being a teacher involved in some 3,700 group classes over the past decade, I’ve seen countless people misunderstand the timing and action of the rise and fall in Waltz.

In this short video, the proper technique is described in more detail to help dancers improve the look of their Waltz.

It covers the timing of the action, and invites you to rethink the flow of the rise and fall to create more harmony within the partnership. Enjoy!

Who is this course suited for?

  • You have some experience with the Slow Waltz
  • You are familiar with the Rise and Fall action in Waltz

This short video covers the timing of the Waltz rise and fall action, and invites you to rethink the flow of the rise and fall to create more harmony within the partnership. Enjoy!

You can learn this dance with any shoes, or even in stocking feet if you like. Shoes will give you more stability. Avoid shoes with crepe-style soft rubber soles, as those will stick to the floor, impeding your movement.
Give yourself enough space to perform the Waltz Box Step to practice the technique described in this video.
Although you'll need a partner to dance the Waltz, you don't need one to learn the dance through this video program.
