The waltz (from German: "Walzer") is a smooth dance performed primarily in closed position.

Describing life in Vienna (dated at either 1776 or 1786[5]), Don Curzio wrote, "The people were dancing mad [...] The ladies of Vienna are particularly celebrated for their grace and movements of waltzing of which they never tire."

The waltz became fashionable in Vienna around the 1780s, spreading to many other countries in the years to follow. It became fashionable in Britain during the Regency period, having been made respectable by the endorsement of Dorothea Lieven, wife of the Russian ambassador.

Influential dance master and author of instruction manuals, Thomas Wilson published A Description of the Correct Method of Waltzing in 1816.[14]

Almack's, the most exclusive club in London, permitted the waltz though the entry in the Oxford English Dictionary shows that it was considered "riotous and indecent" as late as 1825. The waltz, and especially its closed position, became the example for the creation of many other ballroom dances. Subsequently, new types of waltz have developed, including many folk and several ballroom dances.

Waltz based on Russian songs: By Muromsk track

( Russian folk song )

By Muromsk track
There were three pine.
Said goodbye to me cute
Until next spring .

He swore
With one to be with me .
On the far on the sidelines
I did not forget .

The next morning he left,
Cute sped away .
Heart left me
Longing only , but sadness .

That night I dreamed
Horrible nightmare
What my dear married
He broke his oath .

And I dream of laughing
In broad daylight .
Yes unless it can
That sweet forgotten me?

But my dream come true soon .
And in early spring
My dear returned
With his beautiful wife .

I stood at the gate ,
When he passed ,
Me in the crowd
He found a glance .

Seeing my tears ,
He lowered his eyes .
And I realized that forever
My heart destroyed .

By Muromsk track
There were three pine.
Said goodbye to me cute
Until next spring .
