Making Your Own Waltz Routine

One of the best ways to practice your new dance skills is to combine the variations you have learned in patterns that you create yourself. The more you practice, the more interesting your dancing will become. Here are some routines we have come up with to begin practicing to the Waltz. See what you can come up with!

If you own the Ballroom for Beginners CD or Cassette, turn it to track 1,2, or 3 to practice the following routines. Track #1 is the slowest of the three Waltzes, with track #3 being the fastest. (Click here to find information on the Ballroom Dance Kit.)
