This is really cool. I started doing a research paper for my History of Dance class and it was just fun. I did a paper on the Waltz. I never knew it had such an interesting history before. When it first appeared in ballrooms it was scandalous. Many different variations of the waltz were created, such as the Viennese Waltz and the American Waltz. Others have since died out, like the hesitation waltz, which is now incorporated into the American Waltz.
