Waltz is a really wonderful dance and learning it is not as hard as most people think. It's elegant and nearly universal, perfect for a wedding dance, or almost any social occasion.

Waltz dates back to the late 17th century Europe, but has never been out of fashion and clearly stood the test of time. It should probably be one of the first ballroom dances you learn.

Waltz is a smooth and graceful dance with long, flowing movements, characterized by its rise & fall motion. It has a unique 3/4 timing, based on three steps - step forward or backward, a step to the side, and then a step to close the feet together. It has a simple and rhythmic pattern which blends with the music.

To see how waltz dancers glide across the floor like they are walking on clouds, take a look at this video.
