Silver Waltz Sequence Dance

The Silver Waltz is a modern sequence dance. The dance script was composed by Alf and Peggy Hoskings in 1980. It is a 16 bar dance (see paragraph numbers) in the usual 3/4 waltz time and should be danced to a 1-2-3 rhythm to music at a tempo of 29 beats per minute. We commence the dance in normal ballroom hold with the man facing and the lady backing diagonal to wall. Only the man’s steps are described here, with the Lady dancing as a counterpart, unless otherwise stated – in which case, the lady’s steps are in italics.

Technique Tips: The man lowers (bends his legs) slightly and uses “heel leads” to step forward; backward steps are drawn with his toe (again, lowering himself) and falling back onto his heel. Whenever the man or lady bring their feet together in a continuing movement, they should rise up onto their toes.
