unusual waltz

video


We visited a historic district, Old Washington, near Maysville, Kentucky yesterday. It's right outside the town where Sarah lives. We looked around at an old log house and then sat under the shade of gigantic walnut trees talking about this and that. The subject of dancing came up and since nobody was around but us, Emily gave us a brief demonstration of ballet moves she remembers. Then Sarah began asking her to demonstrate other dance styles, like jazz, lyrical, salsa, jive, and then I suggested waltz. She asked Erin to be her partner. We caught this video on my iPhone.

Emily said that was the traditional waltz, and not nearly as energetic as the Vietnamese Waltz.  I thought for a moment and suggested she might have been referring to the Viennese Waltz.  J  We all had a smile.
