Streetswings Dance History Archives: Waltz Timeline
The Boston WALTZ  (Waltz Dance Timeline page)
      This Waltz Dance "Timeline" dates are approximate and not verified dates, just the earliest dates I have found on the listed dance subjects at the moment (these dates are not: "when was or became popular dates," unless stated.) Check actual dance page for more up-to-date time lines/dates. This page is constantly being updated. Other events in time are included to give an "idea of the Timeline around the Waltz dance's creation, or describe something that affected Waltz dancing, these are in light yellow.

    Note: CE stands for "Common Era." It is a relatively new term that is experiencing some increased usage and is eventually expected to replace AD. BCE stands for "Before the common era." It is eventually expected to replace BC. (However, until it becomes widely used and understood, I am generally using the old way.)
