Tulidil Waltz

The Tulidil Waltz is a Long-Steps original. It was choreographed by Lindsey and Ian in January 2019 the sequence is an entry level dance with the specific intention of helping teach Modern Waltz to students with no previous waltz experience. The Tulidil is put together from bronze level waltz figures only; it has no promenading figures, and no changes in hold. In this way the sequence introduces dancers to the basic figures, rhythms, leads, follows, and the idea of body shaping.
