What is the meaning of the waltz?
Author: Eric Jimenez
The Quinceañera waltz is one of the most endearing traditions for a Quinceanera. It is a chance for the quinceanera to express to her guests, who are some of the most influential people in her life.Whether the quinceanera is dancing the waltz surrounded by her court of honor, her father for the father-daughter dance, or one of her parental figures, such as her uncle or an older cousin.
The waltz is a coming-of-age tradition that showcases the refinement and grace girls are now expected to display in their everyday life as a young woman. Traditionally in Mexico, a young girl could not dance in public, aside from school functions or family parties, and the waltz during the Quince party was seen as the first time she could publicly dance in front of her friends!
The quinceanera can choose typical and renowned waltzes, or you can add a modern twist by dancing to a slow and moving contemporary song. It is her decision.
