Black Hawk Waltz


Black Hawk Waltz




Black Hawk Waltz is a classic round (or couple) dance. The tune was composed by Mary Walsh in 1877. Here is a link to  an illustration of the sheet music cover, and instructions are available on the Lloyd Shaw Foundation website.

The Black Hawk Waltz was one of the dances included by Lloyd Shaw in his Round Dance Book published in 1947. Round dances are a common part of today's modern square dance clubs, though this project will focus more on squares than on these couple dances.
