Time stands still as he wraps her in his arms and leads her in a waltz. One, two, three, four One, two, three, four He leads her in a standard box step and they glide across the floor to the rhythm of the music. Dance partners repeated this routine, crossing generations and frequent fashion changes. There were variations to the waltz, but one steady rule: he led and his partner followed!
