Description :

The waltz originated in the 18th century and by the early 19th century was extremely popular. Initially it was objected to because of the risk to health it posed by whirling around the room so quickly and also on a moral basis because the gentleman's hand was placed around the woman's waist

Harry Jackson also wrote Australia's own, The Digger's return and Della.
