What's the Waltz Hold?

The Waltz Hold is also known as Closed. The partners are directly opposite each other. One partner faces forward while the other partner faces backward. The Man’s right hand is placed firmly on his partner’s back at the shoulder blade with the elbow raised and the arm bent sufficiently to hold the Lady close to him. The left hand of the Lady is placed at/on the shoulder of the Man so that her arm rests comfortably, elbow to elbow, on his upper arm. The left arm of the Man and the right arm of the Lady are extended comfortably at shoulder height.
