'Rumor Has It' the Waltz Is Back
But Revival Is Only Temporary

By PEG WEISS,
That favorite of Mrs. Kickem's,
dancing class, the waltz, is coming
back . . . but its second life won't be
its longest.
Digging the 19th century's "hot"
style out of its grave in the "Side-
walks of New York" is the Co. D
show, "Rumor Has It." Rumor has
it that the musical comedy features
a beautiful song in waltz time called
"So Much in Love," complete with
whirling dancers and a five-part
chorus.
The Co. D version of the waltz is a
mixture of the old and the new. The
melody and tempo are of the best
romantic tradition. But the harmony
will make Strauss stir in his grave
... and in the process he'll probably
sit up and take notice. And no doubt
he'll wish he had thought of it first.
Waltz Revival Inevitable
According to early previewers, the
catchy tune will probably catch Ann
Arbor as soon as the song is per-
formed, and the lyrics chime well
with spring, the Arboretum, and the
side of campus we don't see in the
daytime. So it all adds up to . . . yes,
a waltz revival.
But dancing the waltz in the
League ballroom is another matter.
Several problems will arise.
First of all, few Michigan men
know how to waltz. Some think they
are "divine dancers," and they still
dance the waltz the wrong way. "So
Much in Love" is written in the quick
tempo of the old waltz, ignoring the
modern trend to slow down the

dance. This tempo must be followed
correctly or not followed at all.
Takes Too Much Space
Secondly, the waltz takes space.
Those few who can really waltz need
the IM building to themselves, and
the League with several hundred
couples is no place for "So Much in
Love."
Third, waltzers twirl around in a
circle interminably, and it takes a
ballerina to waltz for even a short
while without finding the room up-
side-down. By the time the typical
Michigan couple reach the League
on a Saturday night, they are in no
condition to be made dizzier.
Position Important
But the payoff comes when we con-
sider the position in which the waltz,
the real, 19th-century waltz, is exe-
cuted. And it is this position which
will execute the waltz. The couple
should be at arm's length from each
other, and this presents the alterna-
tive of two problems. First, suppose
you're with a dud. When you're dan-
cing several feet from him or her,
you have to look at his or her face.
And they say four out of five, etc.
Second, suppose he or she is not a
dud. There's no reason why we
should have better imagination than
the reader, so we will go on to an-
other point.
Which is that the waltz will never
replace the two-step in Ann Arbor.
"So Much in Love" is a song which,
observers predict, will be a sensation.
But it cannot permanently, revolu-
tionize Michigan dancing. After a
short splurge, the waltz will settle
back in the attic and pick up the dust
of several more decades.
"Let's dance" . . . but it will be to
four-four time.
