Description

Four men dressed up for the occasion invite ladies to a waltz and start dancing. One of the ladies trips while the other dancers keep whirling around.

The lady and her clumsy partner are soon back on the dance floor. Not far away, a seat collapses under the weight of three people. A lady’s knee is slightly injured.

A fly has managed to get in and a lady tries to drive it away with her handkerchief. Her partner offers a chair to help her recover.

The rhythm is now boisterous and dancers are whirling faster until they finally sit down to rest. A man wipes his forehead and a breathless woman leans on her elbow.
The musical composition is also by Grandville.

The caption reads in the original French: Valse.
