] PS--When did the waltz come in?
Off the top of my head:
The waltz was there at the Vienna-congress, but it was considered highly indecent for quite some time. A man and a woman, embracing .... IN PUBLIC. I beg you.
So even if it had been "invented" at the time of JA, it would not have been danced at decent establishments.
It was very fast.
