The Ravensburger Waltz is a dance skated in waltz time, at a tempo of 66 three-beat measures per minute (198 beats per minute).
It was invented by German dancers Angelika Buck and Erich Buck, (both born in Ravensburg, West Germany) and their coach Betty Callaway. It was first performed at the West German Figure Skating Championships in Krefeld in 1973, the year after the Bucks won the European Championships.
The Ravensburger Waltz was chosen for the pool of compulsory dances for the Senior Level competitions in the 1976-7, 1982-3, 1990-1, 1994-5, 1998-9, 2001-2, 2003-4 and 2005-6 seasons. Major competitions for which it was selected include the 1991 Worlds, 2006 Worlds and 2006 Olympics.
