Last year I wrote up Massachusetts dancing master George F. Walters' Exeter Caprice, one of two Walters dances that appeared in the second edition of F. Leslie Clendenen's 1914 compilation, Dance Mad. The other was the Exeter Waltz, a hesitation waltz sequence which, at sixteen bars, is long enough to function as a standalone sequence dance or, if the surrounding dancers are accustomed to accommodating hesitations, used as a puzzle-piece for improvisation. There is no choreographic connection between the Exeter Waltz and the Exeter Caprice.
There were some difficulties in reconstructing the Exeter Waltz (see the Reconstruction Notes below); the following version is what I came up with after some experimentation with different possibilities.
Starting position: normal ballroom hold, gentleman's back to line of dance and lady facing line of dance. Gentleman starts left foot, lady right. The instructions below are given for the gentleman; the lady dances opposite.
The dance consists of sixteen measures of waltz music divided into two eight-bar sections. Turns to the right are clockwise or natural; turns to the left are counter-clockwise or reverse.
