Closed Position

When a couple dance together, they can be apart (Open Position) or close together - actually in body contact. A typical Ballroom Hold for the Waltz for example is a Closed Position. In Closed Position, the hold is usually one hand to hand and the other is supporting the partner. The idea is mutual support. The bodies stays in contact through the moves and the proximity is determined by the relationship.
