Spent a most enjoyable dance session with Aga in the beautiful new studio which was only opened about 3 weeks ago. As we were the only couple who had booked for that particular time we had a private lesson.
We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in the techniques and traditions of Viennese Waltz. Aga was an excellent instructor with perfect English and made this a most entertaining experience. She even added a new word to our dance vocabulary 'schunkeling'

My fiancee and I decided to try the waltz while we were in Vienna. It was a great experience that I only wish we could repeat! We were the only couple who signed up for our particular session, so we were upgraded to a private lesson. On top of it, our instructor gave us history on the background of the dance as well as the culture surrounding it. 10/10, would definitely recommend to anyone even considering it.

My Viennese Waltz was a mixture of the history of the dance and some practical technical applications regarding the traditional versus American style of Waltz. My instructor, Aga Chochorek, was excellent in her presentation and instruction and all in all this lesson in Vienna was a highlight of my trip through Europe.

As the only ones there we had a private lesson which lasted longer than scheduled. Really good fun as a complete novice dancing with a more experienced partner so suitable for all. The instructor was wonderful escorting us to the underground when we asked for directions and recommend places to visit.

Excellent teacher who was kindly, patient and very generous with his compliments! We made quite a lot of progress (relatively) in the one hour lesson.
Really enjoyed our time.
