The oldest of today’s ballroom dances, the Viennese waltz dates back to the 18th century. Arrive at your dance school in the heart of the city to master the basics in just under an hour.
Your instructor will guide you as you learn the steps of the waltz to music from Karl Michael Ziehrer, Joseph Lanner and the prominent Johann Strauss, whose classical compositions brought fame and attention to the Viennese waltz around Europe.
Move to three-quarter time around the dance floor with your partner while your instructor shows you how to follow the pattern of the steps. After your 45 minutes are up, you’ll have a basic knowledge of this centuries-old dance to take back home with you.
