A unique life lesson. For someone with two left feet like me the instructor was both patient and fun. Just 3 couples in our class. Great prep if you're going to a ball. Wonderful intimacy with your partner. Boosted my confidence.

Philip was our instructor and was very patient and fun. When we arrived we were offered to buy a glass of wine or champange before the start of the lesson. Then lesson lasted about an hour and went by in a blink because we had so much fun. My husband and I enjoyed this way more than we thought we would.

5 stars is simply not enough!

My girlfriend and I booked onto this activity as a group session but, when we arrived, we were told that nobody else had booked into our class and so, at no extra cost, we were upgraded to a private class. Our teacher, Aga, was professional, approachable and fabulous at making both of us feel at ease and excited about learning the Austrian mainstay of the Waltz. As well as the dance tuition, which was second to none, she also informed us as to the cultural impacts of the waltz in the Austrian lifestyle which only added and enhanced the experience further.

An hour absolutely flew by and we only wish we would've had longer to dance the afternoon away...an activity that we would so, so highly recommend...a must to get the full Viennese experience.

Excellent fun!
Our instructor was clearly used to teaching at many different levels.
He also spoke really good English.
He started with basic box step and then progressed according to how well we got on.
Having covered the basic Viennese waltz steps, we were shown schunkelling which is a very useful simple step to use for changing direction or just catching your breath or timing. Then a few open moves which are shared with other dances.
