The Elegant Viennese Waltz

What is now called the Viennese waltz is the original form of the waltz. It was the first ballroom dance performed in the closed hold or "waltz" position. The dance that is popularly known as the waltz is actually the English or slow waltz, danced at approximately 90 beats per minute  while the Viennese Waltz is danced at about 180 beats a minute.

The Viennese Waltz is a rotary dance where the dancers are constantly turning either toward the leader's right (natural) or toward the leader's left (reverse), interspersed with non-rotating change steps to switch between the direction of rotation. A true Viennese waltz consists only of turns and change steps.

The Viennese Waltz is bold, yet elegant and a great style to know for social dance.

The class is for 4 weeks, cost is $36 per person payable to Dance on Air the first night.

    Asa Kevin mentioned, we could use 3 Follows. If you have previous experience, that would be great or we might be able to arrange an extra session. Write me directly if you're interested.

      I think a follow could start attending with this class and would not be behind. We can catch them up if needed. I'm not too far ahead, so they don't need to shoot too high given that fact that this is my first dance lesson!! Ladies, PLEASE sign up and share in the fun!
