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.

    Is a partner required? May I join this week or is it a series and I should wait until the start of the next one? Finally, I have my 11year old son every other week; is it okay if I bring him and he watches? Thanks!
