The Ballroom and Latin Dances

Viennese Waltz

With such wonderful composers as Johann Strauss and others, the Waltz became more and more refined. Originally the steps became smaller - although advanced Viennese dancers now take comparable steps to the standard waltz - with the turns smoother and more compact.

The lilting music and the graceful flowing of the dancers costumes added to the elegant and enchanting Viennese Waltz. The speed of the movement and the amount of turns, however, do not make this an easy dance for beginners.
