Slow Waltz & Viennese Waltz Level 1 (Basics)

Learn to Glide Across the Floor!

The oldest of the ballroom dances, Waltz is elegant and romantic. It evolved sometime in the 1700s from a German and Austrian peasant dance called the “Landler”. There are many types of Waltz, from classic to Cajun and from Victorian to Country. What they all share in common is a distinctive 1-2-3 rhythm.

In this class you’ll learn the basics in 2 styles of Waltz—Slow Waltz and Viennese Waltz. Both are contemporary ballroom dances. Slow Waltz is graceful and leisurely. Viennese Waltz is athletic, rotary, and danced at twice the speed of Slow Waltz.

Come learn to glide across the floor to both slow and fast Waltz music.

Absolutely no dance experience or partner required.

Price: $25 for 4-week series
