According to the motto “Everybody Waltz!”, there will be a crash course in waltzing every 30 minutes in the banqueting hall of the Vienna Town Hall (North Buffet). Two dance teachers will show you the steps’ sequence and movements for this vibrant, twirling dance. Just come along and let yourself be carried off into the world of the Vienna Waltz!
Participation is free and you don’t need to book in advance though there are limited numbers for each session. The sessions begin every half an hour.
We‘ll invite you and all dance enthusiasts onto the stage of the banqueting hall to display your freshly acquired prowess. The floor is yours to the accompaniment of classical music with “Waltz Time” a regular feature on the programme. If you don’t have a dance partner, there’ll be “Taxi Dancers” on hand to sweep you through the magnificent banqueting Hall in ¾ tempo.
