Welcome to the World of the Viennese Waltz!
What are the roots of this dance - and can everybody dance the Viennese Waltz?
The earliest waltz done in Ballroom dancing is the Viennese Waltz. The tempo is quick, and the character is rotating with a constant flow and elegance. In the 18th century coming from the “Ländler” from Austria it was a very popular and criticized dance. Due the strong body contact of two people, the close standing was at the same time a difficult dance as well as obscene.
Finally, nobody could stop the Viennese Waltz and the famous composers Josef Lanner and Johann Strauss I and his son supported through their music the grow, so it became international greatness.
