Description

The Viennese Waltz is the original form of the waltz. Despite some controversy over the intimacy of the dance’s hold, it became highly popular in — where else? — Romantic-era Vienna, Austria, breaking the trend of European social dances as communal sequence dances. A rotary dance, the Viennese Waltz is characterized by its simplicity and old-world elegance.
