We will slowly but surely teach you skills in the Viennese Waltz to prepare you for this incredible experience, with 6 evenings instruction. You will learn basics of several styes of Waltzing, to include Smooth, Standard, and social style ! By the end, you will have developed skills that will enable you to function socially in any Viennese Waltz setting, and you will also make a lot of dance friends while doing so.

“Oh, well. What’s a royal ball?
After all, I suppose it would be frightfully dull,
and-and-and boring, and-and completely…
Completely wonderful.” -Cindarella
