Viennese Waltz has a quicker pace which distinguishes it from the regular Waltz. It’s danced to relatively fast-paced music and is a rotating dance that reminds us of glamorous old-time balls. Although it’s called the Viennese Waltz, the music certainly does not have to be Viennese. Dancers can also perform to top radio hits, country music, Celtic, or classical. The Viennese Waltz is exciting, both to dance and to watch, and is a favorite of social dancers and competitors.
