5 38 Reviews | Add your review

Once seen as scandalous, the waltz is now an integral part of Viennese culture—UNESCO inscribed it on Austria’s list of intangible cultural heritage traditions. Hundreds of dance schools and balls in the Austrian capital offer lots of ops to swirl around the dance floor. Here’s how to get comfortable on your waltzing feet.

Highlights
  • Practice with friends, as a couple, or with the whole family during a dance lesson. Learn the basics of the Viennese waltz, and receive helpful tips and assistance from an instructor as you try out the movements.
  • Find out more about formal ballroom etiquette and the strict dress code of Viennese balls, which decrees white ties or military uniforms for men and full-length ball gowns for women.
  • Gain deeper insight into Vienna’s music scene by combining a waltz lesson at a dance school with additional musical activities, such as a walking tour of the Ringstrasse’s great concert halls, a Mozart and Strauss concert at the Vienna Kursalon, and a visit to the House of Music (Haus der Musik). 
  • Show off your new waltzing skills at a New Year’s Eve celebration in a grand ballroom at Vienna’s City Hall. 
  • Choose between private or group lessons. Most classes run for about an hour, giving you ample time to get familiar with the basic waltz steps.
