American Viennese Waltz
The Viennese Waltz is a genre of Ballroom Style. It’s the oldest of all Ballroom dances, emerging in the second half of the 18th century influenced by German and Austrian dance styles.
The Viennese Waltz is a rotary dance where the dancers are constantly turning either toward the leader’s right (natural) or toward the leader’s left (reverse), interspersed with non-rotating change steps to switch between the direction of rotation.
American-style Viennese Waltz has much more freedom, both in dance positions and syllabus. American-style Viennese Waltz figures and side sway or underarm turns are modern inventions that very popular in Social Dancing.
