Want to feel like a princess? If Audrey Hepburn can learn it, so can you! The Viennese Waltz, as we know it today, was first danced in the courts of European Royalty during the Strauss era (1800s). The music is so closely linked in our minds with names like Vienna, The Blue Danube and Strauss. Couples dancing the Viennese Waltz whirl around the floor to the left and right, and because of the speed of the movement the dance requires a great deal of control and stamina.
