Details

Cross-step Waltz 2pm to 2:45pm, Viennese Waltz 2:50pm to 4pm.

Learn Cross-step Waltz, the favourite Waltz of many people. It is usually done to slower tempos than Viennese Waltz.

Learn traditional Viennese Waltz, one of the best and most fun partner dances ever. Popular from the early 19th century onward. Done at tempos from slow to fast, to great music of the 21st, 20th and 19th centuries.

Left-turning and Right-turning Viennese Waltz (rotating to your left or right as you travel with a partner), and the turning basic of Cross-step are taught in our workshops.

Presented by Waltz Toronto, a special project of Swing Toronto. Please tell your friends and spread the word!
