Viennise Waltz

Although commonly believed to have originated in Austria in the early 1800’s, it is known that a dance with similar characteristics was popular with French peasants in the mid 1500’s. The dance was known as that time as the “Volta”, (Italian for “the turn.”) The dance as we know it, was immortalized in the 1800’s by such composers as Joseph Lanner and Johann and Josef Strauss. In the middle of the 20th Century, the German, Paul Krebs choreographed the Viennese Waltz style to which we dance today. The dance enjoys a great deal of popularity not only in Europe but also in America, and has been used in many Hollywood productions.
