V is For Viennese Watz
It is a series of fast turns as the couples progress down the floor in the line of dance.
The dresses are reminscient of the old European Romantic Era. Spectators enjoy watching the graceful lilt of the fast turns as the coupes find their way around the floor.
Viennese Waltz was never wildly popular with the competitors when I danced. I find that a dance where the dancers step on every beat is boring and just a lot of hard work. Many couples shared my opinion but I can't speak for the dancers of today. Although my partner and I always scored high on the Viennese, my mind would sometimes wander and it was the only dance I couldn't stay focused on.
