"We were in Vienna for one of the balls and none in our group knew how to waltz. This was a perfect way to learn how to dance right before the ball."

Vienna’s Ball Season

The Vienna Ball Season is a set of individual Gala and Dance events in the winter months between November and March each year and taking place in the most glamorous Palaces in the city. This period of the year is probably the most magic one and the entire city of Vienna is transforming into an enormous ballroom dancing to the famous Waltzes of Johann Strauss.

Groups might find these events very entertaining. waltz in vienna is therefore arranging privatised ball preparation programs for groups of 50+ guests.

Why attending a Ball in Vienna?

Vienna's most important cultural heritages are the Original Viennese Waltz and the winterly ball season. These sets of events have been influencing the social and political life in the city for centuries and are still firmly fixed in the live of the locals nowadays. And since the Viennese Balls are quite entertaining and dancing the Original Waltz and Midnight Quadrille is quite a bit of fun, these events perfectly showcase a local heritage and offer a deep insight into the Viennese culture as no other event of the year does - apart from the New Year's Concert, maybe.

Which Ball to attend?

Well, there are different traditions and everybody, depending on the profession or family background is attending a different ball. Additionally, most of the Austrian associations and institutions are arranging their own Viennese Ball, which leaves you with a wide range of choices, from the famous Vienna Opera Ball, to the Ball of the Philharmonics or the rather touristy New Year's Ball at the Imperial Palace.

We recommend to simply chose one Viennese Ball, prepare for it at our Dance Schools and enjoy being the star for an evening.
