Dances of the Biedermeier era

This workshop introduces to the dances of the early Romantic Era in Vienna - the time of Schubert and Beethoven. Early figured waltzes, lively quadrilles and graceful laendlers (allemandes/German dances) are as enjoyable now as when the young Lanner and Strauß conducted their famous dance orchestras.

Suitable for beginners. No need to bring a partner!
