Patterns, Step Charts & Additional Information

“The Viennese Waltz is a light and graceful dance which must be skated at a good pace with strongly curved edges, soft knee action, neat and unobtrusive footwork, elegant carriage and pronounced free leg extension, even on the one-beat steps. Body motion should not be excessive. Evenly controlled flow without obvious effort is desirable. The feeling of waltzing in a grand ballroom must be projected.”

Inventors – Eric van der Weyden and Eva Keats
First Performance – London, Streatham Ice Rink, 1934
