Viennese Waltz Basic Moves – Right Foot Change Step, Reverse Turn, Contra Check, Natural Turn

LEVEL: Beginner
STYLE: Viennese Waltz
This dance has fewer figures than any other, it is therefore considered easier to learn, but, the speed and rotation needs to be mastered to fully appreciate its essence. Whilst turning the man should encourage the lady to remain fully towards his right arm but with good connection slightly to the right of his ‘button’ line (centre line). The lady should maintain the weight to the man on Contra Check, resisting the lowering of the right heel as she steps back will help. Natural Turn and Reverse Turn steps should be repeated once an appropriate level of balance is achieved.
