Waltz

Waltz has 3/4 time and is danced at about 30 measures per minute (90 beats per minute). The fast Viennese Waltz has up to 60 measures per minute (120 beats per minute). All figures shown here can be combined with each other and can be danced to different speeds of music.


At the beginning it is advisable to start with small steps. Here you can see how you can dance on the same spot. This is the best way to avoid interference with other dancing couples.


At dancing contests dancers will dance anti- clockwise around the dance floor.


Since the figures are danced on the spot and since the videos are looped , the instructors will dance each position several times. You may either begin at the start position and join in as the dancers pass by or you may navigate the video to the position you require and start from there.


Video Control

The video controls are shown when you touch the screen. Each video (even the introduction) can be skipped by touching the „done’“- button in the upper lefthand corner.


Music

The music that has been chosen is very simple on purpose. This way it is easy to recognize the beat and to dance in step. To be able to meet all the requirements there are three different speeds: slow, medium and fast. The natural turn is shown slow and fast. Combination 1 is slow and the easier combination 2 is fast. All other figures have medium speed.


Compass View

The compass view will turn the video picture during the turn of the figure, so that the dance instructors will always be in front of you. The compass needle helps you to position yourself. If, before you start, you let it point to one direction of your dancefloor, you should face this direction again at the end of the figure.
