Hello my name is Rosario Nene Ortega. I am a dance instructor at the Goddess Store in Hollywood Florida. In this clip I'm going to talk about the Viennese Waltz step. The Viennese Waltz differences from the American was because it's faster and because it moves forward and back, forward and back. So as the leader I'm going to start forward one two three, back two three. Slow motion, step, step change, now I'm going back step, step change. So it's one two three, one two three, one two three, one two three. So that's the difference between the the American Waltz and the Viennese Waltz, one two three, back two three, forward and back and forward and back. This has been Nene Ortega for the International Viennese Waltz in Hollywood Florida.
