The Elmayer Dance School in Vienna is owned and run by Professor Thomas Elmayer; the third generation of his family to run the school. The school is dedicated to teaching the Viennese traditions of etiquette, dance and ball ceremony protocol.
Elmayer is Vienna’s most prestigious dance school, and we work with them to provide private dance lessons for our Weekend a La Carte clients attending one of the amazing traditional Vienna Balls. Our two favourites that we offer is the romantic Strauss Ball on the eve of Valentines Day on the 13th February 2016 , held in the historical surroundings of the Kursalon, or the New Years Eve Ball at the Hofburg Imperial Palace, both in central Vienna.
We recognise it would be so frustrating to attend an elegant Viennese Ball and then feel unconfident enough in your dance skills to join in, and so we organise private 2 hour lessons where you can learn and refine your Waltz before the big evening at a Vienna Ball. The joy of it being private is that the tutor can totally tailor the level according to your standard, Beginners and those needing refreshment are equally welcome!
The air conditioned rooms are cool in the summer and warm in the winter so perfect for your lessons year round, though it is recommended you take smooth soled shoes with you in which to have your lesson – especially if you are wearing grippy shoes in the winter to combat the icy pavements!
Attending a Ball in Vienna is really a very elegant refined affair!
