Waltz Week In Vienna


ABOUT THE BALLS:

There will be opportunities to attend up to three balls during Waltz Week in Vienna.  As a group, plan to get tickets for the IAEA Ball on Saturday, Feb 5th.  This will be a delightful finish to our week of classes.

If you need to leave Vienna early on Sunday, the BOKU Ball on Friday, Feb 4th might be a good option as well.  While not officially part of Waltz Week, the Physicians Ball on Saturday, Jan 29th is also a great option if you are arriving in Vienna early and would like to experience more than one ball during your time there. We would be happy to arrange tickets for you to attend (see registration page)

Incidentally, the Waltz Week organizers/teachers are planning to attend both the Physicians Ball on Jan 29th and the IAEA Ball on Feb 5th.  If you're planning on arriving early and attending the Physician's Ball, we would love to meet you and dance with you there!   Just let us know your plans. 

NOTE:  Tickets for the balls must be ordered through our website by January 10th to ensure enough time for our Vienna team to purchase and collect them.  Tickets ordered after January 11th cannot be guaranteed.  We will do our best to get them for you, but these balls can sell out quickly once the box office opens.  You will be refunded in full for any tickets you paid for but could not be obtained.
