The Pro-Am Dance Showcase in Vienna!

After an exciting 200-year long history, the Viennese Waltz is one of the five standard dances in the world; ballrooms, dances, New Year's Eve, the Vienna Philharmonics' New Year's Concert and THE ball of balls – the Vienna Opera Ball – would not be the same without it.

The event's title “Waltz Darling” is inspired by Vivienne Westwood and her ex-husband Malcolm McLaren. The couturier designed the costumes for the two instructors and Dancing Stars-darlings Kathrin Menzinger and Vadim Garbuzov for the Viennese Waltz at the New Year's Concert 2014.

Exactly 25 years ago punk legend McLaren brought out an album called “Waltz Darling” that contained new interpretations of Waltz melodies. The fact that Kathrin and Vadim wore creations by the legendary couturier during the New Year's Concert on 1st January 2014 and that the two are instructors for Arthur Murray – the organizer of “Waltz Darling” – simply rounds it all off.
