Laendler Waltz from The Sound of Music

 bnp

Ken and Deanna will be teaching the Laendler this week! The Laendler is probably best known as that waltz in The Sound of Music in which Maria and Captain von Trapp share their “first dance.” Since the original dance is a bit long,  we will teach a simplified version of the Laendler, as choreographed by Richard Powers. (This is the version that was last taught at FNW in 2015.) Though this waltz is choreographed, many of the steps in the Laendler can be casually thrown in a social dance too!


You can see a video of this choreography here.


7:15pm - Introductory Rotary Waltz class. Beginners welcome!


8pm - All-levels (and I mean, all levels!) Laendler class. Attendance to the 7:15 class is not required, but we will introduce steps that will add on top of moves from the first class.


The choreography lasts about 45 seconds but repeats 4 times in the music.  We'll play the Laendler and a few other Sound of Music favorites during the social dance.

Deanna is our dj for Waltz and Polka dancing from 9 to midnight.
