Not commenting on your song specifically, but we've gotten a bunch of songs over the years that were more suited to a Viennese rather than a conventional box waltz.   
And you guys don't do the Viennese Waltz because of the difficulty, right?

I'm not cool enough to -really- know the difference, but after a quick google search, it seems to be based on the speed of the song? Faster songs are better for Viennese and slower songs are better for box-step waltz? Is that correct?

Would something like this much slower live version be better-suited for a traditional waltz, perhaps?

Regardless of what the actual song is (though I'd love for it to be this one, if at all possible!), I'd still love to hear a jazz waltz or two at the ball. :D


Thank you for your consideration!

Nina Star 9,

You are correct.  The reason we do not do the Viennese Waltz is because of its difficulty, its potential for attendees to get hurt (the dance floor gets crowded), and just managing crowd control.  Just to let you know that we have discussed this in the past, and just could not come up with a workable solution.

To everyone else,

Thank you for your suggestions.  Please know that the staff of the Black and White Ball will listen to each suggestion and then determine if it is appropriate for the Ball.

I agree with this, ESPECIALLY Cantarella. But I recommend the Grace Edition of Cantarella since it's really fun-sounding to dance to. :) ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hmm7mbTRr-k Heres a link to it.) For Romeo and Cinderella, Miku's version would also be nice. :)

Why we don't teach Viennese -

Travelling involves rotation.  Imagine a floor full of people rotating at different rates...and not necessarily looking where they are going.

Out of curiosity, at about how many bpm does a 3-count song begin to count as a Viennese waltz rather than a "regular" waltz?

Waltz Song Suggestions:
Don Bluth's Anastasia - Once Upon a December - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpEoMe4a0IE
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Vladimir Dashkevitch & The Leningrad state philarmony orchestra) - Beryl's Waltz
Tsuritama OST (Kuricorder Quartet) - Tsuritama Jinta - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmHT6WGwsEc

Other songs I think might be fun to dance to at the ball but am far too inexperienced to categorize:
Vocaloid - Rolling Girl - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMDxKRx10mU
Zelda Ocarina of Time OST - Gerudo Valley - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6AGjanaVyQ <-- 10-minute version; I figured it would be easier to cut a long audio track short than extend the short version
Zelda Wind Waker OST - Dragon Roost Island - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXGGvsHq6iA (6/8 song so East Coast Swing maybe?)
Salt-N-Pepa - Push It - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4onJ7Z2MLI

Edit: More songs I thought of:
David Bowie - Just Dance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4d7Wp9kKjA
Baccano OST - Guns & Roses - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_F5459jCtuM

A few of my Stage Zero staff and friends wouldn't mind this song being danced to from your demonstrations on our stage:

You might hear a few YESses from us upon hearing it.

Thank you for your consideration.

I second the request for Romeo and Cinderella by Hatsune Miku! Personally I really like Hanatan's version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0t2oO-X41g
I think it might work for an East Coast Swing :)

Thanks for the requests! Absolutely loving how many people posted this past week. :)

We will take a look at your requests and decide if they are appropriate for the Ball.

p.s. - PurePlummet, since I personally haven't danced the Viennese waltz myself, I will let one of my staffers answer your question.  ;)

@PurePlummet - Typical Viennese waltzes are 174-180 bpm.  If you're familiar with music, it is usually written in 6/8 time at a tempo of 29-30 measures per minute, although it is sometimes written as a fast 3/4 at 58-60 measures per minute.

Thank you for all of the requests! We will take a look at everything and make a final decision as to whether they can be included into the playlist.

If you have any sudden requests, be sure to get them in before the end of the weekend! We're finalizing the playlist as we speak. :)
