Waltz & tango ballroom
A Viennese Ball is not entirely dedicated to waltz : a true Viennese ball is a feast for dance, with several rooms and atmospheres, so as to dance many dances in couple, whatever your level is.
Animated by an orchestra together with a selection of recordings from the dancing school VOTRE BAL / VOTRE VALSE, that is specialised in the organisation of Viennese balls, the Waltz Ballroom is the place where to dream and be surprised!
At 12.30 am, in that very room, by following our maestro, you will have the occasion to improvize an incredible QUADRILLE, or Viennese reel, a delightful tradition of every Viennese ball. No need to know how to dance it ! Nearly 600 people who know little or nothing of the reel line up and break the ice by learning to dance on the spot with everyone : one of the most congenial and funny moments in a Viennese ball !
Viennese music will also be celebrated with polkas during the whole night.
At 1:00, the TANGO comes to the waltz room for a bit more of half an hour after a show by the professional couple MARIANO AND LOUISE. Magic!
LOUISE DAVID-GAUNA and MARIANO GAUNA make us the great honour of launching the tango moment for the second time, for the 2018 Bal des Parisiennes, at 1.00 am. France champions of tango in 2015 in the category "Tango for dancefloor", they are a reference, due to their extraordinary style, their different actions to promote this dance, and their remarkable carreer.
Louise David-Gauna has been formed as a classical musician, and an iceskater, before becoming an exceptional tanguera, in particular with MARIANO GAUNA. Mariano Gauna has practised traditional dances, then tango, since the age of 10 in Argentina. He has been awarded many prizes. They have performed successfully in Buenos Aires and all over the world since they met in 2006. They are the creators and organisors of the International Festival of Tango in France at Châteaulin.
Waltz will carry on afterwards till 5.00 am.
