I/II 🎶 Vienna and the Waltz 🎶 ‘One of the most enduring images of Vienna is of a city that waltzes. Elegantly dressed couples whirl around the ballroom as an orchestra plays something by Strauss – Johann II.
The waltz was associated with Vienna’s culture from the earliest stages of the dance’s evolution, through the public dance halls that opened there in the early 1800s, notably the Sperl in 1807. This identification of dance with city really took off with the musical rise and supremacy of the dance orchestras of Joseph Lanner and Johann Strauss I, and the popular waltzes those composer-conductors wrote for them. When Johann Strauss I toured around the continent, that association was sealed internationally.’ - John Snelson

Welcome to the official Johann #straussgala2019 insta account! 🎉🎉🎉
The dancers have started rehearsals today with director and choreographer #AlexandraWorrall and we are really excited to take you behind the scenes as we create our new show for 2019:
“An enchanting concert of all your favourite waltzes and polkas. Snow falls gently on the gilded ballrooms of old Vienna and young couples skate on the frozen Danube, romance is in the air. The elegant dancers in their billowing gowns flamboyantly whirl to the music of Johann Strauss and friends. Music that comes from the heart of Vienna, dancing as if in a winter wonderland.” - @raymondgubbayuk
MY STORY 📝
Currently I am a successful digital entrepreneur, running an online business. Maryanne Thompson is being a registered TRADE MARK. 👩🏽💻
I wanna be one of the most recognized female personas in the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain,
I am the Vice President @cointelegraph
I am a world-renown special guest, crypto influencer, speaker and interviewer, attending more than 10 intercontinental FinTech conferences per year. 🌐
That is who I am now, but this is who I was 10 years ago...
It was a snowy day as I was on my way to a boring office job, anticipating writing excel spreadsheets for the next 8 hours of my day. I was not always a powerful women as I am today, I had an abusive husband. I felt so miserable. At nights, I studied at University to get a PHD, dreaming to become a professor.
Then, I had the opportunity to go to the US and study at Virginia Commonwealth University and I found that in America I could get a working visa by teaching ballroom dancing. Latin American dance, in the US has always been popular, so I knew that I could make a living by being a ballroom dancer and instructor.
When I came back to Europe, divorced, which sounds funny to me now but was an extremely difficult decision to make back then, being all alone, at the age of 22 I decided to immigrate to New York. My parents were against it, professors and friends too, which made this idea even harder to pursue. Nobody believed in this idea, in me, except for myself...
A girl moving to US! Who’s waiting for you there? nobody ... 🇺🇸

Поговорим о взрослых🤩
Не многие знают, что возможность участвовать в соревнованиях по бальным танцам есть не только у детей, но и у взрослых! Выступление дуэтов на нашем турнире «Зимние этюды» - прямое тому доказательство☝🏻
Вальс, танго, румба, джайв - нет танца, который был бы исполнен без энтузиазма и любви к танцевальному искусству. Участники турнира - пример того, как нужно проводить свободное время😉
Особо ценно для нас, что выступают не только наши, нижегородские пары, но и иногородние!😎
