At 11:11 am on 11/11 a new carnival season is
beginning. In Vienna, it is not just a beginning, it will be a huge
outdoor dancing event. More than 3,000 dancers are expected to perform the largest
quadrille of the world. Organised and hosted by the association of Viennese dance
schools, all Vienna will be dancing into carnival season. Everyone is
invited to join in at the Graben, one of the avenues leading to
Stephansplatz. With the assistance of professional dancers everyone will
be able to enjoy this early morning waltzing time. It is about fun and
joy, not perfection, they say...
So, if you are lucky enough to be in the area, join in and enjoy! And if not, you will have the opportunity to dance and enjoy at more than 450 balls this season.
