What is Austria Fortnight?

To help everyone get into the spirit of social dance, our Austria Fortnight classes are 14 informal dance lessons at Stanford’s campus in the two weeks before Viennese Ball. These classes are free and open to the public, and you can attend as many as you’d like!

Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you can move easily in. Classes will begin promptly at the indicated time and progress quickly, so be sure to arrive on time to get the most out of them!

Class Schedule

We will host classes every evening from 8-10PM, between Jan 18 and Jan 31, 2020 on Stanford campus, with Bon Bon Ball kicking it off on the evening of Jan 17.
