What is Austria Fortnight?

To help everyone get into the spirit of social dance, our Austria Fortnight classes are 15 informal dance lessons at Stanford’s campus in the two weeks before the 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!
