I agree that the Viennese Waltz is not that difficult to learn, but it it is tough to do well. Once you learn upper body control in the waltz, the Quickstep is easier. I would not teach quickstep to a beginner, but have taught often taught the American tango before the waltz. It's amazing the difficulty many people have with 3/4 time.Originally Posted by tango7;3852848;
Frankly, since most people probably find almost every dance more interesting that the waltz, it does make sense to save those with more flash for later in the season when the neophytes begin to show some skill. I can't imagine the me doing Paso Doble in week one unless ABC had thoughts of turning DWTS into a comedy.
