“Darf ich bitten? In case your German is rusty, that’s the traditional Viennese way to ask “May I have this dance?” In the Austrian capital, spiritual home to the “king of dances,” over 400 formal balls are held in the winter months.
The White Horse Black Mountain is a lot closer to home and hosts a waltz evening every third Wednesday of the month featuring far more than just the Viennese incarnation of the dance.
On Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. waltzers and listeners can enjoy live music provided by Suzanne Hosch on flute, Mike Guzalak on clarinet and vocals, violinist Diane Silver and pianist June Adinvicula. Those arriving without a partner will find plenty of willing waltzers on hand, and basic waltz lessons are offered from 6:30-7 p.m. for only $5.
The event begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8. Tickets available online at http://www.whitehorseblackmountain.com
