Waltzing Classics from Classic FM
With reality TV shows like Strictly having popularised ballroom dancing, this is a timely entrance for Waltzing Classics. From Strauss II's By the Beautiful Danube to Waldteufel's The Skater's Waltz, with everything in between including Pas de Quatre from The Sleeping Beauty, this is the ultimate collection from Classic FM.
Before listening to Waltzing Classics, I had no idea that so many musical compositions were classed as waltzs – but who cares, this collection will lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face as you recognise one tune and learn to love another.
There are 15 tracks on each disc of this Classic FM collection which culminates in I Could Have Danced All Night. This is great music for kids to move around to – you're not on TV so it doesn't matter if you don't know the steps but you could always get the children to dress up on a wet afternoon and burn off some calories dancing as well as have some fun time listening to great music.
