Lovely flowing Viennese Waltz - not hard despite the 96 counts but the bridge has proved the most challenging part to master for my class. You only get one go at it and then you have to combine timing, footwork and arms! For some, its almost been and gone before they've realised! Great fun though.

WINDY CITY WALTZ 28.11.12Enjoyed this waltz flowed nicely to this music track. The only negative comment is that the tag seemed out of character with the overall choreography.

Saw the videos for this one and was unsure about the pace as it seemed a bit fast. However, now I have learnt it, I've realised I never should have doubted this one. What a fantastic dance! The music is amazing and the steps fit it beautifully. I have mixed feelings about the bridge. The bridge itself is perfect, however it feels like it needs another 12 counts then a restart. Maybe I'm just being picky, but this one truly deserves to be in the Top Ten. Great job Ria, Simon & Ria!

This is a fantastic beautiful waltz that fits perfectly to the phrasing in the music. Don't be put off by the length or that it is listed as advanced as it is much easier than it seems and once you have it you can't stop dancing it. Excellant choreography. The step sheet on linedancer seems to have faults but the version on Ria's website is correct.

How can you not love this one?Great track lovely dance which once mastered fits beautifully.The sheet is a bit misleading particularly the first section,but watch the choreographers video and all becomes crystal clear!

What a wonderful story this dance tells, beautifully written to "I love you" by the incredible Faith Hill. Loads of opportunitys for self styling and expression. Ria taught us this at her workshop in Folkestone this weekend and we danced it 6 times over the weekend, a huge hit for sure. Easy spotted r/s and bridge is great fun with everybody putting in their own styling. Don't miss out....get it on the dancefloor!

I've been wanting to learn this dance for ages but not found the time to do it myself so I was over the moon when it was taught last night. This is a really beautiful waltz and every step fits every beat of the music, which is equally as beautiful. Well deserving of many more than 5 stars!!!

I have to agree with the other comments great track and plenty of opportunities for your own styling and interpretation. I dance it for the first time this week and found it flowed really well, your momentum and balance were always in the right place and direction sign of a good choreographer great to dance - well done Simon, Ria and Daz

A fabulous waltz, great music and great steps. It does seem a lot shorter because of all the 'Holds'. I agree with the previous comments about the wording on the step sheet. I just dance it,and call it, as per the video of the choreographers.

A most beautiful Viennese waltz written to a fantastic power ballad.The dance has many holds, step drags and twinkles and seems much shorter than its 96 steps.There is one restart and a very expressive bridge. The detailed steps do not always match the headings on the step sheet or the instructions on the video of the dance. Correction needed here.Great work by Simon, Ria and Darren. This deserves to be a big hit.
