Taxi Dancers at the 3. Salzburg Festival Ball

I enjoy taxi dancing because one is always in good company and is doing both the ladies and the gentlemen who are not as keen on dancing a favour – thus the motivation of the former professional ballroom dancer Stefan L. to travel from Vienna to Salzburg’s Festival Ball and act as a taxi dancer. He is one of 10 so-called taxi dancers of all ages who will be waiting at the taxi dancers’ booth inside the Felsenreitschule ballroom to be “borrowed” by dance-loving ladies for two to three dances. Not all the taxi dancers are professionals, but all of them have a gold-star command of the standard ballroom dances, and they look forward to leading you onto the dance floor on August 30 at the Salzburg Festival Ball at the Felsenreitschule!
