People learn a lot of new things while traveling. They learn about many other cultures and even use them in their daily life and in their own culture. The use of different characteristics in one’s own culture makes daily life more diverse and interesting. When a group of students returned from their trip in 1978, they brought back a lot of news and lore. Students in the Stanford-Austria program at Stanford University have felt very satisfied and fulfilled. They were particularly drawn to ballroom dancing. Especially the famous waltz attracted them a lot, and bringing its tradition home, they also tried it. They enthusiastically began organizing the annual Stanford University Associate Student Dance. The guests at the Stanford Vienna Ball were all dressed in a matching and elegant style. They began their mornings with a graceful dance, the waltz. They enjoyed the presence of a live symphony orchestra and spent their day under interesting notes.
One of the Australian customs brought by the students was to eat, drink and enjoy the day. During the Parahandts, another strange phenomenon occurred: roast pork was thrown here and there as a sign of abundance. The event brought together more than 1,000 guests and marked the opening ceremony of Stanford’s Vienna Ball. Their performance was unforgettable. In 2013, the performance had 10.6 million views. The Stanford Vienna Ball commission that year featured their waltz as Opus 316, or Künstlerleben. This results in the opening ceremony of the artists, the first waltz begins with good humor, excitement and delicate notes accompanying the waltz. All the guests were fascinated. The loud music touched hearts and people were fascinated to see the fusion of their culture and Australia. The impressive dance was really perfect, the movements were carefully thought out. The young students danced in a circle in the hall, showing the cultural years and the characteristics they brought. A similar performance was achieved with great fanfare and at a high level. Everyone was looking forward to next year’s VSLS. This time, the young people were really charmed by their dance and their flexibility, and the committee was really surprised and did not know how to express both its amusement and its admiration.
