makes them so appealing to a modern north koreans and how long it might take to get an absolute beginner to the. business school in moscow which claims it can teach anybody how to dumps so i'm going to put the theory to the test and apparently there are always sorts of men so hopefully this should be a place for me. good evening everyone the judge today will learn the viennese waltz which you can dance at the ball roll. it was time to start learning the basics twiddling round by myself everything seemed pretty easy but a solo waltz wasn't exactly going to cut it take the ladies right hand. the gentleman's right hand system a lady's left shoulder blade
a little closer. to time. while the. the. to stare at my feet and count out loud we made a few circuits of the room with only minimal damage to obvious toes. but there is a. good enough to actually not look like a total idiot of the. u.k. to find. a story that's not as have been a traffic jam. or instructive demon has been teaching for the best part of twenty years and says he's never seen don't sing more popular. though she wasn't the most because of it is important because whenever you go to any public place like a restaurant there's always room for dancing to the so you get a feeling of confidence when you know that you can invite
a lady to the dance floor. raise your hand. and then whisper you know i think that the first true taste for dancing only comes after three months of practice. but. unfortunately for me i didn't have quite that long if i was going to make it to another daunts i was going to need some serious help to have a question that is coming up and i really need a partner. would you come with. basic or wonderful. but sect myself a great overhaul but clearly i'm just going to have to get myself properly prepared culture isn't just about dancing and i was going to have to brush up on my fashion and my etiquette. most here we see the most authentic russian romanticism this is
a fake mc dress for the it's accentuate and the like shawl and hat only single women were allowed to have uncovered heads they had highly decorated hairstyles to married women whether at the ball or at home were required to wear half the summer they danced in the stress of balls but it would be worn only at a local summer gatherings so some school if we look at the male costume we see the dress code was colorful and return to the fashion scene in color courses the shirts of most of most tickets. this is the costume for the middle of the nineteenth century. that's the sort of thing open with full. by this time they are wearing black coats and black trousers in comparison with very elaborate gowns for the ladies men look like exclamation points bringing attention to female beauty. and want to remind you that you could make a costume like that to me the core question of course brilliant or. excuse me for
a moment well this. is how the first story. accordions both on the one hand the bulwarks is the most democratic place. most of all you can invite anyone you like your board so just but if you want to invite a lady who is standing next to a gentleman you should ask his permission first ball yet the ballroom is also a very patriarchal place in the past jewels in russia were forbidden of but there is one exception if someone stood on your partner's dress you were obliged to challenge him to do it only in that instance did the emperor permit it just do it.
with the cooperation women were able to communicate with fans with the man knew what was being directed at the hands as nails the final why right arm to the heart without little means i love you. other movements had other meanings this one means i have no interest in that when a lady does this it means she likes it. when the lady flaps her family like this that's your signal to invite her to dance and then. stand facing one another the gentleman takes a step to the right. that is gentleman embrace your partner.
already. and of all. the off the. us the us the. us. are slowly excellent off. involved. in iraq you have wonderful shoes train is the best and they put me on that doesn't trust me boast or. do we are ok just try it in front of front and back and by three in the front yes that they do in a couple ok. it wasn't perfect but it was as good as it was going to get and the next day i headed to remiss to pick up my cost you. know what something near you
have an address from the middle of the nineteenth century. that you know this hoop skirt around is made of silk taffeta there's about nine leaders here at that time flowers were very fashionable just because now i'll show you my pride and joy just because it's a carnival gown from the sixteenth century. i'm not saying it's all sewn by hand. all silk and silk embroidered fabric it's such a beauty. and the ball all of this beauty was exempted by the seriousness rigor and restraint in male attire which of those two that's the kind of out that we've got for you. so this is going to make me her fleer fashionable gent of the a scene fifty's now just to see if everything fits and it seems the trend of the day was for very small clothing. for those of us in the best needs to be tight
even in paintings you'll see that the male figure it's the females. and waist and the small shops of big kids here ladies for mother we can't put the cakes james bill for the next week. like that. we get one finally feel a sense of james the dandy you schol go to the ball. shows. the women of the time spent about six hours in hare krishna the headdress a has to have a high level of professionalism in order to make such a hairstyle. they used a shine to greek statues as models. the style uses lots of walks and curls
consumed these hairpiece holds these hair out of fashion we have spirals at the temples we discount it's a very romantic style and very playful. especially in dance when a girl dances and flips her curls it's amazing. it's a super wonderful thank you but you know you're ready for the ball and. we would john sing in the more of your old apostle museum a building that's over two hundred years old and that's recently undergone a long restoration by descendants of its former owners and amazingly everything seemed to go off without a hitch. so
it's like a little. right i think now that we finally got the balls out of the way without too many cups is that what's made to stick with it what you think you close out here leaves that feeling down here meeting new people lingering done things nice atmosphere music everything together all together it's like a bronstein you get used to it and you get addicted to it i would like to get that they think that. the house used to play host to the aristocracy of the intelligentsia and it set me truth i'm in such all centered surroundings and among beautifully dressed people it's easy to lose yourself. and it's possible i may have
a final decision. has changed his life and the world around him. by giving up. hope. and love to some. many children. nikolai the miracle worker on tape. let me let me alone i would not let me ask you a question. here i missed that word is what rat in the bank we have our knives out. but if you give the fattest a bad thing mares again you're in a situation where be i going to talk about your name let me. go on.
owner had been satisfied and as i rode back towards the twenty first century it was finally time to read a message i've been passed up the dots. james i'd like to invite you to join me at the first russian viennese ball in montrose switzerland it should be a memorable event if you'd like to attend please join me at the imperial tailoring company in moscow next monday at noon if you'll need to pick out something elegant hope to see you there victor. there was no way i could pass up a chance like this viennese ball is renowned as the best event of the season and i knew the picture was one of the men in charge. now it might be a traditional ball but i don't think the eight hundred fifty look is going to cut
it in switzerland so i'm here to meet up with victor and hopefully pick up something a little bit more. pictures time james stuff this is yeah well now we need to choose a suit for you i've already chosen the one for me this one please. me had good taste it brought me to moscow's imperial tailoring company where they make some of the best clothes in the business. runs. really well james and generally look really very good i think fit perfectly but maybe some small items for example your trousers would be the longer right thing and maybe a bad fake some more buttons all. this was just yeah yeah but in general it's perfect and of course there's always place or something we could always do best ok
right. of course about where. your. knowledge and this is ya see it you look really perfect thank you very much well i don't think that daniel craig has anything to worry about but you can't help but feel a bit special and something like this so was out switzerland because we're going to get. a few days around to it off thousand kilometers later i'd arrived in the small swiss municipality of montrose and it certainly didn't disappoint. when you miss the room has to be the most complete film for most of us so your room is ready this is a room with nicky thank you well this is a bit special isn't it a five star hotel for a five star event. the viennese ball
has taken place in moscow under around europe since two thousand and three it's the brainchild of organizer alexander smog and i caught up with him to see why he decided to hold this one in montreal. first of all we never did a ball into the life. we decided to do it and when we're choosing the place we consulted with some. bottles from three of the seeds a lot so they said that. look at this is beautiful small town on the lake so it came here as facially to check the place i was raised so we decided to make both here. more than twenty thousand people have attended alexander's dancers and each one is planned down to the last detail how much preparation goes into. it wasn't like this you know it seems. that it is
very easy but it is not so definitely. to make a real ball you have several levels of it but you have to bring distress to august first at least once and for any one just all just that seemed. to get the ball take three downs flaws in all the people have to submit it to the dogs because of this is all. i can already tell it was going to be a member occasion and according to conduct a alfred a very multicultural one. this evening is really very special because we have different problems to solve and we have singers from russia and we have a ballet from russia and it will fester from it to italy and i'm from austria so it's an international event absolutely well we'll let you get back because obviously you need scrivener thank you very much take it away must thank you very much.
guests were beginning to arrive but i couldn't resist one last trip to the hotel's engine room. while my nose has led me to probably the most important place in the hotel this evening the kitchen whether i mean all of these things for the ball so i could be a little bit careful because i want to get ten angry sets around me that could be dangerous. they're making full courses to feed four hundred guests so there's not much time to hang around admired their work and with lobster and white growled the menu safe to say i was looking forward to dip. into my mouth water but times getting close. while more and more guests began the night with a glass of champagne i went to meet victor and it turned out he had a rather unexpected surprise in store. for him
this is. this is my own thanks because as we're having one big problem with liking the debutante at the moment i would like to feel and maybe there are never enough men are that always so many beautiful women and never enough men yes my pleasure if you would if you will have a. great. i had planned to hang back and take part in some of the big group don'ts is this time and i was suddenly very nervous if this was the same years debutant bullshit was more important than ever that i didn't mess up still at least i didn't have long to think about it. with dozens of couples performing the figure waltz we did have a few problems with traffic but with
a few well timed wolds we made it to be at the men we could really enjoy ourselves . you're loving life you know hindsight you never really say it's like. you to be made so made you. think i. could take some kind of thank. you. but it certainly leaves you out of breath and it gave me a chance to chat with samia about why she had decided to become
a debutante met so many different younger people who seem to be taking to this what is it that appeals to this as opposed to the traditional kind of going out on a friday night listening in a culture that you know. sauce unleashes a feast and it comes from this question of the stuff that you started to live east also very interesting here because on the last night you know these began little bodies in silence. as the evening wore on the old distro was replaced by a jazz band and the music became a little less classical but then surprisingly no one seemed to go home. i think the most revealing thing that i can say is that i don't want this whole experience to end and maybe that's why people love it so it is just pure magical escapism. long way that.
i didn't expect my journey into bowl culture to bring me this far but it had been a fantastic adventure i'm to my surprise i actually don't think i'll be hiking up my dancing shoes anytime soon. we might be two hundred years on from the days of war and peace but there is still pools being held both here and the broads you can imagine even the touch of a stove of the light to attack. the russian dawns tradition is alive and thriving my think. is to tolstoy would have been.
deadly rivals some decades. if good fifteen thousand people killing each other in any other country there would be diplomats there with mediators. self-imposed out costs from society i will content myself chemical attack my brother understand my contact immediately caught going to basically attack the columns of my anger and my frustration. that. well into the shadows. two of the most violent gangs in us history. is just all modeled kill or be killed with colors matching the national flag.
but this country uses violence when it reaches and then it legitimizes the violence they all made in america on the odyssey. divine power in action activate the sacraments. i am just so we need these we are under the control of those governing us before at the service of a space mafia i found on that date the magnetic field of the sun will.
tend to create the support that the stuff. after the second coming it will be a futile place it will receive its glory it will be a renewed world and it'll be a beautiful place. full of the best. little stuff the ammunition. good business for us it's kind of like being a doctor you know there's a disaster businesses. better unfortunately. the government no longer represents the people. the people or going to take stuff from.
