69th Vienna Medical Doctors' Ball: "Dancing is Medicine"

„Dancing is Medicine“ –  This year’s motto is obviously dedicated to our dancing doctors, who fill every year anew the rooms of the Imperial Palace during the “Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball”. „Dancing is Medicine“ –  This year’s motto is obviously dedicated to our dancing doctors, who fill every year anew the rooms of the Imperial Palace during the “Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball”. Dancing is older than historical documents about human culture. Dancing is life and movement. Dancing is good for your health. It can minimise the risk of dementia and studies have shown that it has a kind of pharmacological effect. This sport does not differ between gender and generations, it demands motor activity, attention as well as long-term and short-term memory and is good for your endurance. To move with music is relaxing and a benefit for your soul. Another benefit is the training of the pelvic muscles when dancing the paso doble or samba or of the entire supporting apparatus in case of the waltz. Dancing rock’n’roll for one hour burns as many calories as running one hour and one hour of waltz is equal to one hour of squash.

Enjoy along with the “Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball” a musical and historical trip through the Viennese medicine and let yourself be embraced by the world of the „dancing doctors“ – worth remembering melodies to dance and sing along wait for you as well as a programme and designer highlights without equal match.
