Waltzing in Vienna Show

Rick Steves has a YouTube video showing people in an audience watching couples waltzing. I will be in Vienna in September and was wondering where you can find tickets to see such a show? It looked really nice to see the waltzing close up and personal. Has anyone gone to such a show where you can see couples waltzing. I don't want to waltz or join a dance class, just see a show. Thank you.

The location in the video is the Kursalon. Here is the link:

As you can probably tell from the video, performances in this location are entirely for tourists. If you want to see real Viennese waltzing, you have to come during the ball season and attend a ball, which is in January/February.

Thank you for the link. Yes, I understand that this is a tourist type of show, but it looks like it would be very nice. I think the balls would be wonderful, but I will not be attending the balls but will be in Vienna in September, I thought this would be fun to see.
