    Perhaps, but I suspect there is more than a little bit of image manipulation going on there, and in her Shake It Off video.

    Here's a waltz by Sir Elton John, The New Fever Waltz, from his latest album, The Diving Board, released 2013. It's more of an American waltz, but you'd still probably want to slow it down a bit.

    Here are a couple from Harry Connick, Jr.'s latest album, Every Man Should Know:
    2013


    - Time to Go (Waltz)
    - One Fine Thing (Foxtrot)

    The title track is a waltz, too, although a bit on the fast side.

    I'd be curious to see if your college kids could handle doing a quickstep to Problem by Ariana Granda and Iggy Azalea on the My Everything album. It was released in April 2014.

    Most of my Viennese Waltzes are "old", but I did find one released in the last two years (Dec. 2012), Just a Fool by Christina Aguilera on her Lotus album.
