The Sound of Music features a scene where the protagonists Maria and Captain von Trapp dance a Ländler.
The Ländler is a folk dance in 3/4 time which was popular in Austria, south Germany, German Switzerland, and Slovenia at the end of the 18th century.
The choreography for the Ländler (in the film) strictly followed the traditional Austrian folk dance.
