Now in its eleventh edition, this classic and comprehensive handbook has been revised to bring it up to date with changes on the dance floor and in the rules of dance competitions.
The Quickstep, Waltz, Foxtrot, and Tango are all illustrated and described in great detail, as well as the versions of most dances approved for championships. Diagrams demonstrate every step from both the Leader’s and Follower’s perspectives, and a collection of photographs new to this edition celebrate the diverse range of dancers involved with ballroom.
This is the go-to book for dancers, competition judges, teachers, and anyone who needs to be at the forefront of today’s ballroom technique, from amateur practice to international championships.
