It's a comprehensive, accessible and, most importantly, fun guide to ballroom dancing that will enable everyone to take the floor with ease and style.

There is also background information on the dances and their history, iconic images of dances and dancers from famous films (from Top Hat and High Society to Dirty Dancing and Moulin Rouge), and lists of contemporary songs that you can practise to. How about trying the waltz to Norah Jones' Come Away With Me, or the samba to The Gypsy Kings' Bamboleo?
