From the Publisher:

Long one of the most popular activities in the world, dancing brings pleasure to millions as well as the benefits of physical and mental relaxation, exercise, and social poise. If you haven't had the opportunity to learn, Victor Silvester's best-selling book provides all you need to know. Featuring dazzling photos of some of the world's greatest dancers, this is a definitive handbook, complete with notes, diagrams, and steps for every dance. The four classics—Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, and Tango—are all covered, as are the standard Latin-American dances—Rumba, Samba, Cha-Cha- Cha, Paso Doble—as well as Jive, Rock ' n' Roll, and Disco dancing. Invaluable for beginners, advanced students, and teachers alike, this classic work shows the way to a world of enjoyment that will last a lifetime.

About the Author:

Victor Silvester is the man who put the 'slow, slow, quick, quick, slow' into ballroom dancing. He won the World's Professional Dancing Championship in 1922 and went on to build an unrivalled reputation as a demonstrator and teacher of dance. The recordings that he made, with his famous orchestra, have sold in excess of 75 million. Awarded the OBE for services to Ballroom Dancing, Victor Silvester was also President of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance. He died in 1978.
