The Art of Disco Dancing.
This book offers a structured approach to disco dancing, and is designed for use in group instruction. After a brief historical look at popular dance in America, the basic fundamentals of disco steps are explored. Dance terms are explained in a glossary, and a section on music introduces notation, rhythm and meter, and time signatures. In the section on teaching disco dancing, the point is made that the ultimate objective should be to train confident and independent dancers. Teaching strategies and class organization tips are suggested. Four chapters treat couple dancing, line dancing, single dancing, and lifts and dips. Each begins with a general introduction and proceeds from basic to advanced steps. Photographs illustrate many of the steps. (FG)
