The Art of Ballroom Dance.
Fallon, Dennis J.; Kuchenmeister, Sue Ann
This book is intended for both students and teachers of ballroom dance. It begins with detailed descriptions of the fundamentals of ballroom dance and systematically builds to complex dance routines. In each chapter, devoted to a selected American or Latin American dance, the basic steps of the dance are presented first followed by recommended step combinations for beginners. Advanced steps are introduced next, and suggested dance combinations for advanced beginners conclude each chapter. For intricate steps, sequential photographs accompany the text. To further assist instruction, each step is presented with three types of verbal cues: (1) the step cue to indicate the direction of movement; (2) the rhythmic cue to provide the tempo for each step; and (3) the foot cue to tell the dancer which foot to use. Dances included are the fox-trot, the swing, the waltz, the cha-cha-, the rumba, the samba, the tango, and the polka. A bibliography is appended. (MM)
