How To Dance through Time. Volume II: Dances of the Ragtime Era, 1910-1920. [Videotape].
This 59-minute VHS videotape is the second in a series of "How To Dance Through Time" videos. It provides 44 step combinations and how-to instructions to help viewers learn to dance the most popular dances of the early 20th century (the ragtime era), including: the wild animal dances (fox trot, horse trot, kangaroo hop, duck waddle, squirrel, chicken scratch, turkey trot, and grizzly bear); the elegant castle walk; the sensuous tango; the South American maxixe; and the nostalgic hesitation waltz. Professional dancers show the dances with authentic music, fashions, and steps of the era. Dances are introduced with historical information accompanied by original photographs and drawings. When individual step instructions are completed, easy-to-learn dance sequences are performed. This videotape is also available in DVD format. (SM)
