About this Item

Title

  • Handbook of ball-room dancing,

Summary

  • This manual is designed as a self-teacher for those who cannot or, according to the author, are unwilling to attend dance classes. Additionally, Cree declares the most popular dances to be the Lame Duck Valse, valse, one step, foxtrot, and lancers. Although he includes instructions for a Three Step or Straight Jazz, and a Tango Valse, the manual does not reflect dances that were being performed during the late teens.
