This book is a must for anyone learning the art of Ballroom dancing, whether just starting out on their journey or for the more advanced dancer.
There is not only extremely clear explanations with fantastic detail for the correct technique of dance but also included is how to achieve this technique by showing the muscles, bones etc in collaboration with the fundamentals of dance.
To write a book like this shows that the authors have an immense depth of knowledge, dedication and understanding of every component required to dance.
Each ballroom dance has its own chapter explaining about the dance to set the atmosphere and then the first steps of learning to dance right through to 'championship level" in technique.
Another very important element is music and this book not only mentions it but explains It, showing beats and timing of each of the 5 ballroom dances.
I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to read such a fabulous book to help and aid in the learning to ballroom dance.
As the title says it is the essential guide and I use it as my ballroom bible. Thank you Janet and Malcolm
