From A Website...

For the past four years, I have operated the "Much Ado About Ballroom Dancing" website, offering advice on subjects of general interest to social dancers. This website has received over 50,000 visitors, and positive feedback from readers has encouraged me to write a social dancing handbook.

To A Book

I am pleased to announce the publication of Much Ado About Ballroom Dancing, an illustrated, large-format paperback that offers occasionally humorous pointers on

and much more.

Much Ado About Ballroom Dancing includes an etiquette guide, lists of songs for each dance, and links to numerous dance and music resources on the internet. This book is aimed at the beginning-to-intermediate social dancer, but also offers tips that may be of interest to more experienced dancers. It could serve as a companion text for social dance classes.
