This Ballroom Partner Dance Handbook will guide you from complete beginner all the way to popular social dancer in foxtrot, quickstep and waltz. A unique, practical approach means you can quickly learn how to navigate a crowded dance floor, interpret the music with a variety of moves, improvise and enjoy dancing with your partner. If you are a teacher it also has detailed teaching advice and lesson plans.

A companion set of 25 video lessons on YouTube correspond to the 25 lesson-style chapters of this book. The videos show you what the moves look like meaning this book can focus on giving detailed learning advice.

The author, Dr Duncan James, has been a professional dance teacher for over two decades. From his third class he began recording his experiences to compile extensive written notes about the questions students asked him, the different ways people learn and which methods were the most effective. These notes are the basis of this book with an additional three years spent working with volunteers to do final testing to make this book and the companion videos effective for independent learning.

Duncan trained as a scientist and so is always experimenting in his teaching. This means many of the learning techniques in this book are unique and were developed for their brutal simplicity, efficiency and the incredible speed at which they enable you to learn.
