25 Dec 2009 - from Linda B

A how-to-dance manual that also has enough interesting text and lovely pictures to make worthwhile and fun reading. Comes complete with a DVD - I don't think we're ready for that quite yet but I'm going to offer to lend it to a friend who needs to be able to dance decently at her wedding! Lovely entertaining read for a wet and windy Bank Holiday Monday! ( )

As well as the quirky humour that we haveseen on television, this book demonstrates Anton Du Beke's enthusuiasm for the history of dance and the clarity of his thinking. No book can substitute for a teacher even when it is accompanied by a DVD but this is interesting read for a novice or an enthusiast. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In his first book, Anton Du Beke shares his passion for ballroom dancing. Far more than just the basic steps, it is about the feeling of getting movements perfect, of building a relationship with your partner, of creating an emotional connection with the dances and of beautiful costumes too. For each of the 5 ballroom dances - from the waltz to the foxtrot - and of the 5 latin dances - from the jive to the cha cha - Anton Du Beke describes its origins and story, how to approach it and some tips and techniques, as well as showing the movements in intricate detail. A fantastic free DVD accompanies the book's step-by-step instructions; Anton will take you step-by-step through the dances so that you truly can learn from the master. 'Every woman in the world should have half an hour with Anton Du Beke' (Lesley Garrett). Now you can too. This title comes with a foreword by Len Goodman.… (more)
