Beginning Ballroom: Why's, Do's, Don'ts, and Shoes is categorized under Performing Arts / Dance / Reference, and is a five-part book that deals with matters concerning current ballroom dance students of all levels. Part I of Beginning Ballroom deals with ballroom etiquette, Part II explores the feel of the ballroom dances and the differences among them, Part III delves into how to get the most out of one's ballroom dance lessons, Part IV is an easy to reference "appendicized info" section, and Part V is a frequently asked questions section. Beginning Ballroom also includes multiple review sections and an answer section, which may be employed either by eager and enterprising dance students as self-checks or by ballroom dance instructors as early homework assignments.
Beginning Ballroom does not endorse any one particular dance school, dance studio, or dance method, and does not attempt to teach a single step (though a generic "Basic Step Guide" is included); rather Beginning Ballroom focuses on the ballroom culture, the history of the ballroom dances, how ballroom dance competitions work, practical advice for wedding couples, and the differences between the major ballroom dance styles - thereby, leaving the teaching of the ballroom dance steps to the individual ballroom dance instructors.
Beginning Ballroom: Why's, Do's, Don'ts, and Shoes is clearly meant to serve as an accompaniment to ballroom dance lessons and not as a replacement for them, so ballroom dance students and dance teachers alike may have a safe, non-competitive ballroom book to reference for off-the-lesson ballroom dance information.
