Dance Diaries #1

In this book about ballroom dancing by Catherine “Katie” Harrison, a.k.a. The Girl with the Tree Tattoo, she discusses her experiences, including her introduction to it in preparation for a marriage. She emphasizes benefits such as confidence and posture, and weighs the pros and cons of group and private lessons, not to mention the purpose of practice parties and social dances, not to mention etiquette. She spends a few sections talking about the relationship between the ballroom dancing amateur and professional, indicates how to find the right instructor, and concludes by mentioning when enough is enough. This reader could somewhat relate to the author since he has a niece participating in ballroom dancing, and would recommend this read to dancers, those who aspire to dance, and dancer families.
