A superb masterpiece for the amateur to the novice dancer. 22 Sept. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Paul Bottomer's work comes with a generous display of figures and footwork illustrations, found lacking in many vintage dancing instructional materials sold .
Each new technique at the start of the chapter provides an introduction into the occasions when the technique(s) are used.
Typically , a British - style Ballroom dance instructional book worth its weight in gold- the beginner will not be intimidated by its step by step easy-to-follow instructions. This book will even captivate the more serious dance enthusiast.
However, be prepared to be reformed; the steps may differ somewhat ; most British styles start with the left foot as the first advance step in any dance. This should not deter anyone keen to start dancing in the confines of his home , and not go to the Ballroom.

An excellent guide to please any discriminating dancer ! 11 Sept. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Paul Bottomer's 'Quickstep' in the Dance Crazy series is one of the well-presented works in contemporary Ballroom Dancing. Figures with pictorial layout of footwork and introductions of each dance technique at the opening of each chapter gives the amateur to the serious dancer enthusiast a good understanding of when to use the variation.
A combination of writings, generous pictorial and dance steps illustration which many other instructional books do not strive to create; make this book a must on every serious ballroom enthusiast's bookshelf; Overall, it would be a difficult task trying to unravel its shortcomings.
