Summary

This manual suggests that anyone can learn to dance without the aid of a teacher. After providing a short discussion on organizing balls, appropriate dress, and etiquette, the book focuses on the popular ballroom dances of the era--quadrilles, polka, schottisch, polka mazurka, and varsoviana. This "do it yourself" mentality was common during the late nineteenth century. This particular dance manual was reissued in 1876 under the title: Offenbach's dancing without a master.
