Dancing Made Easy - 1922

ImageI have made a lot of use of this book in my "Jazz Age Dancing" project. It is refreshingly clear and straight forward, and aims at the same beginner-to-advanced audience I seek. It also lays out in a very succinct form the general view of things ballroom at the beginning of the Jazz Age.

Note that the cover shown here is from the 1919 edition, but I link to the 1922 edition. I do this for no other reason than the 1919 one was ever so much prettier - an indication perhaps of changing tastes in the post-Great War era.
