Literary critics often pursue analyses of music or painting and literature as 'sister arts', yet this is the first full-length study of the treatment of social dance in literature. A vital part of social life and courtship with its own symbolism, dance in the nineteenth century was a natural point of interest for novelists writing about these topics; and indeed ballroom scenes could themselves be used to further courtship narratives or illustrate other significant encounters. Including analyses of works by Jane Austen, W. M. Thackeray, George Eliot, and Anthony Trollope, as well as extensive material from nineteenth-century dance manuals, Cheryl A. Wilson shows how dance provided a vehicle through which writers could convey social commentary and cultural critique on issues such as gender, social mobility, and nationalism.

This book uncovers the mystery of getting started as a dance student or as a potential teacher. It goes step-by-step (pardon the pun), into everything about the process of signing up for lessons, surviving your first few visits, and even what to expect when it comes time for the 'big sell'. Then there's a section for those who are thinking they have what it takes to be a dance teacher. Details about getting trained, building up a student base, and even approaching the boss about going out on your own. Fantastic read! Very informative, even some humor thrown in.
