All the Latest Steps

Hello everyone. It has been a hectic week of moving into a new place and starting classes. I have school some days for more than 12 hours straight so I expect to be more tired than usual for the next few months. This means I will likely also have less time for blogging. But nevertheless, based on several requests, I have decided to start a new series of posts based on the book "All the Latest Steps". It was published in the mid-1920's and contains instructions for various dances.

Over the next few months I will be posting the instructions to the dances (some contain diagrams, and some unfortunately do not) and some historical footage of the dance (if I can find any). I'm planning to post once a week, but this may be changed to every two weeks if school gets too busy. (Don't worry, I will still be doing my normal posts as well.)

So dust off your dancing shoes and get ready to learn the "latest steps". Here is some Fred and Ginger to get you in the mood!
