Don'ts for Dancers

38 pages24 minutes


Following hot on the heels of the best-selling Don'ts for Husbands, Don'ts for Wives and Don'ts for Golfers
this facsimile copy of the original edition contains everything you
ever needed to know, from what to wear at a fancy dress party to how to
hold your partner during a slow dance.

Advice we should all follow:

"Don't be a martyr to your feet"

"Don't dance with bent knees. Bent knees suggest an ancient cab-horse
on its last pathetic stagger or a performing chimpanzee gyrating around
its keeper"

"Don't disguise yourself as a "Lohengrin" if you happen to be short and
stout. This sort of thing is excusable only in an operatic tenor"

"Don't straddle"

"Don't, Miss Shingled, Bingled or Bobbed, please don't comb your
hair in public! It is a habit that is fast gaining ground but it is a
deplorable habit. A few minutes reflection will, I am sure, convert you
to the masculine point of view - it is a disgusting habit"
