Folk dances and square dances are a popular vogue, and here is an excellent how-to-do-it book, containing 44 dances which young people and their elders can work out for themselves, without trained instruction. The directions are concise, the music simple the diagrams easy to follow. The arrangement is according to types, of formation (circles, longways, straight lines, squares) and the groups are in order of difficulty. In the main the dances are American, but a few dances of other countries are included. Suggested programs, lists of records, books, etc. and the mixers and games all help make this a practical book for those who want to try for themselves. Even a ""caller"" will find the proper instructions -- and helpful hints.
