The purpose of this book is to attempt to get agreement from ballroom dance teachers in college and universities on content for a beginning class and standardise names for variations. The core curriculum agreed upon by CBDA is identified by an asterisk preceding the name of the variation in the contents page. Additional steps for each dance are included following the core. Suggested musical selections are listed at the end of each dance. Classics that have been popular through the years were chosen over current 'pop' songs.
