Teaching New Dancers is written for leaders who want to teach easy dances to people who have never danced or seldom dance. It is a collection of dances and a teaching plan specifically designed for the needs of schoolteachers, church youth ministers, recreation department personnel, camp leaders, recreation directors for retirement centers, camp councilors, etc.
