This is truly an elegant collection of dances. Just look at
some of the section headings: No Problem Contras, Nice
and Easy Contras, Traditional Contras, Contemporary
Contras, New England Squares, Singing Quadrilles,
Lancers and Heritage Dances. Of major importance is the
inclusion of the music for 50 dance tunes chosen by Ralph
Page to be especially suitable for the dances in the book,
which will be a boon for aspiring or accomplished dance
musicians everywhere. This collection is a major
contribution to American dance literature.
