Buy for $6.99 Excerpt

This vintage book contains a classic guide to ice skating, concentrating on dancing and especially the waltz. The waltz is a ballroom and folk dance of German origins usually in triple time and performed primarily in closed position. This volume looks at the origin of the ice dancing, as well as popular music choices, useful information and diagrams, instructions on specific techniques, and much more. “Dancing on Ice” is highly recommended for those with an interest in ice skating and dancing, and it would make for a charming addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Valsing on the Ice”, “Origin and Description of the Skating Valse”, “The Change of Rotation”, “Hints and Aids to Proficiency”, “Explanatory Notes on the Points of Valsing Form”, “The Black Double Wave”, “Rules and Regulations for Competition in Valsing on Ice”, “A Few Valses Suitable for the Ice”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
