Don'ts for Dancers
Following hot on the heels of the best-selling Don'ts for Husbands, Don'ts for Wives and Don'ts for Golfers this facsimile copy of the original edition contains everything you ever needed to know, from what to wear at a fancy dress party to how to hold your partner during a slow dance. Advice we should all follow: "Don't be a martyr to your feet" "Don't dance with bent knees. Bent knees suggest an ancient cab-horse on its last pathetic stagger or a performing chimpanzee gyrating around its keeper" "Don't disguise yourself as a "Lohengrin" if you happen to be short and stout. This sort of thing is excusable only in an operatic tenor" "Don't straddle" "Don't, Miss Shingled, Bingled or Bobbed, please don't comb your hair in public! It is a habit that is fast gaining ground but it is a deplorable habit. A few minutes reflection will, I am sure, convert you to the masculine point of view - it is a disgusting habit"
