About Book

Book Description
It is not the purpose of this work to record the history of the dance from ancient to modern times, for that has already been accomplished.

Dancing, like every other art, has its childhood, its blossom time, its climax and its decay; but these periods are more uncertain than those of other arts, because of the lack of a generally accepted and efficient system of describing the accomplishments of the masters.

At the Convention of the American National Association of Master of Dancing held at Columbus, Ohio, June 12-17, 1905, the dedication of the original text of Grammar was accepted and the work adopted as the standard of authority. The resolution also strongly recommends the book as a text-book for students and teachers.

Friedrich Zorn himself expresses the belief that persons who contemplate teaching dancing will get more practical ideas regarding deportment from their experience as teachers than it would be possible to obtain from any book. Zorn’s Grammar of the Art of Dancing was orginally published under the direct patronage of the German Academy of the Art of Teaching Dancing, in Berlin, and the reader will find a very clear and concise history of the conception and execution of it in the Author’s preface within. The plan upon which the work has been written is made plain by the text itself.
