Paperback of the week: Betty White's Teen-age Dance Book
Betty White's Teenage Dance Book (Permabook, 1959) is in the spotlight this week for no other reason than that I feel like throwing a teen-age dance party to celebrate the pleasing outcome of the election this week. Betty White and all the Golden Girls would totally be welcome, though note that the Betty White who penned this "gay and streamlined guide to modern dancing" is not the rascally octogenarian actress we all know and love but a "trained dancer and teacher of dancing" circa 1952. Kick out the jams, all you Betties!
