Introduction to Guide

This research guide has been created for students, faculty and researchers who are interested in the subject of ballroom dancing.


There is an annotated bibliography section for both print and online resources. The print bibliography has annotated lists of bibliographies, dictionaries, an encyclopedia, a filmography, history, a periodical and a research guide. All of the print resources, with one exception, are focused on the general level of dance. However, within each of these resources, one can find specific information on ballroom and/or social dancing. The resources have been placed in alphabetical order by type. The online sources offer websites and special collections which can be of use to a researcher.

Use of Sources

A discussion follows each of the bibliographies and gives more detail as to how these sources can be used.


News has been added to this site to provide current information in the world of ballroom dance and dance research.
