    • Wilmington, DE 5 Stars

      This is the most complete, thorough, and precise ballroom dance book I have ever read. I have been teaching ballroom dancing 25 plus years and thought I knew everything. I was wrong. I wish this book was around when I first started teaching. It would have saved me a whole lot of time and money. This is an absolute must if you are just starting out in the dance business or if you have been teaching for many years like myself. I have personally read the book twice and will certainly read it again. Thank you Diane for putting together such a treasure for all of us dance teachers to rely on for guidance.

      Although Diane Jarmolow's book is titled Teach Like A Pro, I feel it is actually an invaluable resource for any level of ballroom dance enthusiast.

      Whether you are a beginner exploring your first steps, a new teacher or a top professional instructor, I guarantee you will find information in the book that will help you become a better dancer, teacher, or Studio owner.

      Exceptionally well written, easy to read and understand, the comprehensive scope of the information made available in Teach Like A Pro makes it the most complete book on Ballroom dancing I have come across to date. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

      P.S. Buy your own copy because I am not going to be lending you mine :)
