Editorial Reviews


"Written as a straightforward chronology of ballroom dance, the book is well researched and entertaining to read. Malnig pays special attention to the music that helped animate this form of popular entertainment. Undergraduate: graduate: faculty." - Choice

"This is a fascinating account of one author's view of the beginnings of exhibition ballroom dance shortly after the turn of the century and her account of its ups and downs through the ensuing years up to the present." - Dance Teacher Now

"Dancing Till Dawn is undoubtedly a solid point of departure for future research in this fascinating field of dance as it is found at the interstices of the popular and the theatrical." - Dance Research Journal


Dancing Till Dawn fills a gap long apparent on the shelves of the dance libraries of America. Thanks to Julie Malnig we now have a proper history. (Marge Champion)

This book about ballroom dance is also a book about American social history. Whether polished for the stage or performed in the dance hall, ballroom dancing distills crucial information in a gorgeous time capsule of motion. . . . Now, for the first time, Julie Malnig has gathered together the facts about this curious and wonderful world of dance. Dancing Till Dawn not only sheds light on our past, it provides a strong cornerstone for future research. (Sally Sommer)
