Technique Books

The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) has published a technique book for each of the Latin as well as the Standard dances.  Between them, the ten books provide a practical introduction to the technique in Latin and Standard for dancers at all levels: from students to professionals - and on to teachers or trainers.

The books explain all facets of the WDSF technique, transmit a wealth of knowledge and create the solid base for the continued development of DanceSport. Comprehensive and up-to-date, they go much beyond the fundamentals and expand on topic such as body techniques.

This is what some of the most renowned trainers and adjudicators in DanceSport had to say about the books.

"Congratulations to the authors for producing a first class presentation of the Standard and Latin dances. This tremendous amount of work over many years has been edited and presented beautifully and is a beautiful 'first step' in analysing and describing modern DanceSport." Peter Maxwell - World Champion, Coach and Adjudicator

"The authors have treated all existing material with great respect and sensitivity - and they have still managed to present us with a more detailed explanation. These new books will surely be of enormous importance to the development of future teachers, adjudicators and competitors." Geir Bakke - World Champion, Coach and Adjudicator
