Dancing is such a popular recreation that there seems little need for a book advocating it, unless it be a plea for its rational use. This is what Dr. Gulick has made. He explains the inborn appreciation of rhythm, and his contribution ought to help to remove some of the evils which have been grafted on to this form of recreation. The folk dances which mean so much in European life and which are being revived throughout the United States with wholesome effect are explained and portrayed, adding greatly to the interest of the book.
