In case you are wondering, dancing is the trick, according to dance entrepreneur of the mid-20th century, Arthur Murray. 4to. 23 by 15 cm. 16 pp., plus wrap covers. Many photos and illustrations. Short pieces on "Dont's for Dancers", "How Dancing Made Me More Popular", "All Modern Dancing is based on 5 fundamental steps", etc. Scarce, with the only copy of a booklet with this title by Murray, but not identical, listed on OCLC held by the Houghton. After getting a start selling mail order dance lessons, Arthur Murray (1895 - 1991) opened a chain of dance schools which at its peak numbered over 3,500 branches. The business is still around, but reduced to 220 branches. Murray, who immigrated to this country as an infant, received training from Vernon and Irene Castle, and much later, was the host with his wife of the very popular television program, "Arthur Murray's Dance Party", which ran throughout the 1950s. This pamphlet is mostly pitching Murray's mail order business. Light wear and some minimal soiling on the cover.
