This book illuminates the history of popular dance, one of the most influential and widespread leisure practices in early twentieth-century Britain. It focuses in particular on the relationship between dancing and national identity construction, in a period when Britain participated in increasingly global markets of popular cultural production, consumption, and exchange.
