    Last Year's Guide

    Plenty of social dance sites can tell you where to get lessons or step out on a Friday night. After you've taken your first baby steps on the floor, you should try these on for size:

    JITTERBUZZ
    http://www.jitterbuzz.com
    This site focuses on lindy hop, the energetic style of swing la that Gap ad. Look for the album reviews, which rate recordings separately by how good they are musically and how suitable they are for dancing lindy. The reviews also break the albums down by style, such as jump blues, neoswing and big band.

    D.C. DANCENET
    http://www.dcdancenet.com
    A partners bulletin board brings together "leaders seeking followers" with "followers seeking leaders." Many posts are from beginners looking to practice new steps; others come from gold-level competitors looking for a partner with "stamina, conviction, balance, focus, elegance, rhythm, passion and attitude." The site spans styles from country-and-western to tango.

    SALSAWEB
    http://www.salsaweb.com
    Correspondents in big cities around the world report regularly about Latin dance happenings in the site's City Guides section. Here you can find such minutiae as which clubs in Paris have hardwood floors and where to find a salsa teacher in Cairo.
