Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sumptuous color photography combined with comprehensive and detailed easy-to-follow instructions demonstrate a unique way for women to get and keep fit while expressing their sensuality through Belly Dancing. Would-be dancers who have longed to learn the intricacies of this ancient dance form can now experience the pleasure of learning and mastering all the basic steps, putting together an individualized routine and adding magic to their performance with veils, swords, and the tiny finger cymbals known as zills . Each complex movement of the body is painstakingly broken down into concise step-by-step directions that are easy to follow. Perfect for the basic beginner, the instructions also offer alternatives and additions to the movements to accommodate a dancer’s growing skill. The lavish sequence of images captures each delicately curved hip and splayed finger; the arch of a foot and the arc of a backbend; and the careful placement of a leg. You can practically see the stomach rippling sinuously, the hips shimmying wildly, and the hair whipping around as the dancer twirls.

Awe-inspiring color photography and complete instructions show women how to keep fit and express their sensuality through belly dancing. Would-be dancers who have longed to learn the intricacies of this ancient form can now experience the pleasure of mastering all the basic steps, putting together an individualized routine, and adding magic to their performance with props such as veils, swords, and the tiny finger cymbals known as zills. No detail of the dance escapes the camera's gaze: photos home in on delicately curved or splayed fingers; the arch of a foot and the arc of a backbend; and the careful placement of a leg. With a lavish sequence of images, you can practically see the stomach rippling sinuously, the shoulders shimmying, and the hair whipping around as the dancer twirls. .
