5.0 out of 5 stars
After waiting for this for years, I am so glad it is available. This book contains a wealth of information from someone who has really seen it and done it. Rocky has seen the development of the dance (often called “belly dance”) from its early beginnings in the States in the 1960s and seen its source in North Africa and the Middle East. And she writes what she has seen and heard – not myths or wishtory but facts.
Anyone who is serious about raqs sharqi, orientale or belly dance really should read this book. Once read it needs to stay on the shelf as a reference.
