Required Reading for *Oriental* Dancers

5.0 out of 5 stars.

Morocco has forgotten more about Oriental dance than almost any living dancer will ever learn. In many cases, she is the last available first-hand source of information about the people and dances that shape what we (correctly or incorrectly) consider modern Oriental dance.

Fair warning: If you’re new to the dance, you’ll spend a lot of time flipping to the glossary. But Aunt Rocky is specific, clear and adamant about using correct terminology–so much so, that I, for one, no longer use the “b” word because of her influence.
