You Asked Aunt Rocky: Answers & Advice About Raqs Sharqi and Raqs Shaabi (Perfect Paperback) is the definitive book that gives Raqs Sharqi/ Middle Eastern dance the respect it deserves as
a beautiful art form blending technique with culture.
Morocco has spent a lifetime performing,recording and educating the dance world about Raqs Sharqi.She is known throughout the world for her dance instruction as well as her wealth of information about the history of this dance.
“You Asked Aunt Rocky” has been a much anticipated book by students of Middle Eastern history as well as dance.I have read and re-read this book. Morocco’s love of the dance shines through with a passionate plea to treasure this dance with an authenticity that rejects any attempt to embellish it with post-modern ideas of creativity.
