This book makes the case for Oriental dance not only as a beautiful dance, but also one that is soul-enriching, and spirit-healing–a legitimate mind-body practice that equals (and in some ways surpasses), yoga, tai-chi, sitting meditation, etc., in its effectiveness and power. This book is a love letter to the dance that has nourished me for forty years. It is a manifesto, the conclusions to which I have come over four decades of devotion to this dance. It is for those who want something deep and real. It is given as a beacon of light, welcoming dancers home to the soul of their beloved dance.

[one_third_last][service_box animation=”fadeInUp” title=”Communication Skills for On and Off the Stage Online Workshop” icon=”https://thebellydancebundle.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Terri-Product.png”]By Terri Allred

Dancers are constantly communicating on the stage. In improvisational dance, our steps are words, our cues are punctuation, and each dancer who leads the group forms sentences. Each sentence spoken by the lead dancer is woven with the sentences spoken by the next lead dancer to tell a story for the audience. Even in choreographed dance, the rules of communication are clear while on stage. Off the stage can be a different story…

[one_third][service_box animation=”fadeInUp” title=”Live Lecture Exclusive to Buyers” icon=”https://thebellydancebundle.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Nisaa-Product.png”]By Nisaa – Heather Ward

This lecture will be held live in early November for everyone who purchased the Bellydance Bundle. We’ll explore how developments in popular entertainment and performance space in Cairo impacted the evolution of belly dance and ultimately gave rise to what we now recognize as raqs sharqi. Most aficionados of Egyptian belly dance are aware of Badia Masabni and her famous night clubs, and without a doubt, Badia’s clubs occupy an important place in the history of raqs sharqi. However, Badia’s clubs were neither the first nor the only venues of their kind. We’ll pay special atention to the sala El Dorado, one of the better-documented entertainment halls from the pre-Badia Masabni era.
