Oriental Belly Dance based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Oriental dance, also known to the English-speaking people as "belly dance", is widely studied throughout the globe on different levels. Up until this book, the dance has been studied and written about primarily by the way of Egypt. Kemal Ozdemir does a superb job in introducing the dance to the public through the Turkish point of view, also claiming its origins as his country's own. So little is known about Turkish Oriental dance because of the lack of textbooks available on the subject that this book is surprisingly and pleasantly informative. Although it is a small volume, it is a priceless collection to the most avid belly dancer's library for it offers another perspective to the origins, history, and performance of this ancient dance.
