Start with a healthy aerobic workout. Add the fun of dancing. Spice things up with exotic music, the twirl of silk, and the rhythmic clapping of finger cymbals. Top it off with a path to rediscovering one's feminine nature and creative spirit, and you have Belly Dancing for Fitness.

Many women find belly dancing the most enjoyable way to get in shape while simultaneously getting in touch with their bodies and tapping their spirituality. Belly Dancing for Fitness shows how this alternative dance-exercise can be as easy and fulfilling as yoga. Belly dancing includes floor gymnastics, back bends, poses, and stretches. The book also outlines how to synchronize one's breathing and coordinate the mind and body.

Drawing from her years of experience as a world-famous teacher and performer, the author discusses the history and culture of belly dancing. She then carefully leads the reader through each skill level of this increasingly popular exercise art form.

This is the best instructional belly dance book I've found so far. Everything is broken down very simply and is explained in terms which are easy to understand. Photos accompany the explanation of each move and are really helpful in putting the movement into practice.

While the book does in no means do the job of a live teacher, I've found it to be a great way to revise and drill in between classes. Considering the amount of overdue fees I've racked up at the library every time I've borrowed this book, I'd say it's definitely worth purchasing.

One of the better belly dance instructions books I have seen. Its major downfall is that the photos are in black and white, but it is a reasonable price and if you dont mind the lesser quality of photo then you cant go wrong with this book. Easy to follow instructions laid out nicely under the photos. Each move is illustrated in stages. The floor work section is excellent. The photo quality is not an issue for me, as the quality of the instructions is so high. Highly recommend this book.
