Dancer Alia Thabit will be in New Orleans with her new book, «Midnight at the Crossroads, Has Bellydance Sold its Soul?»
Come to Crescent Lotus, hear her speak and get a signed copy of the book directly from the author.
There is a lot more to this dance than meets the eye. And those less visible elements are the most vital and rewarding--for the dancers, the audience, and the world.
Key elements of Alia's mission have always been to
Awaken people to their own beauty and power;
Enable them to express their unique individuality through art;
Bring honor and appreciation to Oriental dance;
Enjoy a life of creativity, adventure, mystery, abundance, and ease;
Cultivate a radiant oasis of warmth and delight.
This book does all that. It is a love letter to the dance that has nourished her for 45 years. It is a how-to handbook for dancers and teachers so they can find their way in the big city of belly dance. It is a beacon of light welcoming dancers home to the soul of their beloved dance.
