The information it contains is mostly okay, although rather superficial. The best part was the section with tips on how to do a performance. It offered good, intelligent advice, and that's why I decided it deserved more than one star.
In the section describing how to do some intermediate-level dance moves, the descriptions were okay, and the illustrations were appropriate, but I found myself thinking, "Wouldn't most people rather learn how to do movements from a video instead of from the printed word?"
I found it peculiar that the "culture lesson" section of the book focused on Saudi Arabia--a place where belly dancing is not performed in public AT ALL. It would have been much better if the author had written about either Egypt, Lebanon, or Turkey instead, where women actually DO perform this art form in public.
