For some strange reason this book is listed on Amazon.co.uk as being by Delilah Flynn, it is actually written by Tamalyn Dallal. I realise that one bellydancer is very much like another to a non-enthusiast but anyone in the know will realise this makes quite a difference! I've just received Belly Dancing for Fitness and I'm very pleased with it. I've been dancing for 10 years and I'm always on the look out for new perspectives to teach to my small group of students. Dallal obviously has a great affinity with her subject and writes with humour. I did feel some of the instructions to the moves were very brief and as the author states, the book needs to be backed up with real lessons. The photos were excellent and there was a logical way of grouping the moves. I think this book will inspire the beginner and provide the more experienced dancer with a valuable resource book.
