About the Book
The Shape of a Hundred Hips offers an insider’s perspective into the world of belly dancing that is perceived as outwardly fascinating, but rarely understood. The book goes beyond the glitz factor of belly dance to challenge assumptions people may have about it as suggestive or exotic. Belly dance is how the author gained confidence and compassion for her lost sense of self.
The Shape of a Hundred Hips is a literary memoir that promotes the idea that people can gain insight and take greater control of their lives through intentional movement and artistic connection.
