Here is The New Danse Orientale manual. Jamila Salimpour's manual has been revised and expanded to include more steps and finger cymbal patterns. Over 90 pages of content. A fabulous resource for all dancers. This is required supplement for students of the Jamila Salimpour Belly Dance format.
The manual coordinates with, but contains considerably more information, than the Archive Series Volumes 1-4 that were filmed in the early 80s and available on VHS and later DVD; now available through online classes (visit the PPV section and search Jamila format).
