Description

"Shu-Ju Wang: ""A sentimental prayer poem for belly dancers, this book captures the essence of belly dance through word play and rhythmic patter that mimics the dance itself."" Text (E through H): Enchant, with the intricate movements of your Feet, gliding, stepping to the beat of the drum. Grace, with sweeps of your arms, hems of your skirts, your Hands, beckoning, drawing them to your kingdom. http://www.vampandtramp.com/finepress/w/shu-ju-wang.html"
