Belly Dance in a Box

Rachel Levin

If you're dying to bop like a Bollywood star or shake your hips like Shakira, but aren't sure yet how to make your stomach undulate like a belly dance pro, "The Art of Belly Dancing" might be the cheapest and most fun way to get your start. Published by Running Press (www.runningpress.com, $5.95), this little starter kit comes in a box no larger than a deck of cards. Inside you will find four finger cymbals and a set of decorative jewels for your bellybutton, which will soon be the star of the show. Also included is a small instructional booklet that covers everything a beginner needs to know, from warm-up stretches to basic moves to fashion to music recommendations. Sometimes good things really do come in small packages. Look for it at specialty stores or buy over the Internet.
