As part of the production Confessions of a Belly Dancer, Raksanna published 5 books which chronicled the stories of the many dancers she met in her travels around the world.
The primary goal of Confessions of a Belly Dancer© is to give a voice to belly dancers around the world and their first-hand experience of the changing, transformational power of the dance. It seeks to elevate the art form and the artists who create beauty through their movements and interpretation of the music. It aims to preserve and share the collective experiences and cultural anthropology of Oriental dancers. The compilation of vignettes exposes what is underneath the striking costumes, the mesmerizing music and the glitter of the stage … shining a bright light on the heart of the woman.
All five books, or any book for each show location, can be purchased here!
