Basic Production for Belly Dance is a 144-page introduction and guide to basic production with emphasis on belly dance and belly dancers. I’ve gone to some lengths (I won’t say great lengths, greatness is reserved to the judgment of my audience) to make the book approachable, accessible and educational. I hope it blends my life’s experience in production work of various sorts with the last several years of belly dance show observation in a constructive and useful way. I hope I met my own goal – to create a guide to basic production – something to get people started producing good shows with the dance and dancers they love, even if they have no production background at all. I also hope I’ve managed to avoid writing a textbook. Finally, I hope you�ll forgive my sense of humor buried in these pages. You can buy it here.

Thanks for visiting… and best wishes for all your production efforts!
