These gorgeous ladies have performed all over the world, and now their images are presented here for your coloring pleasure. Note: Of course you cannot color the Kindle version. Buy this book if you want to get the drawings without worrying about coloring. All pages are printed on one side to make your coloring easy. If you prefer to use pens or markers, place a sheet of plain paper between the pages to prevent the ink from bleeding through. From the Author You might be wondering, why create a series of belly dancer coloring books? Well, it's an interesting story. In 2005, my wife passed away. I was in grief, as you can imagine. We were married for 12 1/2 years and she was the love of my life. I started photographing renaissance faires as a way to handle the grief and depression, and one day I sat down in front of a stage to photograph belly dancers. The troupe was called Oojahm and was run by a dancer named Marjhani. I loved the dance. The colors, aesthetics, movement and beauty all helped me overcome the grief. I met all of the dancers, and we all became friends. I wound up photographing most of the shows performed by Oojahm. Later, I ran into more and more dancers, and before long was photographing two, three and even a dozen shows a week. I gained hundreds of new friends in the dance community, and I value all of those friendships greatly. I photographed well over 1,200 events and did countless shoots for individual dancers. Also, I produced over a dozen events myself and sponsored half a dozen others. In 2013 my life changed and I moved to Florida. I left my job with Trader Joe's (early retirement) to start a new career as a professional author and ghostwriter. I decided to create this series of coloring books because these dancers are a wonderful group of ladies and their images are very colorful and appropriate for adult coloring books.I think people will enjoy coloring the pages and getting a look into this dance form. My goal is to present the beauty and passion of the belly dance community to the world.
