Subject: I have found a DVD that I think you would enjoy
Needed more targeted moves for the gluts

"First the actual workout of this DVD is only about 36 minutes long not 47 mins. as labeled on the package. The warmup lasts for about 15 minutes plus there's about a 3 min. cooldown. So I had how much time left to do what? Not much I found. There were a few moves that did target the gluts, but I found that most of the moves did not do much for the gluts like 'pelvic locks' for example. There was potential in the last combo which involved a shimmy on the toes while traveling a few steps at an angle.
I'm curious as to why we were instructed to do a hip drop by 'moving our knees up and down' instead of by powering the drops with the gluts. This is called 'belly booty' after all! I much prefer the two 'legs and butt' segments Rania has on her 'Bellydance Personal Trainer' dvd. Also Suhaila has a great bellydance buns workout dvd which is a little intermediate.
What I did like about this DVD is that Rania doesn't do a voiceover which made her seem much more relaxed than in her early dvds. However there were a few mistakes made in Belly Booty that probably wouldn't have been made if it included a voiceover. I'll use this dvd sometimes as a warmup or cooldown for more specific glut workouts.
