A single choreography DVD with veilwork

"My bellydance group loves Amira. We're middle-aged, thick in the waist, and easily threatened by Fonda-esque-aerobic-teacher-style bellydance DVDs. Although Amira has an incredible physique, she doesn't threaten us at all. She always makes a point of telling us to enjoy and be happy when we dance. We love her accent, and how comfortable she is with her femininity -- something the rest of us are all striving to accomplish in ourselves. While we collectively own just about all of her DVDs and VHSs, we truly enjoy this one's slow pace and careful attention to putting together a "veil-focused" choreography.
Our only criticisms are first, that it cannot be played on the laptop computer that we use at the dance studio (because of the format,) and second, that there's some floorwork involved that is not only ill-advised for those of us with questionable knees and backs, but also the hip undulations have been compared by one of our group to a "baited fish on a hook." Perhaps it's menopause that makes us view it that way instead of something sexy and enticing. In any case, it does not lessen the enjoyment of learning how to properly drape and tuck a veil, untuck, and work with it in a confined space, (like in a crowded dance studio.)
Amira has plenty of heart-thumping DVDs for twenty-somethings questing buns of steel. This DVD would not be for them. For you older survivors battling the bulges, this is down-through-the-ages feminine fun. Welcome to World of Bellydance!"
