What a Dissapointment...

"I purchased this video a while ago going by what the DVD cover said and I really had no clue who Rania was. The workout does make you break a good sweat that's why I am giving it 2 stars, however it is very repetitive, therefore it gets boring, not to mention the dancers in the back who lack gracefulness. Rania did not impress me in her bonus performances. Belly dancing is a sensual dance, not a sexual one and she makes an erotic act out of it. She rates very low on her belly dancing skills and her instructions are annoying. Thank goodness there's an option to workout to the music without the narration."
I Love This Workout!

"This is a great workout. It's great for people who bellydance, but are not at performance level. I go to a class once a week and I've noticed my shimmies have improved. The moves are not that varied, but it's a great way to practice and it's a really great workout. You'll be drenched when you're done. It's worth a try."

"I have been belly dancing for less than a year now. I have the twins(Veena and Neena)dvd's and tapes and I really enjoy them. To keep an open mind to other styles that bellydancers have, I was searching for other workout/instructional dvd's. I saw Rania on the belly dance superstars tape. I was amazed at her belly rolls. I decided to purchase the cardio shimmy.But before I purchased it, I wanted to read the reviews to see what others thought of it. I read the reviews on Amazon and saw that there were alot of negative reviews and only one positve. I did the work out and I thought it was great. I think that if you want to pursue bellydancing further such as teaching or performing, that this is not only a good workout tape but, can help a begginer master shimmies and choo-choo's as well.Heck,I didn't even know the term choo-choo until I purchased the dvd. As for the music,I enjoyed it."

"Whoa, what a cardio workout! No matter what level you're at, you will break a sweat and learn how to shimmy. I used to have trouble shimmying, but Rania really works you up to it. You'll be shaking faster than you thought you could. It's tons of fun too. The techno drum solo bonus performance is awesome as well."
