You MUST know some belly dancing to do this video. It is NOT for the beginner. You have to know the bellydance moves before watching the video because they do not explain how to do them, and move quite quickly. I would say get this if you have had 6 months or more of bellydance lessons.
Fun and quick workout

"I have both Madonna Grimes workouts DVD's and fell in love with her 10 minute workouts. It was a great way to start my day, I was hoping that this tape included two new workouts alas they were the same, but with disapointment comes satisfaction. The other 10 minute workouts give me a chance to change my early morning workouts, and learn a workout that I never thought that I would learn and enjoy doing. Jayna's bellydance helps you to feel sexy and still enjoy the feeling you get from her low impact toning, also great moves you can use for other reasons. Rania's upper body is really fun, some of the steps are a little harder to do on carpet since you do this barefoot. Suhaila workout I am intimidated by. I have not been able to watch it long enough to complete it. I have a little trouble getting past the control that she has on her butt cheeks. She can contract them one at a time. Some mornings I get enough energy and do multiple workouts from this tape. They are really fun. This tape has a bonus YOGA, I had never tried YOGA and this gave me an opportunity to try it.
I highly recommeded this DVD/VHS. I love the 10 minute workouts. With this DVD/VHS there are no excuses you can always find 10 minutes in a day."
Ratng from true "beginner"

"I hadn't exercised (other than walking) in years until recently when I started a weight loss program, so am definitely a "beginner". The tape has 5 10-minute sessions on it, 3 of which are bellydancing, which sounds a lot easier than it actually is especially for someone who has a hard time concentrating on on their feet at the same time as other body parts. Here's my take on each individual segment:
Parts 1 and 5 - MaDonna: these basic cardio workouts are definitely my favourites. They are easy to follow, fun, and give your muscles a workout. A beginner can do these and learn all the exercises pretty quickly. For a 20 minute workout, do one after the other. Excellent.
Part 2 - Suhaila: This is NOT NOT NOT for beginners unless you have bellydancing experience. I felt this segment was more of a showcase for what Suhaila can do. How many "beginners" can move each of their buttocks separately?! Poor.
Part 3 - Jayna: Sinous, slower movements - good for flexibility and toning. More relaxing workout. Good.
Part 4 - Rania: This is mostly a chest workout, good for toning - she repeated the movements a number of times, but I find it very hard to move my feet while moving my chest. This may improve with practice. Fair."

"I purchased this DVD mainly for the Hip Hop sections. I was very disappointed to find out there is no Hip Hop dancing on this DVD. Madonna Grimes is the instructor for the Hip Hop section but it is basic aerobics and floor exercises."
