"First, I must point out that the title of this is misleading. Let's blame the title-maker. However, the description on the workout DVD cover is honest in that it mentions the workout is bellydance-inspired and features some Bollywood & aerobic dance moves. This is accurate. Unfortunately those who gave it bad online reviews seemed really focused on the title & felt it would be a true bellydance workout. Then, again there's very little bellydancing in the clip. Thus, many were disappointed when it wasn't solid bellydancing. So, I'm reviewing this based on the descriptions (more important than a title) and my own experience. First, my background to give you some perspective. I am at the advanced level in my fitness, am quite fit, can handle heavy weights, do high impact work regularly & swing a 20 lb kettle bell. I bought this specifically for those days when I need a less intense, low impact workout or a rest day. This was perfect. The music is great, Kili's instruction is flawless (to me), the creativity was up there and the combos seemed to get harder in intensity. In fact, while working out in my chilly living room, my sports bra & undies were soaked. I was stunned. My wish is that folks really pay attn to the descriptions & the clip instead of the title. If you're looking for an Eastern-inspired workout, this one is good. I actually like this one better than the other pure bellydance fitness and Bollywood DVDs I've had and given away. The only thing I would've loved to have seen is if Kili had woven all 3 combos together at the end & ran through them a couple of times. That would've been an exercise for the mind! This workout served its purpose with me.

"I was able to get a copy of this early & I have to say it is by far one of the worst workouts I've got in my collection. The title of this is very misleading. There is nothing to very little belly dance about it. Yes, the back cover says it is a fusion of bollywood style dancing & bellydance, but in truth it is all bollywood with maybe a few undulations thrown in. It's a very boring routine to boot. I wouldn't even rate it at a beginner level for intensity. It's not very challenging & is not likely to get your heartrate up. The back cover specifically says this is a fun workout. I kept wondering when the fun would begin. Ugh. I gave this 2 stars, 1 star for each good thing to mention. The music is good. Very original compared to many other fitness DVDs on the market. The instructor is really good. I like her personality & she cues very well. It's unfortunate that she appeared in such a bad workout. If you like bollywood dancing & don't want to do much of a workout this is for you. If you want to actually make use of your workout time, and you want a bellydance workout that is ACTUALLY a bellydance workout or a true fusion of bellydance & bollywood, this is one to avoid."
I personally enjoy this :->

"This is a perfectly timed workout (45 minutes all up) and it really gets your heart rate up. It's different to any other workout I own because it's a mix of belly dancing and Bollywood style dance. There is your basic ponies and grapvines, to sunbursts and shimmies. It's the first workout I've seen by this instructor, Kili Marti, but I found her to be friendly, and gave good instruction. The music is also what gives it perfect 'atmosphere' because it's Middle-Eastern so you feel very intune to the moves.
This isn't the kind of workout you'd want to solely rely on for big weight-loss, but it's fun and does get your heart rate up, so it's going to help you get fit and you'll definately have fun doing it."
Great light workout!! Lots of fun!!!

"I love this workout. This is not a hardcore workout like Taebo, Firm or Cathe. It is what it is.
Very well put together light workout. Great for those just starting out, or just getting back into workout from illness.
Very low impact & fun. Great for the days you don't want to take it all the way. If you liked the Hip Hop Dance of the inches I think you will like this one also.
