Excellent Dance DVD

"This DVD features performances of Flamenco and Middle Eastern dance. Sometimes the dancers dance separately and sometimes to the same music, which gives you a nice idea of how the different dance genres interpret the same music. There are two Flamenco dancers who dance seperately and have a "skirtfight". There are three Middle Eastern dancers: Cory Zamora, who put out this DVD, a plus-sized female dancer and a male dancer. The Middle Eastern dancers each have at least two solos and dance together on both an indoor stage and an outdoor stage. There's a cane dance and a sword dance. All the dancers are excellent. I really love this DVD for the variety it shows in dance genres, in dance styles, in settings and in the dancers themselves. I highly recommend it for that purpose."
Do not buy this DVD!!!!!

"I would rate this as zero stars but Amazon do not give this as an option. There is little or no Flamenco or Bellydance on this very low production value piece. The dancing of either style is very limited with some OK moves in the flamenco and one adequet bellydancer. I know and love both these dance styles and am angry that there are those who put themselves forward as dancers and charge for productions such as this."
Amateur, Mediocre Flamenco Dancing

"I only got through the first 15 minutes of the DVD so i can't speak for the rest. I don't know much about Bellydancing but I have studied Flamenco and have seen plenty of professional Flamenco productions on film. I feel cheated by this DVD. I thought it was going to be a professional production but it looks to me like some amateur dancers got together and decided to make a videa. At least the Flamenco dancing is mediocre. If you're looking for quality dancing, you're not going to find it here."
