"I'm giving this DVD a 4 because it says it's a workout & I really didn't "feel the burn". Its divided into thirds (standing, floorwork, and chair), with a bonus performance at the end. No warm up or cool down, but I honestly didn't need either one. I worked through all three back to back and didn't get the least bit sweaty.
I did feel sexy, relaxed, and generally happy with my body. Its zero impact (unless you fall off your shoes) and the movements are surprisingly elegant.
My complaints are that Lady M narrates as though she is leading a class, not a video (you have to reverse left and right to mirror her) and that sometimes the positions you should be in make it difficult to watch her. Neither of these are a deal breaker, though."
A lesson in feminintiy......

"As a dancer I continue to learn and keep an open mind to all types of fusion and dances around me. I love to experiment and I am glad I did so with this dvd. Floor work, chair dance, posing, sexy and feminine alluring moves, complement any dance. The leg show segments are awesome, as most of these moves are captivating. The posing segment I found to be a great lesson, it is so simple yet makes a bold statment about the person, or dancer as she presents herself to the audience. Overall, it appears that Lady M moves effortlessly, however, I was able to feel the work out in some areas, especially during the chair dance. If you are a beginner, you may want to warm up with yoga or stretches in flexability. Lady M. presented her program beautifully, as she is. A simple chair, the right music, and this dvd, beautifully transform you as you watch in amazment at what your body can do. Hopefully, I wont mistakenly break out some of these erotic moves during a belly dance performance, ha!I loved learning from this program and I am using these moves every chance I get, hopefully not just in front of a mirror!!!"
Fun introduction to exotic dance

"As a practitioner of bellydance fusion for the last few years I thought this DVD would give me a few sexy moves to add to my ever-growing dance vocabulary and it did exactly that. Lady M has a nice personality and demonstrates the moves well; she shows you how to do exotic and sexy chair moves and slinky floorwork. There is a little choreography and at the end the performance is demonstared by Lady M, showing how you might put it all together. I really enjoyed this DVD. I don't know if I'd recommend it to someone with NO dance experience, but if you've done some dance and want to learn some eye-catching exotic moves, you should check out this DVD. I would call it "moderately challenging".
One thing to note though, is that I felt the format of this DVD was more like an instructional dance DVD rather than a workout, but dont get me wrong you will get exercise with this DVD... I was sweating at the end!"
GREAT movie for beginneres!

"This movie is amazing! I wanted to know how to dance (as did my SO!) and this is a great beginner movie! It gives you basic moves that are sexy and smooth without looking like you're begging for tips-it's really focused on dancing for fun and for your partner rather than for money on a stage, which is nice! The moves I learned here gave me enough of a foundation I could start branching out and doing my own, and her dance at the end is great! HIGHLY recommended!"
