A perfect companion to Dolphinas introduction to bellydance. She takes the movements a step further and adds combinations to the workout.
As with her Intro DVD, this one focuses on the movements and repetition for a muscle burning workout.
The Goddess Salutation that begins this workout is a perfect way to begin and end every day and every workout.
Definatly not for the beginner!

"I bought this DVD looking for a challenge - which this workout certainly is. Unfortunatly, Dolphina spends too little time explaining the moves and too much time talking about the "goddess within". Although the setting of the workout is lovely, I find the bright white background and the glittering water a bit hard to look at while concentrating on the moves.I would only recommend this workout for those who are able to pick up new moves quickly! I am a intermediate level belly dancer and I have had trouble catching on to the moves. I find myself going over and over the scenes to catch the correct movement. More time could be spent explaining the mechanics of the move. That said, I was looking for something more challenging than the "Neena & Veena" workouts, and this workout fits the bill. Whether or not the moves carry over to my dance class remains to be seen!"
Beautiful and Fun

"This is a workout you WILL do, because it is fun. I would recommend using a mirror to be sure your body is moving properly. The only disapointments would be that she often talks you through a new move only once then expects you to do it ten times fast which even I had trouble doing and I am fairly coordinated. There is also a lot of stopping for segment introductions which interferes with the cardio aspect. I assume that the answer to those problems would be go slowly don't be afraid to hang out in front of the mirror working on one move and keep moving through the segment changes.The visual is beautiful, The costumes are amazing, she is gorgeous and if this workout gives me a figure like hers I will do it every day. She also teaches you a rather impressive dance routine at the end."
