"In the course of 4 years I have bought several beginner bellydance videos. Of them this is the best one yet for truly teaching from the ground up clearly and concisely. This dvd was recommended to me by my bellydance teacher and I just love it. The title is a little misleading, like any dance there is no "instant result", you have to practice and work at it. However if you stick with it and learn the lessons on this dvd you will have the basics needed for just about any style of bellydance. Moreover the section reviews provided for practice give you practical application of the dance moves, how they can be put together when dancing including options for framing the moves with your arms."

"I'm a beginner and I have to say that Instant Belly dancer 1 and 2 are wonderful!!!! Neon, is an excellent teacher. She reviews the moves slowly before speeding up so that you can get a feel for the movement. The first dvd is an extensive review of the basics, while the second dvd is more complex. I will warn you that this dvd is not like Neon's other dvd Luscious, instead it has more of a tutorial feel. There are reviews however after every four chapters, which puts all the steps together, but there isn't a combined dance performance. Both dvds are long and cover a lot of different steps, so it should take you some time to learn the moves. At least it takes me time. :)
A few extra bonuses
Neon is very talented! She has great muscle control and you can actually see her stomach muscles moving which is helpful because it lets you know what you should be doing. Another plus is that she wears pants in both dvds so you can see her leg movements. The beat in the music is clear. I definitely recommend it. Another thing is that Neon has posted a three minute introduction on youtube to the dvd. Watching that helped me choose it."
