Dancing is great, editing not so great.

"The dances on this dvd seem rushed somehow. As though it was a quick shoot, then badly edited. The performers were beautiful, performances were cut strangely, many times the film editing zero'd in on the boobs!
This dvd is ok. not wonderful like some of the others."

"There is a lot of Tribal Bellydance out there these days. Most of it can be compared to the infestation of teenage vampire novels and movies that we are currently experiencing: addictive, dark, eclectic, brooding and getting old.
I enjoyed much of this DVD. Not all of it, but that comes down to personal taste, doesn't it? Some of the dances on this DVD may be pushing the "Tribal Fusion" envelope, but I don't care. At least I found it interesting to watch, and there are parts I have gone back and watched again and again in order to learn something new and add variety to my own practice.
Mira Betz opens with a mystifying "cabaribal" piece whose emotion blows me away. I will admit to warming up by shadowing this dance on a regular basis.
Zoe Jakes and Kami Liddle do some good stuff- although it's not their best (but I've seen them live a few times so...)
There are a few duets that I found were well put together, such as Ultra Gypsy's.
Aubre - holy rubber-bodied snake girl dance! I don't know if I love it or I hate it, but I can't stop watching it!!!
Subee Djinn: There is a very cool connection there - like those ladies can see into each other's souls.
The Bad: (take with a grain of salt!)
I could have left the faux-20s fan dance by Princess Farhana (who seriously needs to work on her isolation skills!)
The quasi-jazz stripteasesque number by the Nekiya. Totally NOT into that style of fusion.
Oh - and Domba's "African Fusion" features some epic blunders (If you're into that style enough to watch it all the way through).
Katie Kay, I admit was entertaining for the first minute, then I just spend the rest of the time wondering whether her face would freeze into one of those fake pouts she was pulling.
What I do like about it, I like enough to give it 4 stars."
