As a former dance teacher and long-time dancer, I've used many belly dance videos. This one is a really good introduction for someone who isn't sure she wants to spend a lot of time learning to dance- it is a good introduction with an instructor who teaches the basics in a slow and thorough manner. Also good for someone who'd just like to get in shape.

Couldn't even finish it

"I went to the library to check this out (just like another reviewer did) and was glad I didn't pay anything for this! It just didn't do anything for me.
I checked out the bonus performance and have seen better dancing at amateur shows, to be frank. She was OK but nothing exceptional by far. Maybe if you saw her dancing at a local show, but to have her own video really got me wondering - why?
She breaks down the moves in little segments, and I got bored halfway through. Plus I didn't like the 'sassy' angle she plays up. Bellydance is sensual, fun, and even can be humorous, but somehow she just didn't portray any of those qualities.
I've got stuff by Jillina, the Bellytwins, Bellyqueen, Suhaila, Mara, Goldea, Dolphina, Bellydance Superstars, Atea and a couple others. And they are all better than this. Some vids make you feel challenged, sensual, are fun, and can even wipe out a bad mood or raise my energy if I'm feeling down or tired out, but this did nothing for me. If you have it and like it, more power to you, but this did absolutely nothing for me."
Fun maybe; accurate portrayal, no

"I would consider this video damaging to anyone who is truly interested in learning belly dance. Not only are movements done incorrectly, but they are wrong. The "camel," or undulation is done with an accompanying arm movement that resembles something out of a football stadium not Egypt - it's the wave, not belly dance. I'm not sure where this dancer learned this technique.

Her "hip drops" are actually "hip ups," and she routinely counts incorrectly for the movements she is demonstrating (things that take four counts are counted out in three counts).

Aside from bad belly dancing, this dancer is dressed in a distracting manner - almost as distracting as her affected tone and the wrinkling of her nose each time she wants to emphasize something. It's not sassy, it's silly, and it may encourage others to learn belly dance improperly, or even worse perform in a manner that looks foolish."
Great for Me!!!

"Out of all the reviews for this DVD I've read, most are rather unflattering. Mine isn't. I'm rather fond of this DVD. I received this for a b-day present, and as I have fibro-myalgia and arthritis to boot, these movements are helping me regain some of my lost mobility. I first started out doing the movements in my chair and then gradually tried them on my feet. These excersizes are geared towards WIMPS...this would be me. I'm not fond of pain,having lived with it for many years, but this is much lower and slower impact than many bellydance tapes I've tried. It's a good start for those of us who want to learn slowly and not hurt our backs or shoulders. I think her slow steady attitude is fine, rather upbeat and easy to follow. If you're looking for a hurry-up method, this isn't it. if you are a Wimp like I am, give this a try."
