Great veil instruction
Seir | USA | 01/31/2008

"This veil instructional video is rich in content, presented in user friendly fashion, uncovering great veil tricks, basic veil wraps and wonderful rumba steps. The music is incredible and the choreography is a great bonus at the end. Sarah Skinner is awesome, I admire the quality and substance of her work and presentation of material.
In content, this program presents much more than many veil seminars I have attended which focus on the dancer,with few moves or tricks.
This is truly a seminar in itself presented just for you!
Learn about fabrics
traveling steps, rumba, basic, arabesque
turning and varying speed
veil swtiches
veil wraps
ending the dance
recovering the veil during an inapportune mishap
This program is beyond educational, it is enjoyable and rewarding. Find yourself drifting away with your beautiful veil, a pliable, invisible, flowing, dance partner at your command, lured away by the enchanting music of Mr.Burhan Ocal."

"Just loved this one! I was looking for veil instruction and Sarah came through beautifully. The DVD was well written, well presented and well rehearsed. Sarah covers veil materials (very important for movement) moves slowly through the combos, thoroughly explains them while breaking them down then sets them to music so you get the idea of how the combo flows in a choreography. She also puts all of the combos into a dance at the end so you can see how everything works. This one is a keeper and I would recommend it to anyone looking for veil instruction."

"This is the best money I have ever spent on an instructional DVD, and the first time I have been compelled to write a review. I teach belly dance and am always looking for new, fresh ideas. Sarah covers more moves, with more variations than in any other DVD I've bought. They usually offer the same old moves, and I feel I've wasted my money. Sarah offers way more content than what is typical for these instructional DVDs. With this one, not only did I see some moves I never had before, but she shows and breaks down several moves I've never seen outside of a studio situation. She also offers some different variations on some common moves. All of her instruction is clear and easy to follow, but she doesn't spend a huge amount of time on one thing, to the point where you get bored. I only wish that she had a dozen or so videos available! Sarah is a lovely dancer, and if you like to dance with a veil, this is a fantastic addition to any one's dance repertoire."
Excellent instruction!

"This is a fabulous instructional video. Please note that it is NOT an "exercise for weightloss" type of video, although it will work your arms. But if you're looking for a strictly weight loss exercise/bellydance type of dvd this isn't it.

I bought Sarah's other dvd when it first came out and loved it, at the end of it there is a performance section and has a veil section in it. I remember thinking then that it would be great if she'd make a veil video....and here it is! I hope she keeps coming out with more dvds in the future. She has much to offer.

If you want to learn about veilwork this is definitely worth the money. It is well thought out and well done. The section on different types and qualities of fabrics is something I've not been able to find in another video. It's nice to see the difference in the loft and qualities of the fabrics and to gain an understanding of how they're going to react, especially for someone like me who doesn't have access to bellydance shops and so I cannot try veils before I buy. There are some great veil ideas and combos, everything from wraps and entrances to the finale is covered. Finally there is a choreography using the combos you learned earlier. The mishap recovery section has good ideas on how to turn a mistake into something that looks like it was done on purpose.

My one and only complaint about this dvd is that Sarah is facing you when she instructs and she uses her left and right so you can either follow what she is doing or try and move to your left and right. I prefer videos where the instructor either mirrors her moves to what I am doing or works in front of a mirror so that I can see the front and back and move the same direction that she is. Still it's well worth 5 stars.
