Delightful to watch

"This DVD is simply three dances by Hossam's wife, Serena. You can view them all together or one at a time from different angles. It's not good as an instructional belly dance DVD but I liked it because Serena is beautiful to watch and I just loved the way she moved. I've watched it several times and didn't get sick of it."
Beautiful, but not the instructional DVD

"I had read great reviews about the Visual Melodies Instructional DVD that Hossam and Serena Ramzy created, and couldn't wait to get my copy. However, this DVD is not it. They created a cut version of the instructional DVD with only the performances on it, not all the great instructional information on the rhythms (Rhythms of the Nile CD by Hossam Ramzy is great for this).
This is still a great performance DVD as Serena is a beautiful dancer and very enjoyable to watch and they left in the feature of viewing the dances from different angles. I just wish they had made a point of marketing this DVD differently, pointing out that it was a performance DVD ONLY, also named Visual Melodies."
Disappointment. Not worth the price!

"Has three rather similar performances, no one very different from the others except for her outfits. All dances are performed in front of a tall armoire so that distinguishing Serina from the background is sometimes difficult. View from three angles is nothing more than two re-runs. Found it moderately entertaining but the "entertainment" section is over very quickly. Much of the DVD is spent naming family members and friends from either Egypt or Brazil and listing all of Hossam Ramzy's productions and where to buy them failing to indicate whether they are CD's or DVD's. I will relegate this one to the shelf along with future ones that are promised."
