This is a good production quality dvd with chapters & bonus performance by Amira.
This is set so that it looks like Amira is in a traditional Middle Eastern tent. The choices of volors/fabric & decoration is wonderful, though to me it felt a little claustrophobic but doesn't hamper/distract the great teaching.
Amira is very relaxed, friendly, patient. This is a learning like a class dvd, not a workout, though she does have you practice for a decent amount of time before moving on. Even better, the music is slow/soft to start which bored me, but it increased in tempo so that I did full speed on moves since I already knew them from my many other bellydance dvds. Even though I own more, her teaching is great, she taught me that snake arms come fron the shoulders, not the arms which makes a huge difference.
Amira starts with a short 3 min intro about belly dance history & benefits.
There is about a 5 min stretch with head rolls, shoulder rolls, hip stretch, squats & spine stretch movements.
Head/Sshoulders - head shifts, snack arms, wings
Chest - shifts, vertical & horizontal chest circles, camel
Hips - hip single & double bumps, hip circles, hip lifts & drops & w/kick & diff directions, hip twists, figure 8s, vertical figure 8 is touched on,
Shimmies - Lebonnese/hip focused & Egyptian knee focused
Combinations - simple routine of shoulder shimmy, chest lifts, shoulder roll, hip lifts/drops, body wave & ends in shimmy done 4x in faster succession.
The learning/practice portion ends at about the 55 min mark.
This dvd is best for people new to bellydance or feel that they didn't get enough detailed instruction on ones they already own. If you feel you already happy with how you execute with the moves listed above, skip this dvd.
