I was excited to get this one! I was watching and waiting for it to arrive in my mailbox! It is impossible for me to choose a favorite syle of bellydance, but I CAN say that this is ONE of my favorite styles to watch!
First of all, let me say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this DVD! That is not to say this will not be a critical review, though, so let me break it down.
Fayzah starts off with a bit on essential oils. Since no warnings are mentioned in this section, I feel I must. Always do a patch test with essential oils, and unless you really know what you are doing, don't use them undiluted, as some of them will burn your skin, and all citrus oils make your skin photosensitive (which means, if you wear them in the sun, you are more likely to burn in that area).
Okay, the critical part is over! Now for some FUN! Fayzah then leads you in a guided meditation and a yoga warm-up, work-out. She then leads you through isolations, spiraling, turns, locks, pops,hits, and breaks. She shows you how she fuses a particular club move into her dance. You will learn combinations and short choreography so that you can practice your new moves and techniques. You will enjoy her spirit and her love for the dance.
Fayzah also demonstrates that zills have different tones and that you want to play with your zills to find a tone to go with your music. She does several short performances that you are sure to enjoy! THIS ONE IS FUN, GIRLS! (AND GUYS) You will find it challenging if you are not used to layering, and layering isolations, but you want a challenge, now, don't you?!! Have fun with Fayzah's combinations and playful, energetic motion!
