Not worth the money!,
This review is from: Belly Dancing [DVD] (DVD)
I borrowed this DVD from a friend and can't say i was impressed in the slightest. The dancer seemed more interested in looking the part with her make-up and fancy costumes and setting the scene than actually demonstrating the moves clearly for viewers. As others have commented, it is so difficult to see what she is doing with her legs when she's wearing a long flowing skirt - is her heel up or down, is her knee bent or straight? The viewer has to do a lot of guesswork, which defeats the object entirely.
I've bought other instructional DVDs and the teachers wear lycra so the viewers can see exactly what they're doing - their movements are also more fluid and their dance style a lot more professional. I'm not sure this teacher has been dancing for very long. In her dance sequences, some of her moves do seem rather amateurish.
In all honesty, this is not worth the money. There are so many better belly dance DVDs out there.
