A few people have complained about lack of cues when changing poses in the warm-up/yoga sections, I have no problem. I watched it through and knew what was coming up.
You have a choice of 3 lengths of workout 15/30/45 minutes, each adding an extra couple of moves from the section before so you can build up or dip in depending how much time you have. The instructions are quite clear, the production is high so you get a good look at how the dancer is moving.
Great for building bellydancing stamina and Rachel Brice is a great dancer. Well worth the bargain price.
It will not teach you all the ins and outs of Tribal Fusion bellydance, in that the title is perhaps misleading.
The workout covers a handful of movements (off the top of my head: chest lifts, hipwork on the up, hipwork on the down, undulations down to up and up to down, chest eights, omis), which are only drilled individually with increasing speed, plus a number of yoga poses arranged in a warmup and cooldown. No combos, no choreos.
I find this video absolutely perfect for a midweek workout. You can choose between a 15, 30 and 45 minutes practice, which will have a slightly modified warmup and cooldown and a selection of the movements. 15 minutes might not seem much, but it is quite intense as all the movements presented are muscular rather than skeletal. I normally do the 30 minutes practice on its own, or the 15 minutes with some freestyle dancing.
It's nice to turn the voice-over off (once you're used to the DVD though!) so you can really focus on the moves and not the instrucion - it gives you the sense that you know what you're doing, rather than just following the leader. Would recommend.
I really enjoyed it and found it works really nicely as a companion whilst taking classes as it mixes the yoga & drills that are the basis of the style of dance.
I like the fact that you can choose from sections depending on if you have time for a full practice or just want 15 mins quick session.
I am not sure if for a complete beginner this would be too much - not strenuous, but the detail in how to make the muscular movements is touched upon but not in too much detail (it does say it's a companion!)
So overall I love it as it'll help me keep up practicing the basic components
