4.  Bellydance for Core Fitness, with Ayshe: Belly dance fitness, Belly dance abdominal workout, Belly dance instruction DVD ~ Ayshe
The list author says:
  "This DVD is mandatory material for every "serious" bellydancer. The item description on amazon quotes 90 min run time but in fact it's almost 2.5 hours! Learning how to isolate specific muscles is the most fundamental skill in bellydance. Recommended for dancers of all levels. Even though it's advertised as "fitness", it's most valuable for Ayshe's explanations in the Tutorial."
