Editorial Reviews

Review

It's the kind of program that will reward practice but will still look good on the enthusiastic beginner. -- Amanda DeWees, DVD Verdict

Neon treats bellydancing as something that's fun to do, but she also offers detailed explanations and tips for proper technique. --Shira, Dance Critic, Historian, Instructor

Product Description

Hot belly dance combinations for club and party dancing. First dance instruction DVD to offer concurrent head-on and from-the-back images of the instructor during practice.

Cool, sexy dance combinations can be learned separately or as a club-ready belly dance routine that is also a graceful aerobic workout. Take 10 lessons step-by-step, or just follow Neon in full-length practice sessions: choose from 3 tempos! Animated graphic rendering of dance moves helps you understand the steps, and explains how to teach them to your friends at a party.

If you are not yet familiar with belly dance, this program will introduce you to the belly dance vocabulary. It is also a great mini exercise routine. Belly dance will increase the flexibility of your body and enhance your natural grace in movement both on and off the dancefloor. Try it and see for yourself: Belly dance is a whole aesthetic system that can change your life in most amazing ways.

Planning a party with bellydancing? First learn a few of these combinations - the ones you like best - with a couple of your friends. Then perform them at the party and teach the whole gang. Hold a belly dancing contest. It's OK if you win because, hey: It's your party!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real dancing, real fast July 4, 2004
Format:DVD
This DVD goes with the two other Neon DVDs from her "Instant Belly Dancer" set, "Curves" and "Hipwork Plus". It uses the same teaching method and visuals, the geometric shapes that follow "trajectories" of bellydance movements. Unlike the "Instant Belly Dancer" DVDs, geometric illustrations are given only for more difficult movements. What I like most about this DVD is that the cute "Belly Dance Party" routine consists of 10 separate mini-dances that are particularly easy to learn and show to others. The whole idea of the DVD is not only teach you the dances, but to enable you to teach your friends how to do these dances too, instantly. To test out this idea I actually took the two easiest (for me) combinations (they all look really sexy and impressive), learned them the best I could on a Sunday morning, and just went out and started dancing them at my girlfriend's wedding reception that same afternoon. You can dance them to any music. It absolutely worked: I ended up teaching the same moves to all the women at the reception including grandmothers. The "instant gratification" aspect is real. Neon teaches real dancing, real fast. If you are a fan of the Instant Belly Dancer DVDs, this one is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Building Blocks-Great Production! October 12, 2004
Format:DVD
What is different and wonderful about this DVD is the way it is set up. Most DVDs take you through a main choreography, or a series of movements without drilling the way that the movements connect. I was happy to see the building block system, since that is how I teach beginning classes.

The DVD is divided into ten different mini-routines, which can be quickly learned by beginners (there are some intermediate movements, but they can be easily substituted). There is also a practice section, where you get to dance along with Neon as she goes through each mini-routine, at three different paces. This is a DVD that won't get dusty on your shelf!

Neon's teaching style is also very explicit and easy to follow. She mentions both the way to properly execute the move, and also which muscles to focus for maximum effect. The production is wonderful here! The lighting is clear and bright, and handy diagrams are placed over each move to show direction! Fabulous!

Neon is also one of the most fluid dancers I have seen in some time, and there is a lovely section where you can sit back watch her dance with a balanced tray of flowers. I didn't even mind the swirly background, it seemed to work somehow--I'm sure this is a credit to the editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great belly dance class! April 10, 2005
Format:DVD
This DVD is very effective as a belly dancing jumpstart for beginners. Twice I gave it as a gift to friends who were new to belly dance, and in no time they were doing the "arabic hip walk" and all the other 3/4 bellydance hip isolations and travel steps Neon teaches in this video, things I used to think were difficult for beginners. Neon's unique teaching method is the key. She takes challenging moves, breaks them down into simple linear "trajectories" and shows them in diagrams overlaid on her body . Another key is that each and every move is taught in some kind of a combination with another move. As in learning a language, it's the way you connect the words that really creates the meaning. I think the comparison to language learning is real: Neon has a masters degree in linguistics. So, very uniquely for a dance instructor, she teaches dance like a foreign language immersion course. You speak it and think in it - right from the start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neon makes it easy! November 17, 2005
Format:DVD
"Belly Dance Party" is a fantastic way to learn the basics of belly dancing, with Neon giving precise and clear instruction, as she demonstrates in this well produced DVD. She stands before a completely black background, so one can perfectly see every move, and one is also aided by the occasional graphic in the form of circles and arrows. Neon is an exquisite dancer, with a sculpted figure, incredible grace, and a technique that is a marvel. Born in Moscow, Neon speaks with a softly Russian accented English, and has a very pleasing voice, which adds to the overall enjoyment of learning to belly dance with this DVD.

The Combinations:

Neon gives us 10 combinations to learn, which we can learn individually or sequentially, and the choreography is well balanced and uses the entire body, so that no single part gets overly tired, unlike some belly dance instruction DVDs I have tried by other teachers. One can learn these combinations alone or in a group, and they can also be a marvelous body workout. The total time for this instruction is approximately 63 minutes.

The Practice: There are 3 speeds one can practice the combinations in, and in this section, Neon dances with us facing front as well as back, which is very helpful. This section runs in a loop, so you can practice for as long as you like without needing the remote control to replay it.

Extras: "Welcome," where Neon talks about the combinations, the various ways you can learn them, and what belly dancing can do for your life, by increasing your coordination, and much more. "The Arrival," where Neon shows her artistry in a number where she dances with a tray of lit candles on her head.
