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!
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

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.
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.Read more ›
