Editorial Reviews

Veil dance is one of the most glamorous and visually stunning genres of bellydance. Its expressive language conveys a wide range of moods - mysterious, romantic, celebratory, spiritual, meditative... Belly Dance with Veil, created by New York City belly dance star Sarah Skinner, is an instructional open-level program teaching the technique of veil dance from the basics of veil manipulation to the nuances of carriage, body lines, and tips for achieving an effortless, flawless performance.

P> Sarah's Veil Technique section is designed as both, a learning and reference tool: Veil dance moves are arranged in functional categories:

1. Hand and arm positions; body lines

2. Veil dance entrances and wraps

3. Turns - traveling and in place

4. Veil cascades and waterfalls

5. Traveling steps

6. Veil twists and switches

7. Veil dance endings

8. Mishap recovery

Each veil move is broken down step-by-step and practiced with music. Within each category a number of steps are assembled into a combination ready to use in your veil dance.

In the Choreography section Sarah demonstrates and teaches a full veil dance choreography incorporating the moves presented in the technique section. She provides tips for expression and adapting the choreography to one s individual style.

A special section in the program is devoted to veil selection and logistics: Sarah goes over types, textures, sources, and qualities of veil fabric, explains the correlation between veil length and fabric weight, and discusses veil shapes, edge trims, and the aesthetics of veil dance as these relate to fabric weight and transparency. Illustrating every point with her amazing selection of veils, Sarah tests each for its qualities in floating, filling with air, sheerness, and ease of manipulation.

Sarah's own style of veil dance is uniquely lyrical, sophisticated, and distinctive in its effortless elegance of execution. Sarah believes that veil tricks and methods of mishap recovery are an important gateway technique. Once mastered, this knowledge will take you to a new level of freedom in interacting with the veil, and create flawlessness and individuality of style through intuitive blending of diverse veil patterns and steps.

This veil instructional video is rich in content, presented in user friendly fashion, uncovering great veil tricks, basic veil wraps and wonderful rumba steps. The music is incredible and the choreography is a great bonus at the end. Sarah Skinner is awesome, I admire the quality and substance of her work and presentation of material.
In content, this program presents much more than many veil seminars I have attended which focus on the dancer,with few moves or tricks.
This is truly a seminar in itself presented just for you!
Learn about fabrics
traveling steps, rumba, basic, arabesque
turning and varying speed
veil swtiches
cascades
veil wraps
ending the dance
recovering the veil during an inapportune mishap
This program is beyond educational, it is enjoyable and rewarding. Find yourself drifting away with your beautiful veil, a pliable, invisible, flowing, dance partner at your command, lured away by the enchanting music of Mr.Burhan Ocal.

This is the best money I have ever spent on an instructional DVD, and the first time I have been compelled to write a review. I teach belly dance and am always looking for new, fresh ideas. Sarah covers more moves, with more variations than in any other DVD I've bought. They usually offer the same old moves, and I feel I've wasted my money. Sarah offers way more content than what is typical for these instructional DVDs. With this one, not only did I see some moves I never had before, but she shows and breaks down several moves I've never seen outside of a studio situation. She also offers some different variations on some common moves. All of her instruction is clear and easy to follow, but she doesn't spend a huge amount of time on one thing, to the point where you get bored. I only wish that she had a dozen or so videos available! Sarah is a lovely dancer, and if you like to dance with a veil, this is a fantastic addition to any one's dance repertoire.

Just loved this one! I was looking for veil instruction and Sarah came through beautifully. The DVD was well written, well presented and well rehearsed. Sarah covers veil materials (very important for movement) moves slowly through the combos, thoroughly explains them while breaking them down then sets them to music so you get the idea of how the combo flows in a choreography. She also puts all of the combos into a dance at the end so you can see how everything works. This one is a keeper and I would recommend it to anyone looking for veil instruction.

This is a fabulous instructional video. Please note that it is NOT an "exercise for weightloss" type of video, although it will work your arms. But if you're looking for a strictly weight loss exercise/bellydance type of dvd this isn't it.

I bought Sarah's other dvd when it first came out and loved it, at the end of it there is a performance section and has a veil section in it. I remember thinking then that it would be great if she'd make a veil video....and here it is! I hope she keeps coming out with more dvds in the future. She has much to offer.

If you want to learn about veilwork this is definitely worth the money. It is well thought out and well done. The section on different types and qualities of fabrics is something I've not been able to find in another video. It's nice to see the difference in the loft and qualities of the fabrics and to gain an understanding of how they're going to react, especially for someone like me who doesn't have access to bellydance shops and so I cannot try veils before I buy. There are some great veil ideas and combos, everything from wraps and entrances to the finale is covered. Finally there is a choreography using the combos you learned earlier. The mishap recovery section has good ideas on how to turn a mistake into something that looks like it was done on purpose.

My one and only complaint about this dvd is that Sarah is facing you when she instructs and she uses her left and right so you can either follow what she is doing or try and move to your left and right. I prefer videos where the instructor either mirrors her moves to what I am doing or works in front of a mirror so that I can see the front and back and move the same direction that she is. Still it's well worth 5 stars.

I had fallen into a rut with the same boring veil moves and needed some new tricks. This video was just what I was looking for at an affordable price! Learn beautiful cascades, wraps, turns, traveling steps and more. Also featured: Sarah goes over different veils by shape, size and fabric. She also discusses what to do when your veil "misbehaves" and a mishap occurs. Very thorough DVD with nice clear instruction.

I LOVED this DVD. Sarah Skinner covered a large amount of variety of material relating to veil dance. She talked about everything from selecting the material and size of your veil to basic and more advanced steps, veil mishap recovery, and choreography. She did a wonderful job breaking down the different moves and given plenty of time to practice each, then putting several moves learned in sequence to really show how to use them for choreography. She capped it off with a wonderful dance in full costume, then took each part of that apart to teach the viewer, so they would have a complete dance when done.

The only disappointment was that the video technical quality was not so good. My DVD begin skipping and stopping after viewing only a few times, and did the same on other players/my computer.
