Editorial Reviews

The Discover Bellydance series teaches you authentic Egyptian Bellydance moves and fully choreographed dance routines. This program introduces the intermediate movements of bellydancing. You will learn beyond basic moves that will enable you to perform a fully choreographed energetic dance routine.

After a satisfying warm-up, you will receive step-by-step instructions from identical twins Veena & Neena, on how to execute the upper and lower body movements associated with bellydance. the elements are isolated and taught slowly, so you can learn each movement's subtleties. As you become more comfortable with the moves, you can develop speed and expression. Veena & Neena will teach you rib circles, hip drop-kicks and shimmies, traveling steps and full turns combined with graceful arm and shoulder moves. Now you are ready to integrate these movements into a fun and exciting choreographed dance routine!

Customer Reviews

This is immensely difficult for a beginner dancer-and for many experienced ones!
Barbara Flowers
I have purchased a number of bellydance videos by different instructors and so far I like the best Veena's and Neena's instructional videos for bellydancing.
Laura De Giorgio
The workout videos don't always explain everything quite as well, but the more you do them the easier it gets.

I have both this video and Basic Dance in my collection, along with Neena and Veena's Bellydance Fitness for Beginners: Basic Moves video. I've always wanted to learn bellydance, but am THE WORLD'S MOST UNCOORDINATED PERSON! But, believe it or not, I have almost mastered all the moves on the videos I have! It's so much fun and so rewarding! The instruction is unparallelled, and you feel sensual and fantastic from start to finish. And as a bonus, these videos have helped me trim THREE inches off my waist in a little more than a month! I can't say enough for these tapes, and I'm buying Mystic Dance ASAP as well! :)

This video is a sleek, professionally-shot production in a lush setting reminescent of a Sultan's palace...thick carpeting underfoot, velvet cushions in indolent disarray, the warm glow of candles, richly appointed drapes flowing to the floor, artfully arranged potted palms, and a matching set of beautiful dancing girls sets the mood.
I thoroughly enjoyed simply WATCHING this video-the voice-over was less distracting than when an instructor talks as she teaches, and the camera shots glide smoothly from front, side angles to zoom-in and pan-out. The outfits worn by Veena and Neena are attractive (midriff tanks, leggings and hipscarves) and allow a good view of how the legs, arms, torso and hips should be moving.
In both the warm-up segment and the dance segment the moves are carefully explained and demonstrated. (I did not agree with two particular techniques...hip shimmies are shown with straight legs, with the knees bouncing forward and back. This can cause damage to the knees over time. I prefer shimmies to be taught in a bent knee posture, which protects these extremely vulnerable joints. Secondly...single hiplifts and drops are demonstrated on the tips of the toes. This is immensely difficult for a beginner dancer-and for many experienced ones! I teach this on the ball of the foot, which makes it easier to maintain balance, and cuts down on cramping in the arch).
The twins show a nice, simple choreography which utilizes the movements taught in the video...once in the workout clothes with a pretty chiffon skirt added, then again in vintage-style full costume!
I REALLY liked this video-the quality was impressive and the price reasonable. (The twin's physiques inspired me to diet)! I recommend this as a practice video, or as an instructional tape for a dancer without an instructor in her area.

Neena and Veena are lovely, sweet, and graceful. I found this video far more challenging than the first. They teach each move carefully, but the performance is fast-paced and gets your heart rate up, and the whole video really tones the arms and the torso. If you haven't learned to do hip drops, you might want to check out their Basic Dance video where they teach you exactly how to do it, because in Beyond Basic Dance, they expect you to already know it. This is yet another good quality about their videos--you really get your money's worth because if they taught you a move in one video, they won't re-teach it in another so you are assured of each video's uniqueness. A couple of the moves were very difficult for me to get, but I am very uncoordinated, and have a hard time following even the moves on aerobic videos. I highly recommend this video--I loved the soul-capitivating music, the inside-an-Arabian-palace background, their attitude (sweet and professional without being overly cheery nor condescending), and the womanly and challenging moves. To me, bellydance is one of the best and healthiest kinds of dance for a woman, and Veena and Neena do a great job of introducing it to a beginner!

Have you always wanted to learn Belly dance but have no instructors in your area? Too shy to try it in front of others? Or just need a fast & fun way to get in shape? Buy this tape! Veena & Neena are beautiful to watch and show the movements slowly and very, very clearly! You begin learning warm ups, hand movements, stomach movements, lower body movements, and last but not least - the dance.
This video is simple enough for someone who has never danced before to follow but challenging enough so that if you have been dancing, there are new things to learn. I would actually give this tape to a beginner rather than an intermediate level student.. If you have studied Hawaiian or even Tahitian dance.. you already would know 1/2 of what they teach here (with slight variations on hand positions).. The girls dance and you watch and the instructor explains their every movement and how to make it.. and even encourages you the whole way through.
If you have never danced before.. this tape is just what you need.. but please be aware that you will need to rewind this a few times to get your steps down.. and it will take LOTS of practice to move like the girls on the video. If you are buying this for fitness, practice the stomach moves over and over again. Your abs will tighten up in no time however, if you are wanting to lose weight, you will need to diet as well.
If you have weak knees or bad ankles, make SURE you check with your doctors because there are a lot of movements on these parts of your body. If you have had a back injury or suffer from stiff lower back and/or pelvis.. this tape will help you loosen them up!
Overall this is probably the best tape you could give to a beginner for either learning belly dance or for dieting!
