Hossam Ramzy's new DVD Bedouin Tribal Dance gives you full choreographies for 5 different Bedouin "Haggallah" wedding dances, and shows you about 14 different steps and step combinations that make up the dances demonstrated on the dvd.

The DVD is 2-sided, PAL on one side, NTSC on the other, so if you're like me and you stick it in your player and get mad because it doesn't work, try flipping it over and playing the other side :)

There are choreography notes available as a separate download (no charge). The notes are VERY handy if you want to break down the individual dances and if you want to see how the steps shown on the dvd fit the sections of the music. The DVD comes with an insert that has a very brief description of the kind of dances on the dvd, a description of the songs, and a transcript of what Serena says when she's teaching.

FIRST -- this is NOT a dvd for beginners. Basically it's assumed that you know how to a 3/4 shimmy on the down, hip drops and lifts, one-hip hip circles, and you're able to turn around yourself in a circle and do very simple traveling steps like flat-ball.

ALSO -- It's not "Tribal" in the ATS way, or Tribal Fusion way. It's simply ethnic dances of the Bedouin. No turbans or flying skirts or Melodia pants.

The performances are in full costume, with a live band (Gypsies of the Nile) and feature Serena soloing, group dances, and Serena and Group. There are 2 basic costumes, but I don't know anything more about them. That's one thing I wish he had covered more of, cause I'm a culture geek.

Performances are lovely, professionally filmed on a stage dressed up to look like a wedding tent. Very clear filming, with occasional closeups. Very well lit. One performance features a men's "chorus" of dancers.

Nice DVD with several folkloric performances featuring Serena Ramzy, along with Bedouin dancers, musicians and Hossam Ramzy on percussion. Serena also included a section of succinct how-to's for 11 steps, including slow-motion demonstrations with voiceovers detailing the techniques. The how-to section also includes the same steps shown in real time. The DVD is well indexed so that you can easily select individual performances, or go to a specific step in the how-to section and see it in slow-mo or real time. It is helpful that the booklet which comes with the DVD also spells out the steps and gives further info about the background of the dances. If you like the music on this DVD it is available seperately on CD Bedouin Tribal Dance

I was not surprised with the great performances! I'm a huge Hossam Ramzy fan and this one topped it for me. Because I'm a Ghawazee dancer, this touched my heart deeply! My favorite performance/dance/song is Enta W'Bas, sung by an original bedouin Yasmin Saied! I went as far as emailing Mr. Ramzy to ask where I can purchase more music by the singer, and then he goes to tell me that she only sings within her tribe and did this as a one time project. However the performances are fabulous and if you have a good knowledge of belly dance already, you'll def. be able to learn from this DVD. The backgrounds and themes/sceneraios fit the script so it doesn't look like some cheesy plot! Serena also does some step by step moves to help you get a better grasp of the movements done....I love it because the authencity is there...and thats where the dance started from!

This is a great performance dvd. I loved the dances, costumes, and music. It's good to see a different style of Middle Eastern dance, and presented so well. I would not classify this dvd as instructional though(There is a section that shows moves that are used in the dances, but it doesn't really break it down.)
This is a great dvd and I am so glad I bought it.
