I ordered this DVD purely because I love Amar Gamal but I already had a hunch that it would probably not be anything overly amazing. The DVD comes in eco packaging that opens like a book and the chapter list is printed on the inside so you can never lose it.
Right as the DVD started I was disappointed with the quality of the production, it felt very amateurish. There are chapter titles that appear on every new section and they look like something I can do myself on my computer. The set where Amar instructs is Middle Eastern inspired and helps to set the mood. Amar does the whole video in front of a mirror at a slight angle, which I like because you can see the movements from both sides.
Amar is a great teacher and a wonderful dancer but I feel like this DVD is something most dancers can skip. I'm not sure what level I would rate this DVD at because while it focuses on the basic most common shimmies the instruction is not as thorough as other beginner's DVDs I have. The practice time is not very significant either, she breaks down the movement at a medium pace and then gets into it and starts layering. Granted, these are only shimmies so the layers don't get overly complicated but I feel that for a basics type of shimmy DVD there should be far more drills before layering begins to increase endurance and overall execution of the movement. It can be really discouraging for beginners who learn how to do a hybrid shimmy and have her layer a shimmy with a maya 20 minutes later. Once again, Amar is a good teacher and great dancer but I feel like there's something missing in how the instruction will come across to inexperienced dancers.

I appreciated this dvd very much. After buying Bozenka's shimmies DVD, I needed to deepen my aptitude in shimmies. Although Amar's introduction of the basics is short, she presents every moves in a very consecutive and progressive manner. I would suggest to start with Bozenka's DVD then Amar's; the pratice time is short but you can just pause and practice each moves for 5mn or more. I am very pleased with this DVD, it is about 1h30 long .. excellent.. I am a beginner/intermiediate leveled dancer..

I bought it of course because Amar is an amazing dancer and her shimmy is the bomb! My shimmy has definitely improved! I would for sure recommend it to dancers of all levels!

This isn't the worst Shimmy DVD out there but there are better ones such as Belly Dance Shimmy DVD for Beginners. The prices are around the same too. The dancer is great and has a lot of skill, and it is nice to see a belly dancer of color, but the quality of the DVD was pretty poor. The background and sound quality were not the best. That being said, I did like that she at least taught you a wide variety of shimmies that you could practice on your own. This DVD is probably better for an intermediate to advanced level belly dancers who are just trying to increase their shimmy repertoire.
