"The Golden Apple" DVD features original belly dance choreographies and improvisations by three dedicated artists and stars of the New York City belly dance scene - Jenna, Blanca, and Neon - and a special performance by Jehan, a renowned NYC choreographer and master teacher whose creative vision contributed significantly to shaping the three performers' individual dance styles. The music and dance styles presented in this program range from traditional to contemporary. All four dance artists in this recording share a vision of bellydance as a highly emotive art. Entertaining and glamorous, their dance presentations retain a strong focus on the message of each piece. In the exotic language of bellydance they talk about the emotional journey and the spiritual search of a modern-day woman.
The DVD features a number of songs from Jehan's "21st Century Priestess," an Arabesque fusion 2-CD album (StreetNoiz Records) and NYC "Taksim" trio playing traditional bellydance songs and jazz fusion.
DVD bonus features:
* Performance by Jehan from Jehan's Off-Boradway extravaganza "Goddessdance" - "21st Century Priestess"
* "Jammed Tight" - Near-Eastern jazz fusion - original composition by Souren Baronian, performed by "Taksim" trio
* Optional subtitles display discography for Jehan and "Taksim" and English-language lyrics of Jehan's songs
* Discography pages for Jehan and "Taksim" trio
* Photo slide shows
This DVD features skilled belly dancers who are quite talented. There was one performance with Jehan done with veils. Read morePublished on April 12, 2012 by apriles78

It gets a bit repetitive, some dancers have good technique but no passion. It left me feeling like there was something missing.Published on March 21, 2008 by Azime
It has a lot of new age type music. Wasn't really my cup of tea. But I always love to watch Neon, as she is an amazing dancer.Published on September 1, 2007 by CherryJellyBean

Fair production value, although the dances/dancers are very poorly lit at times. Bellydance fans will probably appreciate this DVD. Bellydancers may find it repetitive. Read morePublished on November 7, 2006 by Work of Life
