Of late I've been using various Pilates DVD's which can be useful for helping to tone and isolate muscle, but is quite boring after a while, so I was more than ready to get off the floor and get these old bones moving. Since menopause has crept up on me I'm definitely needing to get moving about and lose some unwanted weight, so Rania is a great starting point. I'm looking forward to mastering her dance steps and finding my youthful waistline again.
One reviewer indicated this DVD was not inspiring while another said it did nothing for them and didn't teach belly dancing. Well if you are already a dance expert this may not be what you want, however, to the one who said it didn't teach belly dancing clearly they did not listen and observe in "class". Rania does a great job of showing all the steps and moves, although I do agree that more direction of exact movements would be helpful to the beginner, I was able to stop and watch, rewind and begin again as I'm sure you can too! I found it particularly useful after practicing with two of the discs to view a couple of her belly dancing performances. If you watch Rania perform you can see that everything she does in her performances she has already taught you in the exercise DVD's! Be a good student and repeat and practice and you will not only learn to belly dance and possibly perform for your hubby or significant other :)) but you will also trim up that waist along with the rest of your natural curves that only a woman can have!
One other thing....even though belly dancing is not typically a 'male' thing....my 13 year old boy is doing it with me and says some of the dancing moves are just like "Tae Bo" and he loves it! LOL Hey, if we can teach the guys to appreciate dancing young, then they will make better husbands, eh? Enjoy what Rania has to offer....I am!
The reason for 4 stars?? I had to start one DVD and when it passed the warm-up and work-out session, I had to put on the next DVD and fast forward to the the work-out session, stop it, and put on another DVD and forward to the next work-out session, and so on. One DVD's work out was only 25 minutes start to finish which isn't long enough for me. So if you don't mind combining, this is a great workout.
