After my Bollywood dance instructor moved away a few years ago, I've been looking for something to keep me immersed in some form of Indian dance. Coming across this on Amazon Instant video was a welcome surprise. Not only is the dance beautiful, the video was filmed at an ancient temple. I would have enjoyed watching it just to enjoy the visual elements.

The instructor emphasizes that this was meant as a supplement to in-person classes. It's worth trying even if you don't have access to a live instructor. She packs a lot in to the hour and 15 minutes of the video, so the information is presented quickly and does not get into a detailed breakdown of the movements. Be prepared to do a lot of rewinding if you aren't familiar with this or similar forms of dance. It does help that each step is presented starting in slow speed and working up to a fast pace.

Don't let the precision of the movements fool you into thinking that it is not an intense form of exercise, either. I'm not exactly a couch potato, and I was breathing hard 15 minutes into the dance practice part. You'll use muscles in your thighs that you never knew you had.

Also, don't skip over the introduction in a rush to learn the steps. Ms. Carroll gives a lot of advice in that section on what to watch out for in doing the movements, posture, etc. in addition to the expected history of the dance. The history is pretty cool, too. Odissi partially has its roots in martial arts. How interesting is that?

This is a beautiful video with great instruction. My daughter and I loved it. It's hard if you are a beginner, but we don't need to be perfect. We just wanted to learn some new things.

This is a very nice tutorial on Odissi dance. I wish there were other, similar videos available for other traditional Indian dances.

This DVD is visually stunning, however, the sound quality is soooo bad! The sound is very very low - You can barely hear it!!
