Teaching DVDs and an Internet Promise

I haven't got many teaching dvds, mostly because I prefer to learn by watching dancers performing. But I've got some, and I made an internet promise to replyhazy, to view and review one a month. So the ones I've got are:



  • Lots of Raqia Hassan Techniques, volumes 1-7 (6 is on video), 9 & 10 (I haz a major sad that I haven't got #8, nor any of the later ones)

  • Ranya Renee - Beledi & Taqasim

  • Randa Kamel Masters of Egyptian Choreography

  • Ultimate Combinations 1 &2

  • Cocktail (the classic cabaret bellydance workout)

  • Tanyeli Style Gobek Dansi

  • Tribal Fusion Bellydance with Sharon Kihara

  • East Coast Tribal - Basics, combinations & strength workout

  • Yoga conditioning with Ariellah


Without realising it, I seem to have listed these in order of favouritism! I've watched the Raqia ones mainly for the choreography performances on them. But for the purposes of the Promise, I will watch them for the teaching content, including the teachingy element to the choreographies.

So the DVD promise goes public. I will watch one of these DVDs per month, and post a review here. It won't necessarily be a useful review to anyone else. It will be personal and partial. It will be full of my own opinions and biases, and I will probably be very unwilling to like the tribal fusion ones!

PS. By way of explanation, several of these, especially the unlikely ones, were gifts from kind flisties.
