These women are really good. Just remember that they've done this all their lives. It's a good workout. Some very interesting moves to loosen. It's hard for a beginner to keep up with the intense parts but I guess that's something to work up to.

I love the beginning workout on this CD. It reminds me a lot of Tai Chi--but with music and some prettier moves. I bought this DVD to have a short and easy workout to alternate with an easy Tai Chi workout. I can almost do this workout and will be able to do it soon. It covers all sections of my body, but is not so strenuous that I will damage myself. Veena and Neena are experienced instructors and they make the workout fun, relaxing and thorough. I have not done the fat burning portion yet--I will save it for when I can do the basic moves easily and want to step up the action. It looks like there is a more advanced set of DVDs that is available if I ever get really smooth and want to move it up more.
This is a very professionally done DVD with attention to scene and background selection, good sound, selection of music and costuming as well as sound method.
Many films of this nature often leave a lot to be desired--but this one is professionally laid out and I will enjoy it for years.
I will probably buy the more advanced three set if I put in enough time to get smooth on this beginning tape.:)
I am too old to want to bellydance in a public class, but this is really fun and inspiring to try this in my own home. :)

The twins are very good instructors, the first section Basic Moves is intersting and fun, fine for beginners and for the people who wants to do some workout,but the second section Fat Burning is very very very bored,tedius and you can hurt your knees because always is jump and jump. If you want to learn bellydance you can have The Sensual Art of Bellydance series, they are very nice,sensual, fun and they teach you very good.

Veena and Neena's Bellydance for beginners is the greatest bellydance workout there is. It is really easy to follow along with and they teach you real bellydancing moves. It is really fun to do and the music they play in the background is great too. The only thing is I wish they would last longer than they do! This is the funnest way to exercise. You'll really enjoy it. But beware! After the first time you do it (both basic moves and fat burning) your WHOLE body may get really sore (especially your hips but that means the exercises really work and that your doing all the moves correctly!) You might need to take 1 or 2 days off before you do it again. Overall I can't wait to buy the rest of the DVDs from their collection!!

I just finished this workout, and I have to say, it is fabulous! Admittedly, my arms were more out of shape than I anticipated, as I found out while doing the various movements on this DVD. The moves may feel a bit odd to those of us without any prior bellydancing experience, but I easily caught on. I didn't realize how much of a workout I was getting until I sat down at the end and began to seriously sweat! It's long enough to get a good workout, but short enough that it doesn't feel dragged out with filler and talk. I can see how over a short period of time, the moves would become more natural. This is a very fun workout that is both aerobically and visually stimulating. It is well worth the money and time invested in it.

Fat Burning (25 mins) really zaps your calves. There is a lot of hopping, which you can make easier just by stepping through the moves, or by slowing down. It is challenging--even at 25 minutes. My calves ache for 2-3 days after completing it. The time does goes by quickly, and the warmup and cooldown are enjoyable.
The other segment, Basic Moves (30 minutes) would not be a challenging workout for most. The most difficult part that I found was in keeping my arms raised for extended periods. You will get some upper-body toning due to the "shoulder punches," shimmies, and by keeping your arms raised. The moves learned in don't really transfer to the Fat Burning workout, either.
Basic Moves, as many reviewers commented, is a terrific workout for exercise initiates ... but, if that's the case, new exercisers would have no use for the Fat Burning segment, which is quite challenging. This is an interesting video (my first bellydance workout video), but only one routine will actually work you out.

A refreshing change of routine. Not only am I toning muscles but learning to be graceful as well. However the jumping in the Fat Burning section can become difficult if you're carrying extra pounds.

I recently rented this video because I wasn't sure if I wanted to actually buy it. I have a bad lower back due to a work injury, so I was asking around for something low-impact. Well, this is it! I haven't had to quit because my back was hurting too much to continue. That's great! I've only done the Basic Moves part so far and I've only done it 3 times. I like the way the exercises move down your body, and no part is worked out too much. I also really like the music. The best part is I can already tell that my muscles are toning up. Everyone I know has commented "have you lost weight? Are you working out?"
I'll be the first to admit I usually don't do the whole workout video thing. Mostly because they're boring, not fun, they hurt too much, etc. The production value is not as good as I would have liked. The narration threw me off the first time I did it, but after that I just ignored it. Unfortunately, tuning the narrator out is almost essential.
Other than those two complaints, I'm extremely impressed with this DVD and will be buying it once I have the money.
