With well-chosen Latin music and a fast-tempo'd pace guaranteed to satisfy the aerobic-dance crowd, this is the most accessible entry in Rania's Bellydance Fitness for Weight Loss series. Travelling steps, such as the grapevine, the duck walk, swivel walk, with a little shimmy to boot are featured. The "dessert" at the end - Rania's playful Folkloric performance with veil and cane - shows how these travelling steps are used to advantage.
I firmly believe, though, that the sum of entire Bellydance Fitness series is greater than its individual tapes. Use Pure Sweat and Cardio Shimmy on your aerobic days, Bellydance Boogie when you want to really work on your torso moves, and Hip Hop Hip Drop on your yoga days and when you need to work out sore muscles. You need to master the elements in all the tapes, not just one, to become a well-rounded dancer.
