I absolutely love this DVD! It was exactly what I was looking for! A few years back, I was lucky enough to find a Belly Dance and fell in love with the dance form. Unfortunately, live got in the way, and I was no longer able to attend the class. Since then, I have been trying desperately to find instructional videos that came close to the classroom setting and didn't simply repeat a hip drop on to infinity or try to make the dance more of a "fitness routine", and this is it!
This DVD is broken down into 5 segments:
1. Stretching-a brief stretch of a few major muscle groups. Jillina does recommend a good warm-up of at least 20 minutes prior to stretching and dancing.
2. Technique-an introduction into each of the individual moves with an excellent breakdown of each movement. Each move is only repeated a few times, so you may want to rewind and repeat if you feel you need more time to absorb the movement.
3. Combinations-This section along with the next section is what really makes the DVD work it's weight in gold! Jillina take the individual movements from the Technique section and combines them into short sequences. She walks you through each step and breaks it down without music. After each breakdown section, she includes a segment with music in which you can repeat the combination a number of times (of course, with her vocal instructions included!). The music here is a little bit more pop Arabic music (Hakim, Warda, etc.) rather than more traditional belly dance music, but it is upbeat and fun to dance to.
4. Choreography-This section takes each of the combinations, with a few variations, and combines them into a choreographed dance! Each combination is reviewed with the additional variations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, and a bargain too.... June 16 2004
By Cikk
I'm so glad I didn't let the couple of bad reviews here put me off, as I would have missed out on three excellent DVDs, which teach great choreographies in a very clever way - using a mirror to show both views. Jillina is professional, she obviously knows her stuff, and her instructions, though brief, are to the point and use imagery that helped me finally "get" a couple of moves I never did before. She doesn't wear a long flowing skirt that obscures her legs to teach, which is a great help.
Last but not least, Jillina has a lovely figure, with well defined hips - not that a woman with a straight up and down body couldn't belly dance, of course - but hips do help. I personally have wide hips - but her well proportioned body didn't upset me (grin) as I don't buy bellydance videos to give me affirmation....... how sad for those who do.....
Amazon needs to do some policing of reviews. The amount of bitchy reviews I read on this site are something else. They do seem to home in on the bellydance videos - so I suppose it could be some kind of reverse marketing. We have all read the stories about authors reviewing their own books, and roping in friends to add more reviews. The opposite is obviously also happening. What people who write racist and virulent reviews don't realise is that the majority of people who frequent this site are intelligent - otherwise they wouldn't be able to get their brains round the net! Intelligent people recognise personalised attacks for what they are. I take note of reviews that advise of bad production values and so on, but anything that criticises a dancer because she is the wrong race to bellydance would actually push me to buy it. The one video I have by someone who I suppose would be the "right" race is incomprehensible.

It's really easy to learn and very fun to do. It's an amazing ab workout and you can't even feel it so you don't get tired. The camel is the hardest for me (full torso belly roll sorta thing) but PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.
I can't wait to get the next two tapes!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good video at a good price June 3 2004
This DVD is great for dancers who don't need to be guided through every little step. If you know basic moves, this will work for you. She teaches the moves quickly, but well! No need to repeat a move a million times. Just learn it and move on. If you don't need a DVD to hold your hand through practicing moves yourself, you'll like how quickly she progresses. The real meat of this DVD is the combinations and choreography. I loved the choreography, and the combos are very useful to have at hand. Lastly, she demonstrated the choreography, although altered and with more dancing added, in front of a small audience in a lovely costume. The camera angles are appropriate. The set is good, as well as the sound. The price is very reasonable. Jillina is smiling and happy, classy, and professional as always.
Lastly, comments made by other reviewers insinuating that Jillina is "fake" and a bad dancer because she isn't middle eastern are just plain uncalled for. Jillina's style may not be Dina's, but she does her style and she does it well. I may not always like her style myself, but I can recognize talent. She is obviously a talented dancer, and if you can't see past her ethnicity to see that, then you shouldn't be writing reviews. Keep your racist comments to yourself.
