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.

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.

I do enjoy this DVD. For someone who has never done belly dancing before it sure is fun. It will take me a couple of tries to get the routine down but I think she teaches really well. I'm not at all worried I won't understand the techniques. She goes into great detail of all the moves and repeats dance steps and combinations over again so you can pick them up easily.

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!

A wonderful instructional video with very few exceptions. In this DVD, Jillana covers the basic belly dance moves you will need for the perfomance you are about to learn and then goes on to teach you the choreographed dance broken up into several sections.
Pros:
She is so graceful! All of the moves are well done and she explains each one so it is very easy to understand. A superb DVD for those who have a background in belly dancing.
Cons:
A beginner would probably benefit more from a video that focuses on the basic moves alone. I wished that there were more chapters so that I could skip back to re-practice certain moves.

Overall, this is a great and challenging DVD. You get to learn a choreographed dance, Alf Leyla We Leyla, a fun and upbeat routine. It's difficult at first, but as you learn the moves through repetition, it gets much easier and very fun. Her professional performance of Alf Leyla We Leyla at the end is very inspiring and makes you want to practice it even more!
