Format: DVD
Belly dance is much more fun learned in a class, but these DVDs are a good back-up if you are just starting out and want a structured practice at home. All three DVDs have the same format: you learn various steps and movements, then at the end you learn a short routine.
The background is nice: lots of candles and curtains. The two dancers are lovely to watch. So the DVD is not boring, and that should bring you back. It's not a cardio workout, but you will notice your abs working to stabilize your torso.
My main criticism is the voice-over. The two dancers demonstrate perfect form, but say nothing. The instruction is given by someone who was apparently not watching the DVD at the time because her timing is usually wrong. Sometimes you have to ignore her in order to figure out what is going on in a step. Sometimes she completely fails to mention crucial details (ex. in one step the dancers go up on the toes of the back foot) so you have to be watching the dancers very closely. If you've never taken dance lessons before then this might be extremely frustrating. If you've had some dance experience then you'll enjoy these disks.
Worst of all, no information is given on proper posture. You could hurt your back doing all the twisting motions!!! Please make sure you are constantly monitoring your posture: shoulders down away from your ears, shoulderblades pulled down your back, chest lifted straight up, your butt tucked slightly underneath, and knees slightly bent (never locked or hyperextended). Many of the hip motions come from bending your knees (watch the dancers' knees and feet). If you feel ANY discomfort in your lower back then stop and reassess your posture.

Format: DVD
I purchased the DVD set (not having ready any reviews) wanting to learn something new, have fun doing some sort of exercise, spice up my sensuality, and really to try to bring my body back to some sort of shape four months after giving childbirth.
I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!
I really enjoy this DVD set. The lessons are fun to learn with several movements much easier to learn that I thought they would be (like shoulder shakes and body shimmies) I didn't feel like any of the moves were impossible to master. You're working out while you're learning and having fun at the same time.
One bonus for me is that my four month old son enjoys watching lovely Veena and Neena dance while I follow along (looking silly right now). So I can get in my physical activity without waiting for him to nap.
I look forward to the time I can show my new talent to my husband, which I have no doubt he will enjoy. Until then I'm going to keep practicing, practicing, practicing, with Veena and Neena.
The extra dance videos are fun to watch and really get your imagination going. They show the different forms of belly dancing there are out there. The costumes are lovely (and inspiring)and so are the ladies performing them. I've gotten several good ideas as to the type of costume I would like to make for myself.
If you decide that to buy this DVD set, I doubt you'll be disappointed. It's fun, lovely, and tastefully done.

Format: DVD
I love Neena & Veena and I buy only their stuff. Now that I finally have their DVD boxed set, I am thrilled. I can finally learn how to put the different moves into a dance. I go back and forth from DVD to DVD to challenge myself and mix things up.
The DVDs included in this set are: Basic Dance, Beyond Basic Dance, and Mystic Dance. They are beautifully done with amazing costumes and breathtaking backgrounds. The music is always great, and there is lots of neat extra dance footage. The only reason I give this set 4 out of 5 stars is because some of the instructional parts of the videos are too rushed. They will sometimes show you the basic move, do it once or twice, and then start speeding it up or adding extra movement. Maybe I am just especially uncoordinated, but I can't keep up. It's going to take me many tries to learn a move before I can do it at the speed they show.
However, I definitely recommend this set of DVDs. Neena & Veena are the best - they have been dancing all of their lives and have studied throughout the world. They are beautiful and inspiring to watch.
If you want to learn "the sensual art of bellydance", choose this set.

As a bellydancer for over 10 years, I was happy to find this set. It seems that this art is becoming popular, and so there are many instructional dvds out there now, you will notice the release dates are all pretty new!
Anyway, these two know how to teach well, and they are great! I learned a few new things, and it is a fun workout as well.
Get this one if you really want to learn bellydance.

If you want to learn the art of belly dance, than this is for you! They show you what the move is supposed to look like then they break it down step by step. Veena and Neena break it down so good even if your uncoordinated(like me) you can do it.Right now I'm on "beyond basic dance" and so far I mastered most of the moves. I'm even taking actual belly dance lessons, so if it wasnt for these belly dance series, I'd be totally lost because my class moves at a faster rate!
