    Default Turkish style

    I guess this is the place to post this....:o

    I have a question: who has seen Artemis' new video through IAMED? I know she is well respected here in the US.... if you've seen it, what do you think? I would like to learn Turkish (authentic Turkish really) but I don't know of any teachers in my area who teach it....

    I feel your pain. I haven't seen the video yet, but we don't have any Turkish style dancers in my area either. Frustrating. Artemis is wonderful though. I'm anxious to read some reviews.

    Yes Artemis is a treasure.
    The people that live near her are very lucky!!!
    I live in Greece just a hop to Turkey and even thinking to go to States to have lessons with Artemis !!!

    If anyone knows of any reviews posted, even if you yourself have not seen the video, please let me know. Maria, I have always heard that she is amazing and probably the best (or one of- no offense to anybody!) Turkish style dancer in the US. (Maybe I should consider a road trip!) I think her video is probably excellent but I want to be sure before I buy it.... you know how it is, sometimes the teacher might be great but it doesn't always come across in the video due to editing, etc...

    Artemis for sure is one of the best (or THE best) Turkish style instructors in the World and I am also looking forward on her DVD (I love also her "Artemis dances" videos) - but how about Sema Yildiz? Does anyone have experience studying with her? She is coming here to Singapore in August and now I am struggling whether to choose her workshops or workshops by some Egyptian masters also heading this way...

    (BTW I changed my user name from old forum as not to confuse me with the Afsana magazine I am editing)

    Thank you, Aeesha, that is helpful. I've decided that I'm going to go ahead and fork out the cash for this DVD. It sounds like it will be a good introduction to Turkish style.

    I bought it today. I *despise* waiting for something to ship. So impatient, but I think this is going to be worth the wait. Cheers

    I know the feeling... I get so impatient, like a kid really. I haven't bought it yet because I am waiting for payday but if you get it before I do, please let me know what you think.

    Sorry to hijak the thread, but it does relate to Turkish dance. If you are looking for a performance dvd of dancers from Turkey, please read my post in "Other Dance" for a detailed description of my ongoing experiences with a vender of Turkish dvds on ebay. (The vender is based in the UK). The thread is titled "Warning About Grand Bazaar of Turkey on ebay.
