    Default Clumsey girl need video.

    I have Aspergers syndrome, that is a light version of autisem. One of my problems is cordination problems, both hand eye cordination and dificulty getting all the parts of my body to work together, to make a long story short, I am slomsy. I have however desided to learn bellydancing. I have found out a class is not for me, not yet for I learn physical things slower than other pepole, and would not feel well there. What I am asking is do anyone have any ideas for good instruction videos for somone that is clumsey and learn slowly.

    Hi Venefica, Welcome to the forum! There are so many videos on the market and if video learning is what you need then, I recommend Neena and Veena's bellydance series. Not the exercise vids but thier instructional ones. I think you can orer them from their site:Identical Twin Belly Dancers and Fitness Experts - The Bellytwins. Also IAMED puts out excellent quality videos too. Take your time and enjoy yourself and come back to visit us.
    Happy Dancing

    Thank you for your reply. I have a set of three videos of them, it is the beginner video of the set there I have started whit and it works rather fine. I was just wondering if there is more good videos for beginners.

    Welcome, Venefica!

    We all feel clumsy doing something new until we get our muscles trained. Lord, you ought to see me on a snowboard. I had to get off because I was afraid my son and his friends would hurt themselves falling on the ground and laughing like that.

    In view of your hand-eye coordination challenges, regularly allow yourself to dance with your eyes closed, concentrating on reacting emotionally to the music and not worrying about style. I have my students do this, and it never fails to amaze me how much easier my beginners move when they are not distracted by visuals.
