    Default Which instructional DVDs/Videos do you have? (2012 Version)

    I'm a few days... ok, almost two weeks late, but with Mosaic's approval I'm starting a new thread for instructional dvds/videos.

    Here's my in-dire-need-of-culling collection :



    (Actually, there are at least two WDNY videos missing, my mother has them .)

    I probably have enough videos to do a different one every day for a month, however, what usually happens is I pick one or two and work them to death.

    Current rotation (time permitting ):
    • Shape Up and Hip Out (Jillina, workout)
    • Belly by Sandra Vol. 2 (technique/drilling)
    • Bellydance Egyptian Style, The Baladi (Ranya Renee, technique/lecture)
    • Instructional Bellydance with Jillina Vol. 1 (choreography)


    ETA: ...aaaand I just realized I carried over the typo in the title

    Oooooooooh, you have a few there that I don't have... Last count I had approximately 300 bellydance-related dvds, including instructionals, documentaries, performances and movies/tv shows with middle eastern themes or bellydance in them. I don't feel guilty about that though because it's a lending library as well.

    Oh, my. I am struggling with feelings of inadequacy. I only have 5 dvds and only two of those are how-tos. I had two more (including Dolphina ) but put them in the goodies box that went around the US a couple of years ago.

    Jenna's Heartbeat of Belly Dance and Belly Dance Basics and Beyond remain.

    There's no reason to feel inadequate, I admire your discipline. My husband strongly wishes I'd exercise that type of restraint where bellydance dvds are concerned.

    @ Darshiva:
    I love the pic, though now I want a kitty to plop in front of my collection.

    Anan is my guard kitty - she's always on watch in my dance room. That said, because the window is BEHIND the dvds, she's not as gentle on them as I'd like.

    Default Egyptian all the way

    I want to get rid of most of my DVD collection as I concentrate purely on Egyptian now. What's the best way of on-selling?

    As for my current collection (that I would never dream of parting with!) they are:


    - Leila of Cairo's "Bellydance for Beginners" (I LOVE this one!!)
    - Ranya's DVDs (must have)
    - Shona Hagan (a really sweet and charming choreo ala Egyptian style)
    - Sausan's "Dances by Suheir Zaki" volumes 1 & 2 (another must have for Suheir fans)

    I have a long list of "wants" such as Mohamed Shahin, Habiba (the real one!) but I need to get rid of my unwanted ones first.

    Habiba, as you may have guessed from the above pic, it's 'let Darshiva know what you're selling'.

    Most of these are rarely used or viewed only once. I've procrastinated long enough putting this list together so here goes:

    These DVDs come in the original case:

    1. Pops, Locks & Shimmies with Sadie and Kaya
    2. Pops, Locks & Shimmies with Sadie and Kaya 2
    3. Contemporary Belly Dance and Yoga Conditioning with Ariellah
    4. Lock, Roll & Flutter with Suzanna Del Vecchio
    5. Hip-notic Belly Dance with Kaya
    6. 5-Layers from the Group Up with Nadia


    The following are without the original case as I placed them in a DVD folder to save space

    1. Bellydance for Beginners with Suhaila – Fitness Fusion Jazz
    2. Instructional Bellydance with Jillina – Level 3 (this doesn’t seem to work on all players but I have had no problem with my current (and new) Phillips DVD player and my computer)
    3. Thrillin’ Drillin’ with Sadie
    4. Abs-olutely Fabulous with Princess Farhana

    I have more DVD titles in Australia but I am currently in Asia. However, I will be returning to Sydney next month so will add to the list.
    In addition to the above, I have a few non-bellydance DVDs that might be of interest (all without the original covers however – not sure if I kept them in Sydney though so will check):

    1. Island Girl Dance Fitness Workout for Beginners – Hula Abs & Buns
    2. Island Girl Dance Fitness Workout for Beginners – Tahitian Hip Hop
    3. Island Girl Dance Fitness Workout for Beginners – Tahitian Cardio
    4. Bollywood Workout with Honey Kalaria
    5. Ballet Conditioning

    Back home in Sydney I have Neena & Veena’s collection and another 3-DVD collection of a well-known Am-Cab dancer whose name escapes me right now.
