    I don't really do anything extra on top of my bellydance.

    I walk everywhere in town (because it's 30 minutes across from widest point to widest point) and teach two classes a week. So the only "extra" I do is a couple of hours or practice teaching each week and my own personal practice time.

    I can't use dance as a workout anymore. If I tried, it would have to be for a very long time at a high intensity. I don't own any workout style belly dance videos. I do other physical stuff and change it up frequently.

    (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

    That just put my tiny collection to shame! I have Ruby's floor work DVD, Rachel Brice's Serpentine and arms DVDs and I have Sadie's Complete Bellydance DVD I'm not sure what other DVD to get next. I don't like fusion bellydance really so I think I will stick with more from Sadie. I've had instruction outside of the DVDs too but DVDs are convenient.

    Amazon.com: Belly Dance For Beginners: Leila, Michael Wohl: Movies & TV

    Got mine and worked with it. Nice video yeah? I'll recommend this one for my beginning students to practice with at home. It's structured in a similar way to my eight week beginner session.

    And just a reminder for those of you with fewer DVDs, it isn't really the quantity of the videos you have, but the quality of the ones you've got and how you work with them that counts. A lot of great DVDs on your book shelf doesn't improve your dancing unless you actually use them actively..

    I've got a lot of dodgy ones in my collection (yes, this is where I spend my bellydancing dollar) but there's always a use for every dvd - even if it's just a drinking game.

    For me personally, the big benefit of my library is that I share it. It's my own personal collection, but I make it available to my students as well.

    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.
    Hi,

    May I ask - how do you like the 'Lock, Roll & Flutter with Suzanna Del Vecchio' dvd? Is it done comprehensively...? The title sounds great, but unfamiliar w/ Del Vecchio
