I really like Neon's Instant Belly dancer, though I would not like that one to be my only dvd.... She explains the technique of the moves like noone else, and surely the graphics helps! But in addition I would really love to learn combos! To put together even the simplest moves gives a great boost to a beginner! I am looking at her other DVDs... (surely not gothic one )She may genuinely like the music she uses, or it may have been an economical choice, I have no idea. I know that as I have been looking into music for my performance video the costs of using music from a label are very high. For example, Smithsonian folkways wanted over 500 dollars to use one of George Abdo's songs. When you are looking at 12 or so tracks etc. that adds up. Maybe she had the music composed for her, or the artist gave her permission to use it for free or at low cost etc. Just a thought.
I agree. I'm not much for Neon's aesthetic, but everything is laid out well, clearly visible, described well, and the price is right.Hi,
we carry all of Neon's DVD's in our store so I've had a chance to look at them. The music in Neon's video's are also not to my taste but her instruction is very clear and the production quality is quite high and her stuff is reasonable price wise. I've got some clips of the DVD's up, not all yet, but you could take a peek and see what you think Instructional Belly Dance Videos
It is so difficult to make out heads or tails of all those thousands of istructional DVD's out there! It is best if a preview videoclip is available...
