Bellydance For Body Shaping: Abs – Belly Dance Fitness Workout
Another cringe-worthy DVD cover!
A pity, because this is a serious DVD for intermediate to advanced belly dancers - not for beginners, nor anyone wanting a shimmy and a giggle.
There are only three 15-minute abs workouts on this DVD, but they are intense and effective. The aim is to strengthen your abs - it's assumed you already know the basic moves, which is why I say it's not for anyone seeking instruction. There's also a 2-minute routine - again, fast and definitely not for novices. Although it's presented as a fitness-style workout, all the moves used are bellydance moves.
If you're looking for a DVD to drill your abs, this is a good choice. Neon is a competent teacher who presents the material well. I also like the progress bar and the diagrams showing the muscles that should be working.
It does seem a pity that the cover will attract entirely the wrong audience to buy this belly dancing DVD. Neon's clubbing-style outfit and the New Age-y music may also ann0y the purists. However, if you're looking for abs drills to improve your bellydance technique, this is a good choice - Shira gives it five stars.
