Excellent DVD for advanced students seeking a challenge

This DVD is unusual in that the dance instructor (Zoe Jakes) isn't the only one giving instruction!   We also get the benefit of instruction direct from the drummer (Issam Houshan).   For each section, Issam explains the rhythms, Zoe breaks down the moves, then the two are put together.

Unusually for a Tribal class, the warm-up isn't yoga-based (which makes a pleasant change - personally I don't think yoga alone is a good enough warm-up for dance).   Apparently this is Zoe's standard warm-up for all her classes and personally, I think this DVD was worth it for the warm-up alone.

However, the choreography is something else again.  Complicated, frustrating, difficult to follow - yes, but that's only because it's so rich and complex.  Highly recommended for advanced Fusion dancers seeking to expand their horizons.
