Love Potion – The Bellydance Workout
This is a sequel to the Luscious bellydance DVD.
I do wish this group of instructors (Neon, Blanca and Sarah Skinner) would stop using such silly names for their productions! It means dancers like me are less likely to take them seriously, which is a pity as they've put together some serious, challenging workouts.
I did find myself getting irritated by the New Age music, cheesy section titles ("Goddess", "Creative Flame"), and "mantras" spoken before each section. However, if you're into the whole "goddess empowerment" aspect of belly dancing, you'll probably love those feel-good aspects and appreciate the fact that the dancers are fully costumed.
Personally, I think you'd have to be a pretty disciplined beginner to work your way through the "Beginner Flow" section - it's a good 50 minutes of solid instruction, which takes much longer by the time you've stopped, started and rewound to absorb all the information. For more experienced belly dancers, the practice and instruction sections are good revision -and the 40 minute workout will work you hard!
