Seven Veils – Romantic Bellydance (2008)
First a word of warning - this DVD will not teach you how to use one veil, let alone seven! The veil work is very basic and in fact, some of the veils are just scarves.
What it will teach you is a choreography for a Dance of the Seven Veils, by belly dancer Sarah Skinner - who, if you ask me, should know better!
The routine starts with Sarah swathed in seven veils which she gradually removes, one by one. At the end of the dance, she's still fully clothed in her belly dance costume, but frankly I felt it was too much like a striptease - especially as she finishes lying on the floor.
One gets the feeling this is aimed at the non-bellydancer who wants to dance something sexy for her man. For instance, there's advice on how to put together a home-made costume, and a cheesy "audience interaction" segment which is obviously aimed at entertaining a husband or boyfriend. Which is fine, but I'm not sure who the audience is meant to be. Some of the moves would be beyond a complete novice - and an experienced belly dancer probably wouldn't need the help.
