Four Beginning Belly Dance Videos
Warm Up and Cool Down: Preparing your mind and body for training.
Olympic athletes and professionals from every sport and dancers alike know the importance of having a proper routine for warming up and cooling down.
Preparing your body is an essential precursor to training because it guards against nagging muscle pulls and strains. All of which will keep you from practicing and if you can’t practice you can’t get better.
Beginning Belly Dance Volume 1: Posture, Positioning and Thrusts
Beginning Belly Dance Volume I Leyla covers what are called the foundational movements; a step by step beginner friendly video that will teach you the fundamental movements of Egyptian style cabaret belly dancing covering;
Belly Dancing Cornerstones: The physical, emotional, spiritual and mental cornerstones of Belly Dancing. Belly Dancing is not just a movement of your body, but an expression of you, of who you are and you’re story.
Proper Positioning You’ll learn exactly how to position all parts of your body for Egyptian Cabaret style dancing. Proper positioning is critical to being able to control your movements and your body as you learn.
Basic Thrusts & Glute Control:, You’ll learn single and double thrusts and how to use these moves in a combination and how they come together so by the end of the DVD you will not only feel, but you will be Belly Dancing.
Beginning Belly Dancing Vol 2 – Layering, Abs, Pelvis Drops and Lifts
In Beginning Belly Dance Vol 2 you’ll start to learn the basics of how you will control, isolate & layer the movement of different parts of your body; your arms, chest and hips.
Layering is an Essential Skill Every Belly Dancer Must Have” Including,
2, 3 4 count and combination drills for your chest, abs and pelvic area; drills to develop strength, endurance and how to control these areas of your body individually.
How to move your chest, abs and pelvic area together and layer your movement from top to bottom. Layering is one of the skills that make Belly Dancing very appealing to your audience.
How to bring your chest, abs, pelvic movements together in a layer along with your hip combinations from Beginning Belly Dance Vol 1 to develop your sense of dancing.
Developing a sense of your body and the source of movement helps you develop muscle control; a key to being a good belly dancer.
Beginning Belly Dancing Vol 3 – Basics arms with writs twists, snake arms and fish hands
As much as you may want to exclusively focus on your hip work, your arms are a key part and every bit important when it comes to putting together a choreography that tells your story and your arms help focus the attention of your audience as well as express emotion.
The basic and proper role your arms should play in your dancing. When they should be positioned, used and why.
How to properly position your arms and your hands, so they compliment the other aspects of your dance, don’t get in the way or distract your audience from your story.
The classic “Snake Arms”, “Fish Hands” & “Wrist Twists” with specific exercises to develop your skills in each of these classic Belly Dance techniques.
Five Bonus Videos
In addition to the four Beginning Belly Dance collection of videos, the Beginning Belly Dance Mobile app includes five additional bonus videos to enhance your experience.
Footwork and Balance Video
It would be pretty boring if you danced in place all the time. Choreography that is entertaining and engages your audience means traveling across the stage.
Great dancers glide across the stage as they dance because they have masterful footwork and know how to stay balanced as they perform.
Choreography Help Video
I didn’t want to leave you with only the fundamentals of Beginning Belly Dance Vol 1, 2, and 3 without giving you a taste of choreography.
This class includes written text of the class you can download, print and use, as well as a free mp3 download of the same practice music Leyla uses in the video.
The purpose of this video is to provide a gentle, encouraging way for you to create your 1st choreography. It is not a definitive, A-Z instructional video on choreography, but instruction to help you think about and create a choreography.
Leyla’s Body of Work Performance Video
This thirty six minute video is a compilation of Leyla’s performances going back quite a few of years – way before the invention of digital video cameras. There are some real performance jewels from Oriental Potpourri as well as a show I produced called an “Evening of Love and Dance”.
The choreography is original and at times somewhat out of the box. This video is not only entertaining but you’ll gain an appreciation of how your personality and your music can be combined to create a very audience pleasing performance.
Belly Dance Stars of Egypt
As a beginning belly dancer you will stand on the shoulders of some phenomenal dancers . You’ll love taking in a bit of the rich history of this dance through this short series of videos.
This video was taken from film so it is not an HD video. None the less some of these performances are priceless and will give you a real appreciation for the history of the dance so you can have a basis to create your own history.
Free Practice Music
I want to do everything possible to help you. So I’m including three tracks of practice music you can download and use. This is the music I use in all my videos if you use it during practice time it will help you learn and absorb the movement more quickly.
Hip Phylosophy Curriculum
The Beginning Belly Dance Mobile app videos is powered by Leyla’s Hip Phylosophy Belly Dance Curriculum .
Leyla has been teaching for over 26 years. She is a student friendly teacher who will break down and explain all the moves slowly from the front, side and back.
The Hip Phylosophy Belly Dance Curriculum is unique; it’s a dance like you, not a dance like me curriculum based on helping you create a style of your own.

What’s the Catch?
A frequent question is how can we offer an amazing amount of content for less than half the price of equivalent DVDs?
- It’s Digital: Streaming video the way that we do is incredibly affordable. Much more so than distributing physical product.
- Lower Overhead: For every DVD we sell, there’s a accounting that has to take place. If we sell 100 DVDs we have 100 transactions to account for. This adds up to hours of work. However selling 100 copies of the app results in just 1 transaction from Google and 1 from Apple. So what took hours to do with a DVD takes minutes to do with an app.
DVDs are old technology. They’ve been around for over 20 years. They have been an excellent alternative to VHS tapes but now it’s time they move aside for the better, faster, cheaper alternative of the mobile app.
