If you're a beginning belly dancer looking for a beginning belly dance intructional video (and more) by a patient, skilled and experienced teacher who understands the unique nuances of teaching belly dancing on-line to the modern dancer but you don't want waste time on YouTube and like me believe the DVD has seen it's better day, then I've got something you're going to want to hear.
Once upon a time the DVD was a good thing. Certainly better than the VHS tape, but when you buy a DVD you get a DVD video. That's it!

In this day and age a waste of time, space and money - especially now with a mobile app you can have so much more than just video and have it conveniethly at your fingertips anytime you want it.
