Rating: ****

Comments: This is a very uplifting and energetic album with awesome vocals and beat! It is great for bellydancing, and is also entertaining for non-bellydancing occasions. Great also for haflas!

[ Magical Motion ]



Bellydance! Magical Motion

A Complete Beginners' Course in one video (approx. 1 hour)

Rating: *****

Comments: This is the original Bellydance! video (there are several) that is a world's bestseller. Great for the absolute beginner, students wanting to strengthen basic technique, and teachers looking for classroom ideas. Atéa & Friends present a comprehensive overview of the foundation moves of traditional and modern bellydance. It also has great costuming (over 50 costumes!), finger cymbals, and the history of belly dance! I believe that Magical Motion videos are the absolute best for belly dancing! I will add more and more Magical Motion videos here!

Price: The price for this exceptionally long video is $25.00 US currency at magicalmotion.com.
