    Re: Khaleegy Instructional DVD

    Well I think it IS part of this fantasy thing, the "exotic" woman with long hair.
    I do think it is the beauty ideal in much of the Arab world - a woman having thick long hair. Like so many mothers won't be ok with the daughter cutting it :)
    But on the other hand Mideasterners are very much for everything being perfectly cared for - including hair being cut every few weeks so that it looks movie-perfect. So I guess that is where you're coming from regarding hair that's long is pretty only when it's very well cared for.. I do like extra long hair on some people. But in general its safer to not go for the hip-length because it looks perfect only on few people.

    Re: Khaleegy Instructional DVD

    I think it's a beauty ideal in many parts of the world
    long hair is classic and beautiful, when well-kept ,
    it's attractive on most women
    I think bra-strap length to mid-back length, (a little shorter than waist length) looks good on the vast majority of women
    waist length looks good on many if then ends are healthy and if it's well kept
    hip/tailbone length- I think few women look good with it
    I just don't understand bders that will have their waist length hair that doesn't look good when they can cut it and still have LONG hair, but have it look much better and healthier
    but anyway, samia gamal is a testament to that short hair won't stand in the way of a dance career
    and many people make it seem like, oh I'm a belly dancer now, gotta grow my hair long....

    Re: Khaleegy Instructional DVD

    Hi,
    I just wanted to add, that the Khaleegy DVD is well worth buying. It covers the basic khaleegy steps and gestures. Then it is all put together in a choreography. The back of the DVD cover, lists all the chapters with the individual steps/ choreography. 29 chapters in all. DVD includes steps like the push back step, the side scoop, basic traveling step, shoulders bumps, khaleegy arms, hair and head movements, 1/2 turns and spins and much more. The learning section of the DVD is 52 minutes and 43 seconds long. Plus in the end, bonus tracks (DVD total playing time 1 hour and 18 minutes). Also included is a booklet, covering glossery of terms and information on the khaleegy used in the DVD, Khaleegy technique and the steps used and the lyrics of the song used in the choreography (arabic/ english). It is a well organized and simple to use. Anyone from a beginner to an advanced student or teacher will enjoy using this instructional DVD. The DVD plays in US NTSC DVD players. I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars..g.:.
    Tammy

    Re: Khaleegy Instructional DVD

    I have an old Khaleegy instruction Vhs from Amera somewhere in my collection. I suppose its diferent to her new DVD??? I bought it on ebay a few years back I think. I havent watched it in awhile but I remember I really liked it.

    I also have her drum solo instruction and honestly I didnt really like it. There is no talking on it and she does a few drum solos and then it gets broken down somehow. I cant remember exactly because I havent watched it in a while.

    Ive done a few workshops with her when she came to Melbourne and I really enjoyed them, I learnt alot and had lots of fun. She was very pleasant and sweet.

    Im thinking of getting her khaleegy but am worried its the same as the one Ive already got.

    Edit to say, Just realised its not the same. took a peek at the youtube vid.....hmm another to add to my list

    Fast forward a bit, Mohamed's dvd was shot in Yasmina of Cairo's private studio in her apartment. Yasmina had rented it out to Mohamed's girlfriend Diana while Yasmina was in London for a few months. The neighbours started complaining about the loud music.

    Yasmina has hit the roof because she left strict instructions that there was to be no commerical filming in the studio. In the trailer you can still see the photos of other dancers on the wall.

    And as you also know Yasmina and Amera and very close friends having worked in Cairo at the same time. So there is no way in the world Yasmina would have allowed a competing DVD to be shot in her apartment, especially without commerical compensation.
    interesting
    so diana esposito is his girlfriend
    no wonder she dances in the video
    I'm saying this because she is NOT very good ..l;,
    love is blind I guess
    he should have gotten a more skilled dancer for his dvd
    it's irritating watching her even in the trailer!

    For your information,
    First: when i was in Sydney I didn’t know anything about Amera’s Khaliji DVD, and she DID NOT talk to me about her plan of making a Khaliji DVD… I was in Sydney in February 2009 and I made my DVD on July 2009!! so you don't know what are you talking about.. you know noting...

    Second: I paid Yasmina to use her studio for my DVD recording..

    Third: none of this is your business. And if you have any interesting story and some Rumors about other people to tell.. you can keep it privet….. if you know nothing don’t talk..

    One Andalusian dvd.

    And now this one - does anyone know what the 4th one is? Or is there a separate Saidi? thanks!!!

    Mohamed, can you tell us if there is a 4th dvd that is perhaps out of print, or not available on your website?

    Latifa, I suspect that there was a typo and that you meant this website: https://www.hollywoodmusiccenter.com/ - right? :-)

    But suffice to say that subsequently after that post, it is correct that Yasmina did get paid. And yes there is room for more than one dvd in the market place.

    I wish you all the best with your DVD.
    Knowing you from this forum and always appreciating your friendly and open attitude, I'm sure you did not mean any harm. And I must say I have much respect for your responding the way you did, having the character to say you were wrong!

    Re: Khaleegy Instructional DVD

    P.s. for what it's worth: I own both dvds. Mohammad's Shaabi part additionally to the Khaleegy choreography ALONE is worth the purchase for me. That aside, the two khaleegy dvds are VERY different.
    I love the style, two excellent dvds is WAY too little. Yes it is correct, there are dozens of dvds on other matters, and even on saidi there are relatively few. I love folklore inspired dance or strictly folklore the most, so at least for my target market segment (which I believe most on here belong to, too) there is room for WAY more.
    I still hope for the Iraqi khaleegy option :)

    Re: Khaleegy Instructional DVD

    hehe you won't believe me but there's at least a hundred I still want :) mostly the higher priced ones like Little Egypt, and also individual productions like Shareen al Safy, Faten Munger, Faten Salama, Soraya (New Jersey) etc. And I am interested in Latin American dancers/teachers too, but own very little :)
