Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Based on the natural, organic motion of the human body, bellydance is easy to grasp, accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels, and looks fantastic on any body type. Even the basic vocabulary of bellydance you learn as a beginner is enough to let you express yourself through sophisticated and luscious movement – and look stunning!
In the You Can Bellydance! app from New York star dancer Neon:
• Learn two beautiful and simple dances – a FLUID slow dance and a lively PERCUSSIVE dance (drum solo);
• Step-by-step sections offer detailed explanation and demonstration of basic bellydance steps and ways to weave them together into attractive combinations;
• Learn and Practice sections offer a step-by-step breakdown of each combination and a presentation of the dance "from the top" with practice repetitions inserted, so you can follow Neon and learn the steps in real time;
• Practice sections feature a beat counter, helpful in learning dance rhythm and timing.
• Throughout the program, every section is clearly labeled onscreen with the dance and combination number and the names of the steps included.
Good but not the best
I own several belly dance videos and I would say this one is good but not the best. I feel the same with Neon, though I really enjoyed the second set of combination. I think it's expensive for what it's worth, I'd be buying more if it is half the price at least.
