I have looked at and bought other belly dance DVD’s….. Even the last one looks like an amateur compared to Leyla. I will stick with Leyla and I’m planning on purchasing all her available disks” Shelly

Thank you so much for your incredible DVD. It is exactly what I had hoped for. You have done an incredible job of organizing hip work and making it practical. I am so inspired! From Donna, of Michigan for Hip Phylosophy DVD
Hello Leyla & Dan I just wanted to say Thank you. One  morning I was online and suddenly I found Leyla. And it was awsome.  I like how she dances. And Bellydance Village is everything I need. Thank you very much Leyla and Dan! Dayse, From Germany
It was really good to learn the posture while dancing an the hip movement required while doing so.I would love to learn more from you…Shalini
I love her videos and how she explains things. I wish I lived closer, as I would definitely be begging for lessons in person. I have lost over 10lbs so far with her free beginning videos online.  white lined paperI wish I lived closer, as I would definitely be begging for lessons in person. 😀
I’d have to say you guys have the best deal running with cost, content, and customer service.  What I like most about the site is the organization. I like the way the video categories are set up, both by level and below by topic. I also like that the videos that are there stay there and don’t disappear.  I know where to find them whenever I go.  The layout is very pleasing (for BellydanceVillage)

The Divine Unrest by Leyla Najma I have decided to give it (The Divine Unrest) 5 stars, plus another 5,000 stars. It is magnificent! Leyla’s writing is of the finest and most profound, a true milestone, in the history of dance literature..  Barbara Harmon Read more Divine Unrest Reviews Get The Divine Unrest on Amazon Kindle, or The Divine Unrest on Paperback

Anglia This is not your “everyday” same ole style of teaching/instruction, not the same moves taught over and over.  The clarity of instruction is outstanding.  Leyla breaks down move with all 4 sides demonstrated with each drill broken down clearly and in detail. If you’re a beginner you will love the introduction to new steps.  intermediate dancer learn new combinations and build core strength and strengthen your legs and quads.
