Belly Dancing today is different than it was twenty years ago, and with today's modern conveniences, women are finding dance classes are just a click away. As a dance teacher, I found that I wanted belly dance to be available to all women who might not otherwise be able to learn because of location, economy or family. Thus began my journey with … [continue reading]
“I have been dancing since 1993 and over the years, I have studied with many dancers and I have purchased many videos. After all the wasted money spent on worthless videos that promise to teach how to break down the moves and then use them in choreography. Until now, I had given up hope of finding such a thing.”………….

I just wanted to thank you, I love your combinations and breakdown from slow to fast and from the back makes a huge difference in learning. Nancy
I just received and viewed your Hip Phylosophy DVD and I want to thank you and let you know how very pleased I am with your product. You are an excellent teacher and I am certain that the students who view your DVD will be inspired by your technique and style. (for Hip Phylosophy DVD) Thanks” Sarita
Love it Love it Love it. It is so awesome that it was made just for me. I really like the amount of repetition and I like how Leyla does things facing front, side, and back. Yeah!!! I love that the first 2 combos (haven’t watched the whole thing yet) involve ami’s. I know how to do them but I rarely use them. (Not sure why). Now I get to really practice and use them.
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
I feel like I’m in a serious dance class actually learning the art of BellyDance; you appear serious about the instruction and are not trying to be all cutesy (which is nice). Granted I’ve only seen Hip Mastery 1 , it does cue me into how the others will be delivered; I will be getting to them as soon as I can do the first DVD’s moves quickly…Zumba ain’t got nothing on you! Is there anything I can do to help get the word out, because Leyla these are good and need to be in every dancer’s library. Kimberly
I’m a first timer in belly dancing (in dancing in general actually). this video is so easy to follow and I enjoy learning it. …Ghzeei for Belly Dance Basics DVD
Years ago when I first became interested in Belly Dance I attended a show in Albuquerque, NM called Oriental Potpourri with a friend. I had taken a few classes at my local Spa and had some private lessons with a Turkish Folk Belly Dance teacher. As I sat in the audience and watched dancer after dancer and troupe after troupe I began to understand that there were so many different styles of Belly Dance and I was thoroughly entertained by all the dancers and I thought there was beauty to all the styles. However there was one dancer that stood out from the rest and I was captivated and in awe. Leyla Najma stole the show in my eyes. I had to know who this performer was. I looked through the program and found her name and went home and immediately searched the web for her in hopes that I could…
I just watned to say that this is probably the best 10 minutes I’ve ever spent. Even though this is only beginning moves and it was a short amount of time, I can really, really feelmy core and muscies….and not in a sore way either. This is so helpfuful. THANK YOU! Bree
