At age of 6 one Saturday morning I was watching TV eating a bowl of fruit loops. I decided that the cartoon at the time just didn’t cut it so I changed the channel and low and behold I came across belly dance on our local station. I stared mesmerized … [continue]

Works On Her Dance When She Wants
Belly Dance Village! is the one place where I can go to not only get instruction but support that is above and beyond! Having access to all video’s is very important and the fact that I do not have to wait for a DVD to be delivered to my front door means that I can work on my dance right away! Leyla has helped me with my dance in making everything she does easy and in a way that you can understa…
Loves Moves Broken Down
“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.”………….
Best 10 Minutes Ever Spent
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!
Best Deal Going
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)
“Viewing your videos have inspired me to continue with belly dancing .you have shown a professional motivation and care in teaching” Thank you for your assistance, Shadow
Posture & Movement

Should be in Every Dancers Library
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…
Exactly What a Beginner Needs
I’m 23 and have wanted to learn how to belly dance for years. Unfortunately here are no classes in my area. I have tried many times to learn with DVDs as well as online videos and have never had any success until I came across your site. I’m finally understanding!!! the way you break down the movements and the details you go into are amazing and exactly what a beginner needs…I am so happy I came a…
Loves Sensual Authentic Moves
Now when I am m going to learn Leyla’s style& combinations I have to say I really love them. I think combinations are very good because I really can learn to use different directions natural way. I really love Hip Mastery Vol 2 soft combinations!I can see her movements are very sensual and I think more close that old fashion authentic BellyDance style what I love. Very good day both you and Leyl…
Loves Front, Side & Back
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.
Side to Side Makes it Easier
I love the way you are showing how to do these moves. By showing the moves from the side, it makes it easier to see what you are doing . You have tremendous talent. I look forward to trying to learn more.
Thank you, Pam
I have searched for many Belly Dancing teachers for 2 years now but you are exceptional and you do stand out from the rest”…Karamia
Learned More From a Free Video
” Today I got the free 25 min lesson and I learned more about how to put moves together in that video that I have in my two years of independent study”.
The Divine Unrest, My Stores & Views on Belly Dance
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
WOW! WOW! That’s all I can say after viewing your Hip Phylosophy DVD. You are such a skilled dancer Leyla. I feel so fortunate to have met you and to have you teach me, I hope our dance community realizes what we have here.

Best Series for Egyptian Cabaret Combinations
Hip Mastery is the best series I’ve found so far for teaching intermediate belly dancers how to put together Egyptian Cabaret moves together into memorable combinations.
PS: I just finished Hip Mastery Vol 2 and started Hip Mastery 3 and boy are my hips are tired. I’m getting more flexibility and movement in many, many years.
No More Back Pain
Hey Leyla! I am SO happy I found your website!!! I used to have a problem with back pain but since I started your lessons, it’s gone way down! When I have back pain I practice dancing & it goes away!

Actually Learning Moves
Leyla , I really liked this video. I could feel the muscles being worked. I like how you broke it down and so that someone who has never belly danced before can follow along and actually learn the moves….Deanna
Loves Breakdown from Slow to Fast
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 first ran across Leyla Najmas website not long after I started dancing. I ordered the Hip Phylosophy and started using a couple of the combinations to practice. I live in small-town, Texas, with no local teachers. After quite a frustrating spring and summer driving two hours one way to attend weekly classes, I called Leyla.We visited quite a bit by phone and email about what I wanted out of vide…
Sticking with Leyla
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
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 D…

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.

Detailed, Specific Instructions
Very detailed and specific instructions.I’ve viewed a few beginning videos and you were the only one who gave specifics for how to hold arms-fingers, and pelvis. Most just tell you to slightly bend knees and hold arms out.
Lost 10 Pounds
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. I wish I lived closer, as I would definitely be begging for lessons in person. 😀
Not Your Everyday Same Ole Style of Teaching
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 a…
I am so happy I decided to have a personal video made just for me. I started by filling out a little questionnaire on Leyla’s web site describing what level of dancer I was and just what I was looking to achieve from my class. About 30 minutes later Leyla called me on the phone and we talked in depth about everything. In about four days my video was up and running and I was in shimmy heaven!
Easy to Understand & Follow Instruction
I just wanted to “thank” for de DVD and CD I just received yesterday.I love them!
Leylas DVD is wonderful. Easy to understand and follow., since my english is not too good. The music CD is of great help for practising. I have already already started using them.. 🙂
