AllisonBelly 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 understand! have been a part of other online instruction and I will tell you that no one can hold a candle to them.

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

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.

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

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

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

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! It’s also helped with my posture & helped me lose weight which has helped with my confidence!! Ari  Feb 9, 2012 I am doing pretty good and have pretty much everything down, except I am having some trouble with doing chest circles. I can do them to the left but going to the right is difficult for me for some reason. Any ideas on how I can help make that easier? Thank you so much Leyla! <3

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 across this. cant wait for the next video!
