rose-and-cleo1I 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! Rose….Philadelphia

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 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
Sticking with Leyla
Belly-Dancer-Jami-ChanceI 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 video classes.She then went to work and produced made-to-order video classes for me.Leylas videos have been wonderful.They address issues that are specific to my needs and the production quality is great – I feel like I’m in class with her. She is available by phone and email to answer my questions or address my concerns and always calls after a new class to make sure I understand everything that she …

belly-dance-choreography-by-leyla-najma Many of these combinations and cosmically inspired ideas I consider as real gems. I am confident that with the way I chapter and organize everything that you will get the help you need or at least feel free to take from my ideas. Many of these combinations and cosmically inspired ideas I consider as real gems. I am confident that with the way I chapter and organize everything that you will get the help you need or at least feel free to take from my ideas. If you are really familiar with Leyla’s dance vocabulary, this will be fun. I had to look up several terms to understand what move was being explained. A great way to practice at home and come up with your own versions. Mary J. Powell “Nevermore” Belly Dance Choreography is available on Kindle for $4.99 and on paperback. The book is …

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)

julie-graceYears 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…
