    Hard to believe!

    Everything is this package is great and I thank everybody who wrote a review about this product. I did not know about this book and when I found it on the net, I red the reviews which rated this product very highly. Then on my trip to USA, I bought it and I can't believe how complete and usefull it is. Very good explanations, very good music on CD so I'm glad I bought it and I will surely recommend it to all the other students in my belly dance's class.

    Valuable Resource

    As a long time teacher and performer of ATS Bellydance, I have to say this is a marvelous package (well, except for the shmarmy belly jewel, but Carolena had nothign to do with that). Of particular interest to me was the dance sequence at the end of the DVD--so helpful and inspiring! It is always a treat to see FCBD dance. The book gives clear and concise explanations of the movements--and the visualizations are surely going to find their way into my teaching. Thank you FCBD!!

    Yay! ATS gets out there!

    I saw this in my local B&N store yesterday and grabbed in like a starving madwoman. I've been a student of ATS for about a year, but really a chunk of about 4 months was taken out of my learning by circumstances more or less out of my control. (Fortunately, I'm starting again in a week. I NEED TO DANCE!) It's a good basic start in ATS bellydance, and I just knew when I saw Carolena on it that it'd be marvelous. I have advanced beyond this level, but it's nice to have it to tide me over when I'm not in class, and remind me of those basics that can be so easy to forget! The book is simple, easy to understand, and informative, and the music is great. The zils are tinny pieces of blah, but hey. They're zils, and the whole thing is under $15. Y'ain't getting a set of Saroyans for that. Despite that, they're there, so I'm not knocking any points. I wish I had been taught zils from the get-go, as they can be hard to pick up later if you're not used to moving with them. Best of luck and enjoy this great set!

    Exactly what you need to get started!

    This is a GREAT deal! A DVD and a CD and a book and some zills and the belly jewel for under $15! (Ok, so I'll probably never wear the jewel, but hey!) The DVD has just enough of everything to give you a broad palette of moves to work with, and the production quality is clear with good camera angles. You can see both front and back, since Carolena and her troupemates stand in front of a mirror. The CD is also great, b/c it gives you the same rythms that are used on the DVD. What I especially like is that the rythms are basic, so if you find yourself having to practice the same move over and over in order to get it thru your thick skull (like myself) you've got the beat you need to do that without being distracted by something too complex. The intellectual side of me really enjoyed the book- everything is laid out and Carolena's explanations give you a place to start in your head and something to think about while you're trying to establish a muscle memory during practice. If you want to learn this dance, get this set!

    So good for such a cheap price

    This set was recommended to me by a fellow belly dancer lover on a Belly Dancing Community on Live Journal. On a whim I went out and bought it at my local B&N since it was on sale for 14.99 plus bought a copy for my girlfriend for Xmas. I'm so glad I did! This set is full of beautiful music on the DVD and CD(that is separated for slow & fast movement practice as well as dance suites), has very clear instructions in the book and DVD, and has Zills that are actually of pretty good quality. I would definitely recommend this set to anyone who is looking to work on their belly dancing on their own. By reading the book & watching the DVD it's not hard to get the idea.

    Wonderful book, DVD, CD, & zil set - great value!

    Kudos to Carolena for putting together such a wonderful package. Book is clearly written & illustrated, the DVD has clear instruction & performance segments, the belly jewel is cute, and the zils, while starter quality, have a very pretty design. I plan to recommend this set to my students for its wonderful quality & superb value. The next best thing to studying in person with Carolena!

    Art of Belly Dance: A Fun and Fabulous Way to Get Fit

    'The Art of Belly Dance' is fabulous. Not only does it contain a 96 page full color instructional book, but, it also comes with an DVD, CD with 13 choice tracks, a set of student zils and a belly jewel, all for only $14.95! This is really quite a bargain. The DVD has highlights from several of her instructional videos. This kit is comprehensive, to say the least... a wonderful introduction, history and brief section on dance as fitness, costuming info, a music section with descriptions of some of the main instruments and rhythms, tips on dancing to music, some stretches, posture, moving meditation, a good selection of slow and fast steps, zil technique, simple transitions and composition and a suggested choreography. Highly recommended!!!

    Excellent DVD, great bargain!

    I picked this up at the FCBD studio on a recent trip to San Francisco, and got to talk about it with Carolena herself. In short, it's an amazing bargain and a great workout. It has become my practice DVD on days when I can't make it to class. The camera work is very good and the section on zils is extensive. Plus it includes a long FCBD performance at the end to inspire you, and a cute little stick-on belly jewel. Gotta love it!

    Art of Belly Dance: A Fun and Fabulous Way to Get Fit

    Carolena Nericcio is a world class dancer and instructor. Her instructional DVDs are top notch. She has an exquisite sense of style and composition and I am sure this latest endeavor of hers will be no exception! I highly recommend this author/dancer/ instructor/certified trainer!
