    Buy "Bellydance Superstars Live In Paris At The Folies" instead

    I was so disappointed in this. I own all the other BDSS DVD and those by the individual dancers, as well. The solos are simply in-a-studio (or some lovely setting) solos, danced TO the camera. The title of this makes it sound like it is part of their European tour (ie: stage performances) when it is not. The two "cuts" available are not terribly different and feel more like the producer of this DVD wanted to add additional quantity than quality. The other reviewer states: "Additional, backstage footage captured live in Monaco offers a look at just how these talented dancers prepare for the show and wind down after a particularly intense performance." Wow, doesn't that sound exciting! It would be, if that was what it actually shows. Instead, we get terrible photography of the dancers applying their make-up (hard to get much appreciation of this when the camera is BEHIND and to the side of the gals) and describing a piece of jewelry here or there. It feels like the viewer is an interruption (which they are!) in the dancer's prep for a show. They need to be focusing on the performance and, instead, they have this camera right in their face, focusing on them and breaking this quiet time. They talk of how tiring it is and how the main dancers are rehearsing for the "Solos" DVD all the time and they just sound worn-out. As far as the "winding down" portion: a short, lousy home video of the gals out on a boat in the harbor on a windy, rather drizzly-looking grey day. They don't look happy (Sonia looks positively SAD and ready to cry in one shot), they look tired and worn-out. They certainly DON'T look like they are having any kind of good time! More of "I don't feel like smiling for the camera" and "Why did we let Miles talk us into this?" I've seen these fine dancers in live performance. They are AMAZING. Talented, beautiful and wonderful ambassadors for this ancient and unique form of dance. This DVD is not a good showcase for these lovely performers. Spend your money on the "BDSS Live In Paris At the Folies" instead. It gives a much better feel and image of what talented dancers the BDSS really are. Rather than the two "cuts", I think it would have been nice to learn, in their own words, a little more about where each dancer came from that led them all the way to this tour in Europe. Their fans love them and like knowing that, behind the glitter and stage lights, are real women that worked hard to reach this point in their dancing lives. C'mon Miles, do better next time and let's see the BDSS having some fun on a tour and YOU telling the world how wonderful they are!
