Bellydance Egyptian Style: The Baladi, by Ranya Renée

Wow! Fantastic new DVD by WDNY. This 5-hour-long 2-DVD set covers the structure, rhythms and music of typical baladi progressions, teaches the essential technique and dance vocabulary of baladi, and provides drills for developing your own improvisational practice. This is a must have for anyone interested in modern Baladi. Lots of musical depth. Very clever structure - ideal for learning to interpret typical Baladi phrases. 5 stars.

If I wasn't so sick I would write a longer review!!!
