Well, not the newest ... it will be two years in about one month ... and I dance withOUT most of the bells and whistles, I do have a coined hip-scarf and some (inadequate) starter zills ...

I just LOVE belly dance. It is the only low impact dance form that positively impacts my health ...

Nothing wrong with using a DVD, but I am finding I have to up-modify my SharQui Level 2 dvd greatly ... yes, for cardio dance fitness ... even the series of classes I took recently were not of the Dance Troupe in Training type ... YMMV, but be forewarned ... even in a sophisticated, upscale neighborhood where others (I live the next nabe over) could afford and have previously afforded ALL the bells and whistles (priced out of the class, NOW; that had been a loss-leader sale deal I'd gotten in on) they went from out-zilling and out-veiling every belly dancer in the neighborhood; because Zumba exploded over there! The belly dance teacher is of Latin extraction, too!

Don't ask, I won't tell you any more ... lol ...

So far, I have 3 of the Bellydance Superstars compilations ... I do my own routines to it ...

I don't care if I remain technically a beginner - for now ...
