Testimonials for Leyla

Very detailed and specific instructions.I’ve viewed a few beginning videos and you were the only one who gave specifics for how to hold arms-fingers, and pelvis. Most just tell you to slightly bend knees and hold arms out. Great instructing

Leyla , I really liked this video. I could feel the muscles being worked. I like how you broke it down and so that someone who has never belly danced before can follow along and actually learn the moves….Deanna

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 s…

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 b…

I love the way you are showing how to do these moves.  By showing the moves  from the side, it makes it easier to see what you are doing .  You have tremendous talent.  I look forward to trying to learn more. Thank you, Pam

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

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
Hi Leyla and Dan, amiraI am very glad I did your online home study course. I will do the next one for sure. This form of study gives me a strong motivation, and sense of duty fo attend and to do my excercise on Saturday……nevertheless the DVDs from both classes are must have items. Thank you so much for your leadership, and for sharing and caring. I am looking forward to next classes!

BarbPricePictureLove it Love it Love it. It is so awesome that it was made just for me. I really like the amount of repetition and I like how Leyla does things facing front, side, and back. Yeah!!! I love that the first 2 combos (haven’t watched the whole thing yet) involve ami’s. I know how to do them but I rarely use them. (Not sure why). Now I get to really practice and use them.

minnaNow when I am m going to learn Leyla’s style& combinations I have to say I really love them. I think combinations are very good because I really can learn to use different directions natural way. I really love Hip Mastery Vol 2 soft combinations!I can see her movements are very sensual and  I think more close that old fashion authentic BellyDance style what I love. Very good day both you and Leyla! Blessings Minna (from Finland)

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)

susie-new-jersey“I have been dancing since 1993 and over the years, I have studied with many dancers and I have purchased many videos. After all the wasted money spent on worthless videos that promise to teach how to break down the moves and then use them in choreography. Until now, I had given up hope of finding such a thing.”………….

Hello Leyla & Dan I just wanted to say Thank you. One  morning I was online and suddenly I found Leyla. And it was awsome.  I like how she dances. And Bellydance Village is everything I need. Thank you very much Leyla and Dan! Dayse, From Germany

Anglia This is not your “everyday” same ole style of teaching/instruction, not the same moves taught over and over.  The clarity of instruction is outstanding.  Leyla breaks down move with all 4 sides demonstrated with each drill broken down clearly and in detail. If you’re a beginner you will love the introduction to new steps.  intermediate dancer learn new combinations and build core strength and strengthen your legs and quads.
