Testimonials for Leyla

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 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

murwanaHip Mastery is the best series I’ve found so far for teaching intermediate belly dancers how to put together Egyptian Cabaret moves together into memorable combinations. 

Murwana, California PS: I just finished Hip Mastery Vol 2 and started Hip Mastery 3 and boy are my hips are tired. I’m getting more flexibility and movement in many, many years.

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!

I’m 23 and have wanted to learn how to belly dance for years. Unfortunately here are no classes in my area. I have tried many times to learn with DVDs as well as online videos and have never had any success until I came across your site. I’m finally understanding!!! the way you break down the movements and the details you go into are amazing and exactly what a beginner needs…I am so happy I came across this. cant wait for the next video!

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.

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

Hey Leyla! I am SO happy I found your website!!! I used to have a problem with back pain but since I started your lessons, it’s gone way down! When I have back pain I practice dancing & it goes away! It’s also helped with my posture & helped me lose weight which has helped with my confidence!! Ari  Feb 9, 2012 I am doing pretty good and have pretty much everything down, except I am having some trouble with doing chest circles. I can do them to the left but going to the right is difficult for…

Couldn't Have Done it Without Leyla
AllisonBelly Dance Village! is the one place where I can go to not only get instruction but support that is above and beyond! Having access to all video’s is very important and the fact that I do not have to wait for a DVD to be delivered to my front door means that I can work on my dance right away! Leyla has helped me with my dance in making everything she does easy and in a way that you can understand! have been a part of other online instruction and I will tell you that no one can hold a candle t…

I’m a first timer in belly dancing (in dancing in general actually). this video is so easy to follow and I enjoy learning it. …Ghzeei for Belly Dance Basics DVD

I feel like I’m in a serious dance class actually learning the art of BellyDance; you appear serious about the instruction and are not trying to be all cutesy (which is nice).  Granted I’ve only seen Hip Mastery 1 , it does cue me into how the others will be delivered;  I will be getting to them as soon as I can do the first DVD’s moves quickly…Zumba ain’t got nothing on you!  Is there anything I can do to help get the word out, because Leyla these are good and need to be in every dancer’s libra…

WOW! WOW! That’s all I can say after viewing your Hip Phylosophy DVD. You are such a skilled dancer Leyla. I feel so fortunate to have met you and to have you teach me, I hope our dance community realizes what we have here. Thank you so much for teaching. From Shemara, Albuquerque, NM

I love her videos and how she explains things. I wish I lived closer, as I would definitely be begging for lessons in person. I have lost over 10lbs so far with her free beginning videos online.  white lined paperI wish I lived closer, as I would definitely be begging for lessons in person. 😀

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
