Testimonials for Leyla

Thank you so much for your incredible DVD. It is exactly what I had hoped for. You have done an incredible job of organizing hip work and making it practical. I am so inspired! From Donna, of Michigan for Hip Phylosophy 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…

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.

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
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

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’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!

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.”………….

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.

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)

Yahairas_smallI just wanted to “thank” for de DVD and CD I just received yesterday.I love them! Leylas DVD is wonderful. Easy to understand and follow., since my english is not too good. The music CD is of great help for practising. I have already already started using them.. 🙂

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

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…

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

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

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…
