BellyDance BootCamp Vol 2 with Fahtiem DVD

Volume 2
($29.00 + $5 S & H in the USA)

Bellydance Bootcamp with Fahtiem. Reviewed by Oberon
Printed from iShimmy.com

"Anything that says “Tone and Conditioning” on the front, with a picture of the smiling Fahtiem beside it, just screams, 'Buy Me'! Those of us who have been in class with the tiny “Glam Queen” know that she will Raq your Socks off.  So, is this DVD for all levels.  Dollars spent on our libraries are becoming more precious.
The mission of this approximately 50-minute long presentation is to “burn calories with an accelerated Belly Dance work-out”. 

It opens with Fahtiem doing just that – impeccable as always in fabulous costumes and a visual format aimed to excite.  You are then presented right away with the menu, which makes it very easy to play through all that’s offered or select a single part that you’d like to repeat.

I appreciate the effort Fahtiem makes – even with this “exercise” video.  The set is serene and beautiful and so are her support dancers, all dressed in red (the male in black and red), designed to compliment the radiant Fahtiem who is immaculately dressed and manicured even to the matching hair ornaments.  I’m inspired by her attention to detail even when it comes to presenting on a beautiful rug instead of a studio floor. Effort is something I’ve come to appreciate.

Although there is a posted suggestion to warm up before participating with the DVD – she does some preliminary stretches – mostly to warm up the feet and legs – and then pulls off the major “sneak” of this series – and the heart of what I, as a teacher really like – she begins to dance right away.

Arms and shoulders are put together with the warm-up steps immediately and the viewer can quickly see from arm positioning and ease of hands that there are indeed varying levels of dancers behind her.   Right away she begins the repetition that is so important to learning and covers the area from back to front and side-to-side which addresses style and balance.

Even the “breathy” breaks between changes are posed beautifully, never letting you forget that this is a Dancer’s workout! Enjoyably, she manages to warm and enliven every part of you body in the first part of the session. 

(Keep your eyes on her dancers if you can pull them away from Fathiem – they’re having obvious fun and you will gratefully see that proficiency varies from move to move in everyone).

I loved that throughout you seemed to be getting that “Rub Head, Rub Belly the other way – oh and Footwork please” kinda challenge.  She’s teaching co-ordination and combined isolations so effortlessly!

By the time she gets to rib cage and waist she’s a little pink and “glowy” – and so are you.
My little guilty pleasure? The upper body fold, over outstretched front leg in which Fahtiem’s perky “pony tail” did it’s own version of forward/back – right in time to the music. 

The hip and glute section – well that could have been my husband’s guilty pleasure, if I had shown it to him – which I didn’t WHAT? I’M WORKING!  OOOOH – I remember those butt lifts.
You should put it on “fast forward though” – I mean for an advanced workout!
Equally well crafted is the “combination section” in which you actually learn a few combinations that are threaded together at the end, to create a seriously sweet little choreography. 
Cool down is the final sigh and it is also when you may realize that you are listening to some of Fahtiem’s original music - another element that makes this DVD unique in the market.

I truly like this DVD – I do, because it makes sense to me.   There’s not a lot of excess conversation designed to make Fahtiem appear experienced – she just is! It’s just a straightforward (yes – calorie burning work-out) that happens to carry a solid punch when it comes to improving style, balance and technique!  It’s Oberon-recommended …and for what it’s worth – so is Fathiem.
So what more could I wish for – Hmmmm – a “not so socially perfect belly” adding another point of view among the support behind the ethereal Fahtiem.  Oh well – you’ll have to visit my studio for that!"

A Review:

Fahtiem's Oasis Dance Magic Gala Show (2002) The Video

As video editor, I was in the unique position to watch this show for many, many hours. In the course of studying, memorizing, watching in slow motion and in bits and pieces, I was surprised that I learned something about great dancing. I have, after all, been in this dance scene for more than twenty years, and thought I pretty much knew all I needed to know!

Each performer had great dance technique, which could be a study in itself, but the performance did not end there, each performer also had their own special brand of charisma, energy and personality. By the time the video was finished, I had made a mental comparison of the wide variety of dancers and had found some fundamental similarities in these outstanding performances. I won't give it away, because discovering it on your own is more valuable. Also, you may see and conclude something different!

I truly believe this video is worth the investment, and I recommend watching it over and over again! Featured performers: Virginia from Miami, Azar, Ritmo Y Sabor, Sahra Saeeda, Amir Thaleb from Argentina, and of course, Fahtiem.

BELLYDANCE WITH ADAM BASMA AND FAHTIEM, CD
($18 + $3 S & H in the USA)

Fahtiem is an award-winning choreographer, master instructor, and international performer, highly renowned in the dance world for her musical style and elegance. Featured in several films, TV shows, and concerts, she has received much acclaim for her captivating stage presence, as well as her unique teaching ability. Her philosophy: "There are no magic steps that will make you a great dancer; there is only the magic you put in each and every step," is pervasive in her teaching style.

This inspiring collection of Middle Eastern music is brought to you by award winning performer and choreographer, Adam Basma. Mr. Basma has committed many years to updating and reenergizing the traditional music of the Middle East for use by his own dance company in Los Angeles. By interpreting the classical and folkloric melodics of the region for the modern listener, he has been able to elicit a more emotional response from a wider audience. Now, with the talents of the most gifted musicians, singers and engineers, he has produced this popular collection of songs and rhythms which he hopes will inspire all dancers and music lovers of today.


REVIEW: Artistic Director Adam Basma pooled talents with America's First Lady of the Belly Dance to create the new hit CD "Belly Dance With Adam and Fahtiem." The two leaders in Middle Eastern dancing relied on decades of professional experience to choose the most beautiful, exciting music for Belly Dance accompaniment. A fully orchestrated dramatic opening indicates that something important is about to begin. A violin peaks in a lofty crescendo and onto a theatrical tone of suspense. Hyper dumbecs are heard above heavy bass frame drums rolling into the 5 part belly dance routine. Suddenly the percussion picks up a quick even tempo specifically composed for the dancer's entrance. The upbeat tune "Mashaal" introduces the dancer for the opening number. As the routine progresses the pace continually changes to give opportunities for veil, implement balancing, floor dancing and drum solo segments. Another spectacular professional belly dancer's routine "Mahrajan" is included on this CD. Both routines are suited to playing cymbals. Tinkling kanouns and tastefully whining mizmars provide opportunities for slow motion dancing. Brain frying drum solos elevate the sensational aspect of the performance. Several unique folk songs particular to Egypt, Syria, Tunisia and Jordan display the virtuosity of the incredibly talented musicians. Through their music they converse, chant, laugh, cry and pray with highly expressive attitudes. In the taqseems they infuse their souls into their work. Raspy woodwinds describe whimsical moods and perpetual mysteries. Throughout "Belly Dance with Adam and Fahtiem" careful attention is paid to showcase a broad spectrum of musical instruments. It was designed expressly for dancing and listeners just can't sit still.
