very handy!
I have found this cd very useful for not only teaching, but last minute performances that call for a certain amount of time (like the 20 minute routine is especially helpful). Well thought out, very danceable, especially if you are more turkish style inclined, but not by any means limited to turkish. I would say it\'s a good thing for any dancer or dance teacher to have.
