    My boy's freeze if I'm their watching them practice whatever. I would have to be the parent that leaves the room so they can be comfortable doing their thing. And if I join in they would die of embarrassment

    Now granted this was more than 20 years ago, and times have certainly changed, but when I was in ballet as a small kid, parents weren't allowed in the studio. I want to say the reason they gave was because it would be distracting to the kids. And once every few weeks or so, they had a class that WAS open to parents (in addition to recitals and all that), and it was indeed very distracting for everybody. With all the worry that parents have now about inappropriate behavior, that sort of rule may raise red flags or cause issues, but I still think it's a good one to have, and perfectly valid.

    This was the original inspiration; we selected, simplified and adapted movements. The music is so feel-good appealing, people in the room next door kept on peeping in and bopping along in time.

    Sorry for hijacking this thread for my own purposes, but could anyone tell me where I can find the song in this video?

    In the Youtube comments section, someone else was asking the same, and Ahmed Refaat said to see him at the next Nile Festival (*sigh*) or email him. He gave a name, but I didn't find a song that was like this one despite lots of looking on various lists and websites.

    I ended up using a Youtube to MP3 converter (free download). Don't know where this stands legally, but as there was no commercial element anywhere in this project, and it was for educational purposes, I guessed that it would be alright. If there had been a longer lead-up time, I probably would have tried emailing him about it.
