    okay, thanx for the reminder. I think the same goes for jillina. the one thing that I DO like about jenna is that teaching style and her choreography is "clean". there is beauty in some simplicity. she doesn't try to pack too much in. it looks clean and defined. but i'll most defintely do more research. thanx

    which one? jenna saidie or jillina.

    but who knows? maybe my taste will change. when I was 16, my all time favorite was suzanna del vecchio. but she isn't anymore.

    some of my favorites are actually popular on youtube, like cassandra fox. alexandra dodenka, daria miskevitch. and some others.

    so maybe it can change. and even if I disagree with someones style or performance. I won't deny skillz. i won't deny that jillin saide and jenna are all skilled dancers of variouis complexities and styles. I won't deny skills EVER.

    I don't like Sadie either. She just can't catch my interest. There are sooooo many other gourgeous dancers that emote and feel and still have great technique. I don't even bother watching Sadie videos anymore. I don't really care about that taxi-program. That doesn't have anything to do with her dancing and I even thought it was kind of funny. Now, the choices she has made in DANCE... Those are not to my liking.

    yes,. . . like the rap video with her and kaya in it. yeah . . . no.

    i'm not a fan of some moves i consider very stripperish like popping into a squat and moving your hips up and down.

    but thats just me.

    And don't forget to look up other opinions already mentioned somewhere on this forum. Use the search function to see if anyone has asked about the same dvd previously. You'll also find a sticky on instructional videos in the Instructors and Student section.

    Im a big sadie fan...but like any art form...there are going to be people you like and people you dont care for..that just dont move you for whatever reason. That happens in the arts, even when the person is technically skilled or at the top of their field. Look at how many professional rock bands...even classic rock bands...some people just flat out don't like...and how many professional actors who have made it all the way to Hollywood or Bollywood or Broadway that you just don't like.

    I don't deny her skill, although I don't always agree with her interpretation of music, at all. but thats another thing. I think something can be learned from some of her dvds. which I may try the complete belly dance guide and giver her instructionals another chance.

    but I don't care for all of her danced.

    the thing I hate is when you get like these teen/young adult die hard fans.

    "no one, no one is better than sadie. shes teh best". okay . . . . shes not the first and not the last to belly dance. you can learn so much from so many different dancers and differest styles within belly dance and you're only going to stick with one.

    its just ridiculous to me. oh well.
