You might check old threads because we've talked about this before at least once that I can remember, and people had some good suggestions for musicality itself (not DVDs, but just ideas.)
    I'm not familiar with the other videos on this thread, so I can't compare Keti's to them. However, I can point to a review I did of Keti's:

    I have her DVD without subtitles, however according to jahbie they have them with subtitles as well?

    I don't speak much Spanish, but I can understand a lot, especially when there is a visual context to what I'm hearing. I think even someone who doesn't speak any Spanish could get something out of the DVD, but it would help to understand at least a bit.

    But if there's subtitles, that shouldn't be a problem.

    I thought that the Saida DVDs mentioned would be the ones by Saida and Mario Kirlis, and they have a subtitles button in the menu. But maybe I have the wrong Saida?

    Keti's sounds a lot like Ranya's. Does anyone have them both who could tell me if there is any difference in the covered material?

    They're ENTIRELY different.

    I think of Keti's as more of an introduction -- here's something to think about now go learn it in depth. And Ranya's as "here it is in depth."

    Also, their philosophies are really different. Ranya is a lot about just organic movement rather than specific "shapes."

    Humm...after Ranya's is grocked is there another video that would be a logical next step?

    Erm, not really. There's the Cheeky Girls "Meaning in Movement" which introduces a lot of concepts, but kind of stops there. Beyond RR's dvds, I think you would do well to rely on performance videos for analysis.

    Have you had the requisite workshop with Karim Nagi yet?

    I don't think he's been within a eight hour drive which is about my limit. If he has I missed it. I'm pretty isolated, which is why I invest in so many DVDs and books. We have a large area with a low population, low income, and no Middle Eastern community. Recently we've gotten two workshops a year in the entire state. We used to have one every five years, so things are looking up. It's not easy to learn in this part of the U.S. If any workshops are requisite, I'm simply SOL
