    Yes, you should be wary.

    No-one can do all that well. Avoid her like the plague.

    If it was po-faced and cold probably Hilal's interpretation of raqs sharqi.

    There's been a few threads on this. I like Fifi (although she does beledi too), Lucy, some of Dina, Naimea Akef if you want old stuff. Don't forget Aida Nour - although it maybe hard to find footage - she has been a regular teacher at our intensive in Brisbane and live she is to die for - even retired.
