    Beautiful smooth movements! You have those in spades I really liked how you flow and keep a nice soft look.

    I'd love to see you work more with presenting movements from different body angles. Facing more 3/4 side views and see some of your hip movements from the back. I think some of the movements you did were lovely, but sometimes we missed the full impact of what you were doing by seeing you straight on a lot.

    Personally, I like the softer more baladi style arms like you have. They look very relaxed and natural. You could try using them more to frame movements to break things up a bit. Holding the arms still around a working hip to frame it looks lovely on you. I'd like to see more of that.

    Very, very good connection with the music. When you have your audience in front of you, and I know you only have a camera here, make sure you draw them right in to how much you are feeling it.

    Great! So when do we get to see you do it in a costume?

    Your moves are so juicy. Delicious.

    Also, I agree with the above comments about the arms, emotion & framing.

    thank you all for help I do know that i need to work a lot on my upper body and its nice to know. SOOOO glad i posted this video for good input. and thanx for the angle info. I'll try to do that more often. of course, i do different angles, it really just depends on the song and how it moves me.

    anyways thank you for the compliments AND the advice.

    thank you ladies. I deeply appreciate it. I won't be able to show it in a costume any time soon as I can barely afford funds for bd dvds. but when i am in the future, i'll be sure to share, hehe
