Wandering around the internet to see what's new, I found the following. Not Samia Gamal's finest moment as a dancer, but still interesting.
I do love samia. I think I understand when you talk about people imitating her. IMO, when I see people doing a golden era Samia, it’s always doing a 50s Samia caricature “style”. Rather than the spirit of it. Like people who dress in modern 1950s style and it not “quite” being the actual 50s, but rather a derivative of it, and proclaiming they like 50s style of dress (no shade to it, but it’s a caricature of what the 50s are). Not to say this people are not good dancers (they’re amazing) but I understand your point of “not quite on the button”
