MaryEllen Smith: Great drum solo routine! I bought this video hoping to learn some new techniques to enhance my drum solos and I was not dissapointed. You can use the complete routine or incorporate some of the moves into your dance to make it your own. I would have loved it if the music she used were included. Julliana has a style that is unsurprassed in the world Belly Dance. I have many of her videos and enjoy all of them. Jilliana Rocks! Mary Ellen, teacher/performer, Torrance, CA
Bethsheba Almah: I absolutely LOVE her style of dance. Once I counted all teh turns she did in a song, regardless, I LOVE HER STYLE! She is ultra elegant, graceful, alluring and captivating. You never know what to expect next from her. Her stage presence and directions in perform ing on stage as the audience perceives you is amazing. She gives choreographers better insight into the dance and its construction. She makes a drum solo effertlessly easy and UNFEARED!

Michelle Boivin: This is a fun, dynamic drum solo with Jillina's signature style. I'm always amazed at how her dances look complicated and sophisticated, but when she breaks down the combinations, they're surprisingly "do-able" for the bellydance student.
While the technical prowess of Ansuya's moves, or Saidi's precision timing, can seem quite daunting, Jillina's instructional DVD's are surprisingly easy to master, avoiding discouragement while still being challenging enough.
