-We want to be smiling the whole time. -I'm hot. We want to smile, smile, not laugh. You should always have a smile on your face. Let's do it again one last time. With a shout. Like this: tak tak tak doum tak Tak, hey-ya! One, two, three, four, five, six. Or without a shout. Straighten out the line. Close the gaps. Closer together. Let's go, one more time. Are you all listening? One, two. Stop. Are you with us? One, together, one, two. One, two, three. Here on one. Zeinab, I'm still talking. On one with the right shoulder. How many times does the right shoulder turn? One. Not one. Which is your right? Try, let me see you do it. Come forward and do it on your own. Where is your head? To the ground. Your face towards me. Look at me. Do it again. Face towards me, me. You aren't looking at me. Do it again. Your eyes should stay with me. With your shoulder. On the count. Five, six. Yes, bravo. You just need to look at me. As long as I am looking next to me, I'll mess up. Because if I look at my feet or at the person next to me who is making mistakes, I'll mess up too. If one person messes up, he wrecks the whole line. Do you understand? I mean if one of you... We're all doing like this. If one person does like so, it shows right away. We all lift it to the right. If one does it like so, it shows right away. It shows when the whole line is going like this and I go like this. Do it again, with the beat. With the beat, one, two. Let's begin. Stand up straight. One, two. Look here. Except the shoulder is wrong. Why is your shoulder wrong? You were only moving one. You are moving just this shoulder. You are doing like so. It's like this: one, two. Look at me. One, two. Both shoulders. You're only doing one. Look here. It's tak tak tak doum tak tak doum tak. One, two. I'm not moving just one shoulder. Let's go. Do it again. One more time. Straight line. Stand up straight. Get a little closer. Head up, to the front. Let's go. Face straight ahead. Let's go. One, two. The same mistake you made before. One shoulder, just the left one is moving. The right should move the same way. You are in the line. Do one, two. Do it with your foot. Do one two, not two backwards, next to you, next to you. Here. I'm standing like this. Not 'one, two' to the back. I'm standing here. Come a little closer. You have this... Stretch out. One, two. Look at my foot. One, two. Here. Not here. One, two, three, four, five, six. Is she in the bathroom? Ok? Good. Let me hear it. -Let me hear it -Hear it? -Yes. All together. Now I want to see who is hurrying. Not a sound out of you. Let's go, all together. At the end, one stomp. One stomp. Right. One, two. Why do I prefer it this way? Because there are people who are going too fast. And there are some of your who are slow. The line has to be in sync. One, two. Did you see the step? Why? Look at the line. The line should stay in place, not move forward. Do it again one last time. Concentrate a little. Abir! One, two. Ok. Dina, look. One at a time, everyone do the steps. Everyone listen. Just one step. Next. Take her place. Hold on. Do it with more life, with energy. It shouldn't be cold. Concentrate. Look at me. Concentrate on my foot. Your toe should be pointed. It shouldn't be like this. It should be like this, pointing forward. Like so, one, two. Not one, two. Let's go. Try again. Go back. Do it again so I can see how it looks. Do it again and count out loud. One, two, three, four, five, six. Why did you do it fast? Do it again. Hold one. Again. One, two, three, four, five, six. Not one, two, three, four, five, six. Do you understand what I mean? Do it again, slowly. Let's go. One, two, three, four, five, six. Where was the step? Was that the step? Like that? Do it again and do it right. -One, two, three, four, five, six. -Wrong. The foot... Everyone look... One, two, three, four, five, six, Here it's not like this. Here the leg is straight, stretched out. Look at me here. Go back over there. Concentrate. The legs here should be stretched out in front. They should do this. We call this move scissors in the air. One, two, three, four, see where they are? Not here. Down low. One, two, three, four. Five, six. That is the step. Both legs stretched out, the tip of the toe. Pointed downwards like this. This is wrong. Abir come back. -One, two, three. -Stretch, stretch. Stretch your legs out in front. Do this... One, two... Stretch them out in front. One, two, three, four... Five, six. That's it. Five, six and stomp not... No, do it again Zeinab. Don't let it hang... The point of your foot... I want one, two... Here. Not here, here. Pay attention. Don't play with each other. Pay attention here because here are the moves. Look here, you guys. If you keep playing you won't learn anything. Pay attention here. Get away from him. Bring some water with you. No, you started wrong. You aren't doing karate. This is wrong. Like this, back, look. Straight. Then open up. You are jumping wrong. Were you focusing? I'm not doing... See, that's wrong. Like this, this is right. Girls, make the best of these observations. Benefit from them. One, two. I jump on the same... Pointing my foot to the front. And do the scissors in the air. Don't pause, don't pause. Right away, one, two. Do it again. What is wrong with what you did? Do it again, slowly. -One. -No, not one. One, two. There's a mistake. Don't hurry. We don't want speed. Slowly, do it slowly. There is no one. There is a one, two. Still wrong. Here, look. One, two, three, four, five, six. -One, two, three, four. -Wrong. Let him show you. You are doing one and then stopping. It's one, two, three, four, five, six. There is no break. Let's go. One, two. Concentrate. Look. Not one, that's not it. I jump... My legs are like this. I jump, one. This, this is not it. Watch. One, two right away. One, two, three, four, five, six. You're jumping like this. Look, look at how my body is turning. When you jump, everything is straight. Straight. Let's go. One, two, three, four, five, six. You did an extra scissors. You did one, two... Get rid of one of them. One, two, three, four, five, six. Don't panic. Here, look at me. If someone is doing a move, we watch them. These instructions, I'm not going to repeat them. When someone is doing a move, you watch until it's your turn. -One, two, three, four. -Just four, four, then take five, six! Don't add one. -One, two, three, four, five, six. -Yes, that's it. Come on, who's next? We're talking about the same things, that we need to keep our legs straight and jump right. See how you aren't benefiting from these observations? When you do the move... Here I'm doing the move, you don't gain anything. When you talk to each other in line, you won't benefit at all. The pointers I've given to the four people that came before you. You made the same mistakes. You didn't learn from it. Why? Because you were distracted. Girls, if I describe a move, you need to focus with me. Not focus 'I'm smiling and have my head up. You have to focus with your whole body. How should my body be? My legs, how should they be? I'm going to go get water. Go ahead, do it again. One, two, three, four, five, six. Stretch your legs out more and jump backwards more. One, two, three, four... See your legs are like this. It has to come back. Yes. Don't flex your foot. Point your toes. I don't let anyone get a drink. When I say 'break' you can get a drink. Stand in line...let's all get back together. Your foot is still flexed. Look at your toes. See? See what it's doing? Down. Pointed. Right, that's it. I want a stomp. Five, six. Five, six. Hisham Where are your hands? Let's go. Finish the move by yourself. Look here, here, here. Stretch your legs more. Stretch them forward. No, no. Jump on both legs. I'm not doing this. It's up, not down. Stretch out more. I'm doing... One, two, three, four... Here, not here. Focus a little. You aren't focused. Look straight ahead. Your arms here. Forward. I do the movement straight. Stretch them, stretch them. Your legs make a scissors, scissors. Finish like this. Relax a bit. Who took a break? One at a time, drink some water. -What? -She's filming. I want to go inside. -Are you having fun in dabke? -Teacher, is there a mixed performance? -No, there isn't a mixed one. You'll all get to drink.
