"I watched you closely and Kalaa I have to tell you that you captured that piece of music (Baed Anak~ Oum Kalthoum) with perfection. Everything flowed, elegant, poised, etc... I love your poses, subtlety, just everything.....when a dancer can capture the music in such a way as you did and perform so eloquently, well ,I have just got to tell them. Beautifully done Kalaa." ~ Sonia (VA) 2011
