I think she is really beautiful. Her beauty helps her a lot in her dance. What do you think?
She is stunning but I have never seen her dance. Where is she from?
She is from Russia I think and indeed very beautiful.
However I have no idea how that helps with her dancing. To be honest I don't like her dance style.
Indeed, though I must admit that Maria Shashkova is good technically and talented. I just don't like her style because I find it too "busy" and fast and too big movements.
It is a good demonstration of youth, beauty and agility and I think perhaps she was a former gymnast?
I teach a young Russian model (private lessons) No matter what I teach her, she performs like this. 'I think, she probably thinks' I am old and old fashioned at 40 when I say slow it down, stop pouting and listen to the music and try to get the emotion as well as the energy.
She is a popular restaurant dancer now, but dance audiences are not as impressed when she does MED shows etc.
I am not a big fan either.... I dont like the vigorous turns and too big leg swings... but that's just my opinion.
I think you have no idea about Maria the angel dancer. Take a look here. I don't think that she is busy or too big movement. I just adore her.

Nice you like her, Mr. Bellydancer, but some people can have a different opinion.
The dance you showed was nicer than the one I showed. I've seen her dance busy more often, though, but she seems very talented.
