In your first video I see you really dance, well done! Some steps are a bit to difficult/hard for you right now. Save them till later, when you had more training.

In your second video you do steps that suits a beginner. Make sure you get the basics right. You will enjoy that with all advanced steps to come.

I think you're doing a great job. You clearly have a great love for ballet and that will help you to keep up the practising.

I agree that the first video has some steps you're not ready for yet. But in the second video I can see that you're properly focused on your technique.

Congratulations on your achievements thus far. I'm sure there will be many more to come!

First I think its awesome you posted these videos. Second I am always in awe when people take up dance. Its a sad world because, it so fowned upon and for no real reason. Stereotypes ruin the world of dance, amongst other things.

Now for crtitque:
Its awesome that you are going through all of balletes movements.. but that is all I am getting from your performance. You need to focus more on the emotion behind each movement than on each physical representation of said movement.

All I see if "you acted out the parts" there is no feelings, no connection, no concentration or concern.
AS much as you have advanced, I feel you are seriously lacking this important part of dance, and almost want to cut the cords of insecurity or ignorance myself in order to view the breathtaking vibrant growth choking beneath it.
