    Hi Liwen, thanks for all your videos, it’s great stretching for my fingers as they do get stiff during the day! I appreciated all your exercises.

      Hi Ketayun!
      You can use the gear button on the player controls to change the speed on the video. 🙂
      Any specific questions you might have on arm styling?

    I love all your videos, so cool but I’m wondering if you can do a video about FreeStyle dancing like you see in dance clubs. I dont have a partner so this is the only kind of dancing that I can do.

    Thank you
    Keep up the good work.

      Hey Bob! Glad you’re enjoying our videos. That’s a good suggestion, we’ll add it to the mix. What kind of music do you like to dance to? 🙂
