One of my favorite comments on this video was probably by ivonne10100 and it said “magnificent music!!! i think it depicts beautifully the arabian world..and igor kolb is just fantastic”. I thought that this comment was beautiful and it showed just how inspirational this video truly was to some people. I think that someone who is very into dancing and especially into ballet would very much enjoy this video. I think that anyone that is in the age group of 20-40 would probably find this video enjoyable if they also had a background in dance. They could easily gain more knowledge on the dancing world and more knowledge on music that is used in the dancing world.
