"Something is lacking in this DVD... Every dancer is smiling, but I get the impression that its just their faces; they lack the presence the have in their other works, especially Ansuya and Rania. They still dance beautifully and the technique is superb; I recomend this DVD for those true fans of the dance form, but if you are a beginner looking to be inspired, try one of the Belly Dance Super Stars solos DVDs which are a bit more polished & aware of showmanship."

"The first two dances by Jillina's and the first dance by Tam. Hanna are good, and the rest are ok. Good classical choice of music. As for the title, "On Fire" is just exaggerated since in parts, the dancers smiles are false. But the real problem with this dvd is the camera work. With better camerawork, this dvd could have been a collector's item as least for technique if not for the performances.
The camera work is shaky which takes a lot from appreciating the dancers performing moves. In parts, the camera moves backward and forward at the same time as it moves up and down. As if the person holding the camera was dancing at the same time as filming the performances. Sorry but that doesn't get more than one star if you have seen good quality work that is worth watching many times.

"All of the dancers are fabulous and the title is appropriate. I think all of the dancers are exceptionally talented but I'm always partial to Jillina because I was inspired to try bellydancing because of her. But I love the styles of Ansuya and Rania as well who are both so different from Jillina. Truly entertaining."
