A lot of improvement in comparison to your past sets and overall improvement as a whole. However the black jodi would go buck wild and look very different at times. People making silly mistakes in this set which can honestly cost you a placing when point margins can mean the difference between placing and not placing at all. You guys need to not make these mistakes on stage and for 1-16 to understand that to dance as a unit as you cannot have one person going buck in comparison to the other 16. It makes not only that dancer look bad, but those around him as well. I also think formations can be a bit more intricate as they seem quite standard to me. I think the biggest things that need to be worked on is the synchronization of your dancers and the formations need to be more complex.

Always love seeing you guys perform-mix was hype, ending gimmick was pretty cool. You guys had some nice variations and creativity in choreo

Agree with the comments made above, especially with regards to formations. They could have been more complex, but I think most importantly, the formations didn't work really to amplify the effect of the choreo. Formations should make choreo/drops stronger. Instead a bunch of segments had dancers moving all over stage for the 1st 16 counts and then stay in spot for the drop. Choreo complexity and formation work is there, I just think working on making them complement each other can take this set even farther.

Props on having solid dancer rotation, I felt like I got a chance to see most jodis in the front. Also, like how you guys applied some folk concepts into prop segments, like the transition from saap + khunde to just khunde and the jhoomer segment.
