The only thing i can say about the video is the character doesn't seem to have any weight.
HE seems to be....floating? while i can see that his feet touch the ground, i cant tell that his feet are touching the ground, if that makes sense. Over all I'd give it a good grade. Just try to study some real world reference of how someones weight will effect them as they walk and dance, what types of inherent motions a body takes on due to movement and gravity, aside form the motions that are obvious form walking/ dancing.

thanks man. This is my first attempt at making a animation like this. I see what you mean he does feel a little light. I will get better though as I keep doing it. I needed to get the whole animation done and I animated over 120 poses over 15 seconds, it was a lot of work but fun. I probably could have done a lot more, but I want a potential employer to know I know how to animate which was the main goal. I will add more animation to clean it up in the future. Thanks for the crit though.
