Iris, my 4 year old son loves watching these videos and we were really excited to see that you posted "dragon."  We just tried writing the standard style that you demonstrated.  The running style and the dancing style were a bit too much for us to handle though!   Thanks for posting these and keep them coming.  It's great to see how the characters are written with 毛笔。
