well no one can conduct "perfect".. i really dont think there is any set way that you HAVE to look like.. there are always varied ways too conduct.. and none of them are wrong.. at least in my eyes

yeah...instead of just watching, try competing. There is no magic spell that will just make you good which seems to be what you are looking for. It takes lots and lots of practice. Plus if you compete you will have a professional judge giving you advice on everything you are doing.

i agree w/ wut everyone there is no certain way to do it..everyone has their own style and by competing, u'll know what the judges are looking for so you could kinda of merge what you like and what the judges like together which makes everyone happy! :D
