If my DD I wouldn't change a thing....well.....maybe just the 'launch angle'. But, other than that I would just keep studying/learning the swing(dad/mom).
If I can't laugh at myself...then I'll laugh at YOU!
Agree with rdbass. Maybe try and clean up the barrel path (which is similar to 95% of 10U kids I see around here, ,my DD included) a bit other than that practice,practice,practice!!
Life was a lot simpler when Mom/Dad couldn't videotape our less than optimal swings!!

I am about as far from a swing expert as you can get, so I won't offer any tech advice. However, and maybe it's just the angle from the camera, but is she swinging too long of a bat? A bat that is better fitted to her height may be easier to control and lessen the bat drop/drag.
@pattar , my wife decided that holidays require something called "family time" and put her foot down when DD and I tried to sneak off to go hit, so I'll try and get a full speed video tonight at practice.
There is a lot of little things here that could be fixed but at some point your might over load her. She is still very young. I would start with her back foot, it is sliding back. It's an easy fix will put her in a better position.

You don't typically see it with kids, I agree. Doesn't mean it needs to be fixed. In general, imo, the back foot
action is a no teach unless they are "squishing the bug"..
