It should be emmitt or kirstie Kelly was good last night im concerned that her fan base is too small
sabrina should not have had a thirty she didnt show variations in speed at all back to her fast and fierce mode again gets boring for me
apolo was amazing as was mellissa country songs for VW work great especially if your throwing in american figures
I think the pros are specifically told to do their Viennese Waltzes, Waltzes and Foxtrots as "American" Style, while Tango and Quickstep are "International." Obviously liberties get taken regardless of which style they're supposed to be doing...
they arent ive asked kym and karina in person they have slowly developed these liberties as Lens tolerance has allowed lOL
season 1 ashley del grosso tells len 'its an open american foxtrot" with her star LMMAOO kaboooommmmmmm the hammer fell
Well, to be entirely fair to Len, when DWTS first started he'd had minimal exposure to or experience with American Smooth. As such, any dancing out of frame was more a show number than a proper ballroom dance. As DWTS has continued from season to season he can only have become that much more familiar -- and hence more comfortable and accepting -- with the style.
Finally found a moment to dig these up. You'll have to take my word for it that these descriptions have been up for quite some time.
They don't specifically mention it in Viennese Waltz, but I guess when do you see even international couples stay in hold for a show VW anyway?
Not to mention there's no such thing as Americal Style Quickstep.
That was absurd.
I only saw the bottom two (though not necessarily the bottom two) and....really?
Though since I haven't voted for anyone at all this season, I really don't have any grounds for complaint.
I was really hoping for a lovely VWaltz during Jason Mraz's song; maybe with Anna and Jonathan. Instead we got that spastic writhing flexed-foot body-flinging sequence. Bummer.
Immediately followed by:
Goodness people, it's not like mindputtee posted a video of something truly disturbing, like American Paso or American Samba! Give the smooth quicksteppers a break!!
About what y'all were really responding to: Y'all really still watch this stuff? Health tip: You can drop a good 10 points off your blood pressure if you avoid reality tv dancing shows. You can not only add years to your life, but to your tv's life as well, because it won't be in constant danger of something being thrown at it.
OK, I feel better. NOT!
OMG, I had the exact same thought. As much as I am not a fan of contemporary, I have a much better appreciation for its execution on SYTYCD now that I've seen it done not as well by the ballroom pros on DWTS a couple times.
Speaking of which, the Macy's stars of dance routine didn't do much for me... surely a couple of world-renowned choreographers could do better than that. I was trying to imagine it being performed by SYTYCD contestants (b/c it really smacked of that show) and it still wasn't wow-ing me.
I agree with you totally...that was very disappointing for me too.
Ditto. I was hoping for a spectacular, graceful v. waltz
lol not a fan of contemporary i see
me too funny i hoped for anna and jonathan also
agree we need five dances in smooth for parity in american 9 soon to be ten dance
Yes, the was for the elimination last night, not for American Quickstep. I don't have a problem with it.
But yes, I have seen American Paso, and it ain't pretty.
