Did anyone read Derek's book? I just finished it. Interesting.
Both Chelsea and Lacey were on SYTYCD.
yeahbut, they both had Latin background as I recall
They competed on sytycd as ballroom people
Julianne bough is the fourth judge on new season of DWTS..... This is one of those inexplicable decisions where I think WTF?
Would rather see her dance than listen to her talk. Her dancing is world class, her comments, well....
I'd rather have julianne as a judge than maks ( ducks arrows from angry female fans)
Maks does nothing for me.....personally I feel that anyone that has a sibling as a pro on the show, should not be asked to judge....
It is a bit more than a little conflict of interest. And it can go either way. The judge will either favor the sibling or go out of their way to underscore trying to prove they're not favoring him.
It wont matter one bit you will see..
Oh and its not a real competition
I mean, it might be one thing if the judges realized that paddles below six existed early on and eights later on, but the scores are already so clustered that the audience vote is all that really matters.
that is a recent phenomenon hope they return to more typical judging patterns from previous seasons
I'd be delighted to be proven wrong, but I expect there to be about as much of a chance of that as there is of their getting over their obsession with modern and other non-ballroom dances.
They do contemporary not modern. There is a difference. Tho is belongs on sytycd not dwts
Yeah, I realized eventually that I'd mispoken. My apologies.
Not every ballroom dancer knows that lol
I'll admit that I was *tempted* to post "Choreography" from White Christmas and say that's all they all were anyways. ;-)
What is the difference between contemporary and modern? (serious question, I do not know the answer to this)
I would be interested too. As a college "modern" dancer, (think Martha Grahm, Isadora Duncan, "I'm a rock, I'm a tree" style, etc. as the stereotype) we knew that they had renamed our genre to be known as "contemporary" when it came to SYTYCD.
If you are thinking of "modern" as it's referenced sometimes in ballroom, I can see where you are coming from.
