As much as I say I would love seeing actual ballroom on the show, the flip side of things is that contemporary dancers would have trouble learning actual ballroom technique since it is so different from any of their other training. Watching them do a basic bronze routine would be boring, and watching them flail their way through an actual complicated syllabus or open routine would be excruciating... so the only way we can make this not overtly awful for the general public is to have them fudge through a mostly contemporary routine with some terribly executed ballroom steps thrown in as an afterthought. Imagine the whole routine like those two steps they do in closed hold?? The ballroom dances would probably be more of a death sentence than they are already, sadly. Even a non-dancer would know it was not right. Then again, if we actually had a diverse mix of dancers on this show instead of just contemporary, we could actually see quality ballroom, hip hop, maybe even some tap routines that could accurately portray these styles they way they are meant to be performed. OMG imagine that!!!
