This post is a little late since we were celebrating the birth of our daughter last week. However, there were some amazing performances that I keep returning to in my sleep-deprived state.
Jason and Jeanine’s Contemporary Routine by Travis Wall
Jason has never really interested me, but Jeanine has been a star all along. This number was exquisite in execution and choreography. There were a few parts that were very provocative, but it strikes emotionally.
I loved the necklace toss back and forth, Jeanine’s clothesline arm, Jeanine pounding the necklace back at Jason, clothes ripping— all harmoniously to the lyrics of the music.
Ade and Janette’s Funk from Napolean and Tabitha
A fun routine to watch and probably to dance. The funk style suits Ade quite well, whereas Janette looked a little stiff a few times. All in all, a fun routine.
Kupono and Randi Exit the Stage
Kupono has had some memorable routines, namely crash dummies and addiction, but I’m not sad to see him leave. He still felt weaker compared to the other dancers. However, I was surprised that Ade was the second one in danger instead of Evan.
Randi’s departure is sad though. Her only misstep so far was this week’s Paso Doble routine and I wonder if her wig made it harder to remember her. She was a great dancer and I enjoyed her bubbly personality.
