The Winners of the Dancing with the Stars Dance-off

Congratulations to John and Charlotte for their victory in the Dance-off!

Dancing With the Stars, Dance Off - A Review by Walter

Is it just me or does John O'Hurley look better in a Tux than Spandex! John needs to stick to Smooth dance in the future. Everyone excels somewhere so why show off your weak dance style? And yes, even in Smooth dance John looked a little stiff. John also needed a more neutral facial expression.
Too much acting but if that's your profession....

Kelly dressed a little better this time but she and Alec still tried to sell the sex appeal over dancing. Her Latin/Rhythm was ok but her Theater Arts was better. She was better off not trying to sell elegant. It wouldn't suit her. Lifts, drops & tricks and Funky dress seemed to be their strong points....

The Dance Off was not just a dance off between couples. It was also a dance off between generations & dance styles. So who won my review? I had to agree with the audience and picked John & Charlotte. In judging the dancing everything was about even and, I was just as disappointed in both. I guess I just wanted to see some good clean dancing without the tricks. I did get some good dancing when Kelly and Alec danced their first Cha-Cha and then again when John & Charlotte danced their Waltz otherwise, the dancing this time didn't work for me.

So why did I pick John & Charlotte? The difficulty level of an Amateur Leader vs. the difficulty level of an Amateur Follower. John could not afford to be along for the ride. Kelly could rely more on her partner to carry her. The difference was just enough to tip the scales for me.

It sure was nice to see the pros dance together. That Smooth routine with Charlotte & Nick was great! Seeing the pros dance together woke up many non-dancers to what it's all about. I think Alec's Samba partner was Edyta who danced with Evander during the first show. She looked happier this time! The real winner is Ballroom Dancing.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.  Let's Dance!

Practice the easy way at our Friday and Sunday night dance. We couldn't think of a better way to reinforce those lessons!  Come early, and you can get a half-hour of whole-floor practice, while we are getting ready for the dance lesson.  After the dance, we don't mind if you hang around and practice while we clean up and close up the studio.
