Summertime is dancin’ time! My favorite reality show is back, with my hunny-bunny, Twitch. [He doesn’t know it, yet.] So Mia Michaels is my fave choreographer, because she tells the best stories. But wow, she told a wild & crazy story tonight.
The vision of Tim Burton’s wedding? Obviously, it would be an oddity among oddities. [Have you seen Sweeney Todd?] And the choreography was so perfect.
But not my fave choreography of the night. Fave work of the night? Song: No Air, Jordin Sparks & Chris Brown Dancers: Katee & Joshua. Choreographers: Napoleon & Tabitha. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. The ONLY hip-hop of the night, actually.
My favorite genres continue to be hip-hop and contemporary. That’s where the stories are, and the stories are what I love about dance. Sure, some nice lines in a waltz, a bit of fun and drama in broadway, sex appeal in latin…but it comes down to story for me. Stories are told in hip-hop and contemporary. Cohesive, comprehensive, relatable stories. [Tango might be a story, but I’m just not on that level, I guess.]
So, Wade Robson guests tomorrow night, that’ll be nice to see. We’re in for a great season. I don’t have a front-runner picked, but there is a lot of talent. We’ll see how things go.
