Week 7: Argentine Tango

Aliona and Jay perform an exquisite, passionate Argentine Tango to Diferente by The Gotan Project.





Craig: It was great but it was desperately lacking gauchos, it did leave me wanting more. 8
Darcey: you execute it to perfection, those lines … so crisp! I want to see this fire come out, this desire, its only missing that. 9
Len: It was a polished performance, sleek, it was slick. It had a nice intensity about it … the lifts were good but sometimes you need to see a little bit of emotion come out on your face 8
Bruno: the precision was incredible, I was transported to upper class Boenos Aires! 9

TOTAL = 30/40

    Week 4: Quickstep

    Aliona and Jay performed a fast, energetic quickstep to “My Generation” by The Who

    Craig: Just too many mistakes, sadly 5
    Darcey: It’s such a shame you messed up. But don’t worry about this, Aliona gave you a very challenging quickstep and I know you can come back next week. 6
    Len: It’s a shame because these things happen. It’s a very fast dance, there’s a lot to think about, and your feet were doing more than your brain could handle. 7
    Bruno: In theory, this should have been a barnstormer. In practice, there were quite a few buts. 7
