Alex and Neil – Samba
I am never normally a fan of the samba, but this so effortless, so cool and so enjoyable that I couldn’t help but love it. There was some bounce, energy and it was a perfect ode to the musical. On top of all those Sister Act quirks, it actually had a lot of samba elements all executed really well and blended well with the more modern and street dance steps. She had so much energy and working with Neil, it just had so much energy and I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Sometimes this dance can look stiff, but the music and the way they danced gave it the carnival theme. To me, it had the traditional samba vibe more than any other samba that I’ve seen this evening. Like I said for Chris, in a week like this, sometimes enjoying it is a lot more than looking at the technique.
