This was such a beautiful dance by the pair, so elegant and heartfelt with so much emotion conveyed. I was so pleased for Emma, she delivered this perfectly and really did surprise me, I definitely think this was her best dance.
I know that others may have different views, these awards are decided by my own opinion
You could tell that Emma was having lots of fun performing this dance, I noticed that she is however still having problems with getting loose and having fluidity in the body this meant she lacked the all important bounce in this dance. Her Latin is improving but I think she could still give it more with these types of dances.
This is better than I expected the Charleston to be from Emma, lots of content, great lifts and didn’t make any mistakes. However, I felt as though she wasn’t able to let go and have fun with this dance, Emma didn’t put any character into it which meant it wasn’t cheeky or funny which is expected in the Charleston. I also thought it was slightly over scored.
I think Emma is so much better in ballroom and in hold it suits her as she is such an elegant person and has the statue for it. She looked confident and you could see that she’s enjoying in, this was a big improvement from last week. Unfortunately, I personally think it was slightly over marked.
Emma was unable to match aljaz’s energy which in the beginning made it look too placed and proper. However, good kicks and flicks and she got into it towards the end and as Shirley said such an improvement and is growing in confidence, this was her best Latin performance so far.
Emma looked so much more relaxed and comfortable which is so great to see. It was very elegant which I expected from Emma and her acting was really really good. Unfortunately there was big gaps between them when in hold and there are definitely improvements that can be made. Overall they had really good story telling and it was a big improvement from last week.
Not the best tango song but some really good elements and Emma did really well. Managed to stay in Character for the whole dance and shows promise for storytelling. She was bit tense in the shoulders at points which ruined her top line but overall a good first ballroom dance.
