Stacey and Kevin dancing a beauts Foxtrot last…

Stacey and Kevin dancing a beauts Foxtrot last night (also sorry for inactivity, I’ll be back with posts and GIFs from now on)

Regular

Sorry guys, the reviews for the last 3 dances just went after I accidently clicked off it. So here’s a quick overview:

Ashley and Pasha – hated to admit it but it was great

Seann and Katya – after all the issues this week, I’m glad they came back fighting with those amazing lifts and fast paced dances

Stacey and Kevin – adorable as always and I love me a good foxtrot so it ticked all my boxes with charisma, speed and tons of choreography

Hey guys, before the last of the dances, I want to say that I’m going to start making GIFs again from tomorrow and I hope you love them ❤️

Stacey & Kevin – Despicable Me 2 – Jive – (8, 8, 8, 8) 32

A fantastic dance from Stacey, such an improvement on last week. Also wonderful choreography from Kevin, he always excels during a themed week. These two together are delightful to watch and I hope they get stronger throughout the show.

Dances Part 2

Kate and Aljaz – Foxtrot

After the beauty of last week, I know Kate is just going to keep stepping up her game and she also looks gorgeous as Jessica Rabbit (though I would’ve loved to have seen Aljaz as Jessica Rabbit). Even with that little slip at the start, I think Kate bounced back perfectly and, like last week, she was seductive, sultry and the dancing was so good – I mean her frame was so nice and her footwork was so precise. I couldn’t even tell that she wasn’t a pro and I am so excited to see where she goes from here because I didn’t expect her to be this good!

Stacey and Devin – Jive

You know what, I was pleasantly surprised about how good this dance was! After last week’s awkward cha cha, It might have been basic but it was all executed really well. Her kicks and flicks were sharp, she had full on energy all the way through and the timing was great. It is hard to keep up with Kevin but she did it perfectly and I can’t complain!

Joe and Dianne – American Smooth

Even though this is my favourite song, I’m sad to say it wasnt as good as I wanted it to be and I think Latin is definitely more his thing. He was adorable but there was some issues with the way he moved across the floor because it was a bit skippy and jumpy, his bum was out a bit but his face just looked permanently in pain. It wasn’t awful but it just didn’t seem natural and had the charisma that I love from this dance! But, it wasn’t awful and I know he’ll do even better the next time!

OMG THIS GROUP DANCE COMBINES ALL MY LOVES… …

Stacey & Kevin – Cha Cha ( 4, 5, 5, 6 ) 20

Stacey gave the Cha Cha a good go however was not her best dance. I think ballroom will definitely suit her more. I agree with the judges I wasn’t to keen on the dance breaker were they started doing random bits I don’t think it worked in this dance.

Dances Part 1

Stacey and Kevin – Cha  Cha

I can definitely tell that this wasn’t Stacey’s dance! She did attempt some of that straight leg action and she did seem to be having a great time with the energy but it just didn’t connect with me. It seemed a bit messy at the start and I saw virtually no straight leg and then, as we got into the main bit, although they did the right steps, it did seem slightly messy and there were just times where she didn’t seem to know what to do, like the body rolls looked very hesitant. I also lacked the hip action that we saw in Dr Ranj’s dance and it just seemed all too safe and she just needed to let go and enjoy it!

Charles and Karen – Quickstep

After last week’s smooth and seductive dance, it’ll be nice to see how Charles does in a more controlled and disciplined dance. So, apart from a bit of gapping and some timing issues, I thought it was a quintessential quickstep with smoothness and a great attempt at this solid top line which meant that he glided across the floor with ease… and don’t make me mention those slips which was just something to behold! It’s a shame about the timing because I loved it!

Katie and Gorka – Paso Doble

I don’t know if it’s the choreography or the song but I just didn’t like this dance. I have to applaud Katie for her passion and commitment to the dance but apart from that and some nice attempts at shaping, it just all seemed a bit stompy and discombobulated. I didn’t think this was her dance but she looked like she enjoyed it and it was nice to see a different side to her!

Graemme and Oti – American Smooth

You know what, Graemme is becoming one of my favourites. You can definitely see that Oti has been working on his top line because, from what I could see, it was top notch man and he just looked like he was having a great time. Although the judges didn’t like the fusion and stuff, I liked this different kind of dance and with the song, it all fitted perfectly and I think the judges are just hating on Oti’s choreography. I don’t know why they didn’t like it, I loved it and could watch it all day! BOO YOU JUDGES 🙁
