Ashley & Pasha – 38 (9,10,9,10) – Quickstep

I was surprised at just how quick this dance was, I’m very impressed that Ashley managed to keep up and not make any mistakes because that would have completely thrown the whole dance off. I do agree with Shirley that I was all a bit busy, but as it was Musicals Week I could see what they were trying to do.

Ashley & Pasha – Jive – (10,10,10,10)40

The first 40 of the series !! And this dance sure did deserve it. Such perfect timing with short, sharp flicks and kicks. The choreography from Pasha was outstanding and the speed those two had on the floor was mind blowing. Not a fault in sight

Ashley & Pasha – Charleston – (9,10,10,10) 39

This dance was definitely worth its three 10s, an absolutely brilliant Charleston. Ashley nailed the swivel technique as well as the facial expression as, they seemed to be having so much fun and the choreography was excellent, it seems Pasha has a knack for coming up with some fantastic Charleston’s.

Ashley & Pasha – Rumba – ( 9 , 9 , 9 , 9 ) 36

A very tasteful and well performed rumba which is incredibly hard to do, however I do believe in my opinion that it was slightly over scored. For me there seemed to be a few tiny wobbly moments. But as a whole it was still a fantastic dance.

Ashley & Pasha – Tango – ( 8 , 8 , 8 , 8 ) 32

A powerful performance from Ashley with some great facial expressions and wonderful choreography from Pasha. Wasn’t to keen on the song choice but her outfit and the performance was impressive, Ashley can only keep on improving.

Ashley & Pasha – Dirty Dancing – Salsa – (8, 9, 9, 9) 35

Another stellar performance from Ashley, a wonderful dance and I’m so glad to see that they did put the lift in there, and for them to hold it for as long as they did was soooo impressive. However I did agree with Craig that she needed more hip action which is surprising really. I think the judges will become really picky with her in the future because she is doing so well.

Ashley & Pasha – Cha Cha ( 8, 8, 7, 9 ) 32

This was always going to be a strong dance for Ashley. It had brilliant hip action, but what really impressed me was her leg action and how she nailed the straight led and the control of the speeding up ad slowing down. It was a very impressive dance and again she is another all rounder and could definitely make it to the final.

Ashley & Pasha – Viennese Waltz ( 7, 8, 7, 7 ) 29

I don’t think it was a surprise that Ashley & Pasha was joint top of the leaderboard, it was a fantastic dance and her hand placement was fantastic. Because she has done so well in Week 1 it does mean that she will have to keep this up and improve each week, which I have no doubt she will. I’m really excited to see what this couple can do as with Ashley’s potential and Pasha’s fantastic choreography we could get some really special dances from these two this year.
