Strictly Dances – Part Four
Will Bailey and Janette
I was a bit worried about Will because, when he came out, there were a few timing issues. However, as soon as he stepped through the door, I saw a different man. The posture was pretty good throughout, he kept it strong in a very fast dance. He ran across that floor with such ease and it didn’t look lumpy or forced, it just seemed to one so easy as he glided across the floor. I also can’t forget to say how much he performed. There was full on energy from start to finish and his smile was so infectious. He was like lightening across the floor and I didn’t seem him falter once.
Karim and Amy
I’m literally done with this year, like why is everyone so good? I mean I have so many high hopes for this guy now because honestly, that was an amazing cha cha and I don’t know what else to say. From start to end, there was so much energy and he had this amazing smile on his face all the way through. I mean Amy literally threw the kitchen sink in there and he did it all so well. I didn’t see any mistakes in the footwork and he just embraced his femininity and really allowed it to take over his body to get that sass and spice the cha cha needs. It wasn’t your conventional cha cha and that’s why I loved it, it was so unique and Karim literally sold it. This guy is definitely a contender and it’s going to be great seeing this partnership grow and his skills grow.
Emma Barton and Anton Du Beke
I love how Anton knows he has a good partner and basically just went who cares, let’s put everything in and have a ton of fun- he danced as if he was a 20 year old. You can tell that Emma had has dance experience because she just had this way about her from the way she placed her feet to the way she held herself. Sometimes it all looked a bit prim and proper for the jive and thus a bit straight and rigid. However, I think Shirley was being way too harsh. I enjoyed watching it and she really knew how to perform. I can’t wait to see her get better and better.
