another dancer writing about dance and stuff
I’m sorry to offend anyone who loves the show but I find no merit in it.
This is a really good write up Liz. I’ve never paid much attention to the show, so I never really considered the absurdity of judging dances of different genres against each other but you’re so right. It’s all a popularity contest. I’d be interested if they did theme weeks, all pairs doing either ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, etc. against each other, rather than giving them all different styles. That probably wouldn’t do as well with ratings though, and it’s all business in the end.
