Looking at the latin dance styles, Donald/Katherine/William all have the same or similar dances, whereas Maria has the jive. I think her AT will be killer, but the jive may be a liability.
Louis van Amstel has been blogging each week for ABC. He's probably on CA's list now, but reasons like this why I love him:
Louis Van Amstel’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 14 Dish: Week 8 - ABC NewsCarrie Ann, why wouldn’t you care for Flamenco? It’s part of the Paso Doble character! Dance history is easily found on Google!
Thanks DancingDad - I agree with what he had to say this week. I saw it pretty much the same way and this is my first time reading his blog.
And I've seen several paso's that Len praised for the Flamenco, so you think CA would at least have a clue by now that that's one of the traditional elements. In fact, IIRC, I feel like at one time she praised a couple for adding that to their dance. But she didn't like it here? Maybe she figured she needed to find something wrong with the dance, and that's all she knew to call out.
