    List of Who's Dancing to what for next week (3/23/09)

    For next weeks (3/23/09) dances, the couples are reportedly dancing the Samba and the Foxtrot.

    The couples reportedly dancing the Foxtrot are:
    David & Kym
    Shawn & Mark
    Ty & Chelsie
    Steve-O & Lacey
    Melissa & Tony
    Chuck & Julianne
    The foxtrot is described as:
    • a very smooth dance
    • There should be no jerkiness
    • Lots of forward or backward moving patterns which are straight and well aligned
    • The timing is everything. It needs to be: slow, quick, quick, slow.
    • Distinctive moves:
    • The Weave - is six quick steps in a row, all on the toes.
    • The Feather Step - when the man steps outside the girl.
    • zig zag patterns that the dancers create on the floor.
    • Couples can break the "hold" allowing more open movements, including under arm turns.

    Those reportedly dancing the Samba are:
    Lil' Kim & Derek
    Gilles & Cheryl
    Holly & Dmitry
    Lawrence & Edyta
    Denise & Maksim
    Steve & Karina
    The Samba is described as:
    • A very rhythmical dance with lots of hip action.
    • It has walking steps and side steps. Along with a vertical bounce action. Use of the ball of the foot is essential.
    • The Basic step is a crossing action in front of the body, where you step across with the bounce
    • It should include a rolling movement from the waist up. The upper body circles as you create a six-step turning group. (this is called a Samba Roll)
    • Another move is called a Botafogo, which is a traveling walk with a change of direction from left to right or right to left.
    • You will see lots of outstretched arms.
    • The dance ends with throwing of heads back and arms splayed out

    Thanks for those bullets tmpray! It's been a while since they've done the description of the dances...and I don't know about anyone else, I don't retain that information much beyond the finals. LOL!
    I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world.

    I can't remember the different dances either. I went back and looked at Tony and Stacy dancing the foxtrot. I thought it was a fast dance, but it is a really elegant & graceful dance. Tony and Mel should do well with this one, if their waltz is anything to go by.

    I like the samba too. I remember Cheryl and Emmit Smith's samba, so she and Gilles should do well tonight.
