I felt the same way about Nicole, but the one who really should not have been there was Mya. She was a principal dancer in a Bob Fosse musical. If you've never seen the movie version of "Chicago," take a look at the Cell Block Tango number. I'm not completely sure of the order off the top of my head, but I think she was merry murderess #6. That should tell you all you need to know about her dance experience.
I'm even more delighted to see no really bad or really don't care dancers this season. There is one I don't much like, but she is trying and certainly deserves to be there for a while. At least for now, I am looking forward to enjoying the season.
