I think he is better than DL. But I doubt he has the fanbase DL does.I agree. I like Sean as a person but he is not improving as a dancer and Peta is trying to cover that up.
Even in their waltz his movements were isolated instead of flowing together into one whole.
I can almost here him thinking: "Okay spin her here. Now put your feet like this. Turn around now."
Not making fun of him but that's what his dancing looks like to me: a lot of disconnected distinct movements that are isolated instead of being a part of a seamless whole.
This will become more and more apparent as the worst dancers leave and the best dancers and the ones who are improving every week are left.
I hope Sean is having a good time being on the show and I wish him and Catherine the best.
He won't be on much longer though unless he has a miraculous break through.
