If it's true that they learn the dances far ahead of time, then it's really inexcusable that they aren't performing them more cleanly.
Regarding the amount of time given to lean dances... Melissa just stated that Maddie had learned her dance in 3 days, compared to the other competitors that had months to learn theirs.
If they are learning and stockpiling these dances, it would not be surprising for them to be rusty on them....to me, anyway.
She's mentioned dance careers and Cirque du Soliel; I remember her mentioning Cirque in connection with Brooke.
Yes, Cirque du Soliel, that sounds familiar.
I doubt Brooke will be dancing at 16, much less 24. The stuff about Cirque du Soleil sounded like Abby's usual b.s. As lovely as Brooke is, she just doesn't seem to enjoy dancing. When she performs, there's no joy on her face. She just does the steps. I"m sure she would have quit already if not for the TV show and the contract with Abby's studio.
I'm curious, is working at Cirque du Soleil really that lucrative that one of the mothers would hope their daughter picks it as a career?
