Generally speaking, I like Danny, and I certainly don’t see any of the supposed arrogance everyone is talking about. He just strikes me as being emotionally frugal…no matter.
I’ve really enjoyed him the last two weeks but I think part of that is the dance styles he’s gotten and another part is Anya. Like Mia said last night, his hands do their own little separate dance (they do and it’s lovely), which is great when he’s doing a flowing romantic waltz and he looked good in the jive because it’s spunky (he looked like he was having a blast) and Anya is smoking hot. Overall though, there’s something about the way he moves that irks me…it’s just a smidgen too effeminate. I can’t quite see him pulling off a powerful paso doble and I shudder to think what he’ll do with hip-hop - especially if he’s stuck with Shane Sparks (who I personally think is a poor choreographer for not taking into account the strengths of the non hip-hop his dancers).
Basically, I’m not expecting him to be this year’s Travis Wall… after last nights performance, I think that title might go to Neil.
