Let's start this here. I'll consider it Healthy Living because dance is movement.  Watching it not so much but it's mentally healthy to talk about things we enjoy?

This is the Exorcist family that GR and I was talking about below. It's amazing, heart warming, teary.  I love the little girl.I love that she's a great dancer but not one of those overly precocious kids.  So down to earth, the whole family.

I like that they haven't focused on really bad dancers this time.  The focus is on good dancers, unusual dancers.  There is a little too much background story and I'd rather wait until later in the show when we get to know them better. But, this season is starting off w/ some great dancers.

I agree with you. I love how the stories they are reviewing our inspirational, not depressing. There must be a new director, as I was happy to see them bring up family members to the judging panel. There seems to be a much more "warm" feeling. My daughter and I just got caught up with the DVR. I really enjoy watching some of the shows with. I can't wait to see how the talent unfolds in the season.

Yeah I can't wait for the show to really start w/ the top 20 dancers. I've always thought I'd keep these episodes so that later, I can come back and see my favorites' auditions but haven't done it yet.

The guy from last night who had an absolute temper tantrum on a past audition and then turned them down because he didn't get directly through to Vegas?  Sheesh.  What a princess.

I like this season so far but it really hasn't gotten started.  My zumba teacher used to be a hip hop choreographer and a couple of his former students are on the show.  It's funny w/ my daughter dancing so much because she's run into some of these dancers at competitions.  I don't what my bias is but I find the ballroom dancers from Salt Lake vapid.  They're incredibly sexy but that's all.  Of course, I don't really get ballroom dance much.

Not much to say but I'm loving this season!  I dvr it and was sad when the show ended. I'm really liking Fikshun and that young tapper guy. I also like blond pixie girl.  I was glad they got rid of her partner who dropped her.  I really wish they would show, at the end of each episode, who is left.  There were a couple who made it who girls at my daughter's studio know and it would be nice to know if they were still there, although I'd guess no.

Anyone stll watching this? I am and am enjoying it but there isn't much for me to talk about.  I do like the animators/hip hop guys this year but not crazy about the hip hop girl.  She does your standard dance studio hip hop and nothing I haven't seen at a million dance competitions.  I think she's there because she does hip hop and is a girl.

Yep, I'm watching it.  I actually really like Mariah (the hip hop girl).  I've been really impressed with her ability to do other styles.  

I was disappointed they got rid of Jasmin last night.  She was a great dancer and adorable to boot.  

I'm glad they changed the format back to the way it was.  Both my husband and I thought making them dance after they knew they were eliminated was mean.

I didn't see the whole show yet but thought they'd get rid of the contemporary girl because there were so many good ones but no tappers/ball room dancers. 

That might be the reason I don't like the hip hop girl--Mariah?  I don't think she's really a hip hop dancer. I think she's a dance studio dancer and has learned all the forms, including hip hop.  She probably wouldn't have made it as another type of dancer but stands out because she does hip hop. But, she doesn't do it that much better than any other good hip hop dancer at any dance studio around the country.

Season over and I'm happy w/ who won. I'd also have been happy if the others had won. It was a good season, very enjoyable dancing/dancers/dances.  I was said when Mackenzie left--she was a beautiful dancer but I'm sure we'll see her around. HIgh light dances for me: the Exorcist family, Mark Kanamoto (sp)'s crazy dance w/ Jenna, Twitch and Fikshun.  I wasn't crazy about Jenna, don't know what it is about Utah ballroom dancers that I can't relate to and didn't like that they kept saving her week after week, especially when they got rid of Maleek for her.  Love that the finale came down to the opposites--the short cute couple vs the long limbed, tall couple.
