PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

23. "RE: Superstars of Dance"
Still waiting for it to download (I only found the link so far for the couples dance).

The camera work is killing me.

Open letter to the Camera Crew
Dear Mr./Ms. Cameraperson,
RE: Videoing dance shows
It's about the footwork, Stupid!
I want to see the feet. Bonus if I can see the whole body dancing. I do not need to see close ups of heads and shoulders, pseudo-orgasmic faces, hands on thighs, or a camera cut to a big round light when the final run of the choreography starts.
Remember
It's about the footwork! (Stupid!) Don't make me come there and lay some serious hurt on you with my stiletto heel.
Have a nice day,
Qwertypie.

As to the dancing
It was good. I thought it was a good compromise with actual tango dancing and stage elements.
Some beautiful, precise footwork (I suspect) was missed because of the GD camera work. I really want to smack the camera crew around. 1 camera, please. I beg of you.

The lifts I weren't superhappy with (along with the crotch shots).

The Turkey Lift and Spin and Toss at the end was right out of Forever Tango. At least she wasn't thrown into a giant bandoneon like in the stage show. I don't think that move is very well executed with her butt sticking up and the end moves with her thrashing in the air like a trout were sloppy, but that is just me. (For me the beauty of Argentine Tango is when the feet are interacting with each other, you know actually dancing)

(ASIDE)
Many tango dancers have ambivilent feelings toward Forever Tango. It really helped ignite world wide interst in Argentine tango which was in danger of dying out. Unfortunately, they put in so many crowd pleasing jumps and tricks, that any hack *coughAlex DaSilvacough* can claim to be a tango choreographer and produce the schlock that is only tricks and poses with no dancing that is seen on SYTYCD. (/ASIDE)

Watch the video again, but focus on the feet.
