Default Why SYTYCD is better then Dancing with the Stars

So You Think You Can Dance is better because Ryan has his shirt off.
Plus it's a terrific routine with the correct samba music. This song is by sergio mendes and called magalenha. This song makes me want to get up and dance. I think this is my new doc dance song.

BTW my hubby and I do the last move of this dance all the time. Maybe that is why is back hurts.

Yea,,,I enjoyed that too. I'm amazed that I like watching both of those shows as much as I do,,,,,I can't imagine learning the routine each and every week, let alone doing it as well as they do. EXCELLENT!

Oh, and by the way,,,the lovely Mrs. Jones and I do that move all the time too.....

I don't care for SYTYCD because to me, it's not dancing; it's gymnastics. I do wish I had seen that samba, though!

Kat, thanks so much for posting that link. I had to wait for my DH to relinquish the desk top. Sound is much better than on my lap top.

They were terrific! That's my favorite dance even tho' I can't do it! And you're so right about appropriate music.

Okay push you hubby off the lap top cause I have another samba for you. Before Lacey and Dimirty were on Dancing with the stars they were both on SYTYCD. Dimirty designed this rotuine for Danny and Lacey. Enjoy!

Default Why SYTYCD is Better tha n DWTS

Wow, Kat, they were wonderful, too. No wonder the samba is my fave! I have lots of samba music. Can't figure out why DWTS can't find it, too. WI wish they would do more samba and not so Americanized. I remember years ago when there was a duo "rocking" step, so beautiful, and looked so difficult.

Thanks again for posting those links.

Judy

Just dancing in the heels Lacey is wearing looks hard to me. I love the Samba also. In my zumba class we do some Samba steps they are very hard to do. I don't do them right, but I have fun trying.

I am surprised at the fact that professional entertainers such as they are on DWTS do not dance better than that. I do not watch the show but the morning shows that I enjoy insist on rehashing it so I do see some of it. If you want to see some real ballroom dancing watch the Ballroom Dancing Competitions. Usually they are found on the PBS stations They are wonderful. Graceful and smooth dancing. Elegant formal dresses for the ladies.Gentlemen in tuxedos. Much nicer than the gaudy things on DWTS. I have never seen the other show SYTYCD.
As for myself walking is a challenge. Some of us are just not graceful :-D.

Kat, what with Christmas shopping and getting the DH off the desk top, I didn't get to see the second link til tonight. They were fantastic.
.
Laura, I used to watch ballroom dancing. Haven't seen it or a while in SoCal, but it's dull compared to DWTS.

I can remember when I first started cruising there was always a place where people could go and dance. I used to love to go watch that on the ships before we went to dinner. Some of them were magnificent. Just a joy to watch. But that along with the elegance of the formal night is a thing of the past on most lines. What a shame.
