This is mostly so that I can purge what's been bouncing around inside my head, or, failing that, rope the rest of you into my madness. So now that I've found this new obsession, I've been YouTubing dance routines like crazy. I'll be posting one a day for you guys to view and comment on, leading up to the first episode of actual competition for Season 4, which I believe is next Wednesday.
So today's clip is from the first episode of that weekend-long marathon that I caught on MTV a few weeks ago. There's a moment in this dance -- Lacey and Kameron dancing a contemporary routine choreographed by Mia Michaels -- where Lacey just throws herself at Kameron and then bounces right back. That moment right there sold me on this show for good. I guess my dirty little secret about this show is that I really love the super-duper dramatic routines (which is why it should be no surprise that Mia is my favorite choreographer). It's probably a result of me being born ten years too late (or too early) and not getting all that emo shit out of my system via The Cure (or Dashboard). Regardless, there's a kind of abandon that Lacey displays here that just floors me still.
Enjoy it for yourselves:
