  1. Yeah. Something about the person filming her is either making her laugh/lose focus for whatever reason (she’s posted many videos where she doesn’t look awkwardly at the camera like that so I think it’s a one off thing), but nothing wrong w/ her dancing. And she does look thinner.
  2. Choreo is fine, but I am really not impressed w/ her dancing at all. Like how can people be so critical of some of the current girls’ dancing, when this is one of their former “stars”? I just don’t think the “dance ability” bar is a high as many think when the girl has the right look and can remember the routines.
  3. People also can’t seem to go on vacation and enjoy something - instead they are always posing and taking photos and posting stuff instead of just actually experiencing the moment. Last time I was at Disney World I just couldn’t believe people.
  4. I didn’t realize she had all that plastic surgery. She was so beautiful. I guess I need to see some more recent pics.
  5. Sponsorships for a wedding??? Like sponsors giving her free stuff for social media mentions and stuff like that? That’s really really tacky - is that common w/ these younger ladies? Smh. I feel like we are heading to some sort of bubble of self-absorption that is going to burst in the next few years. Like Facebook, Instagram, etc. are going to crash and never come online and people will have metal breakdowns and riot...
  6. Balance, flexibility and turnout. All three things work together to make it possible.
  7. Probably, but she’s stlll not delusional to think she has a shot. A delusional person would be that girl upthead w/ the bad tilt technique trying out. And VK was one of Travis’ favorites on the show. ;).
  8. I don’t think she’s that delusional. VK is a great contemporary lyrical dancer and that is what that show is all about. She will need to slim down for it too if she wants a good shot, but she’s certainly pretty enough.
  9. It’s VERY popular in dance. And that girl is doing it very well. Her cash and prizes are actually facing away as much as they can be, which is part of the reason it’s a good tilt. She has beautiful extension in her legs as well - a lot of it is probably her natural flexibility in her joints, but it’s impressive nonetheless. Comparing that photo to the one the black beauty girl posted in the handicapped spot is like one of those “expectations vs. reality” things. Lol!
  10. It looks like she’s never had real ballet classes - sad cause you could tell the potential is/was there. I guess there’s a shot she could take some classes and pick up very quickly, but unlikely at her age. I mean there have been a few DCCs who made the squad w/ really rough ballet technique over the years.
  11. Wow - now that is a nice tilt.
  12. The technique/placement in that tilt photo is horrendous as well. Her dancing isn’t as awful as I expected it to be after seeing that photo, but she clearly hasn’t had much ballet training. Good flexibility and power though - has potential, but needs classes. Figure a little too thin and unshapely, but I think that about a lot of girls.
  13. Or they’ll just give SG to rookie girls that they barely know like Kalyssa and others. I thought I read Angela turned down those appearances for a reason like a job? Didn’t know she wasn’t going on them just cause she didn’t feel like it or they weren’t glamorous.
  14. I hate stuff like that - something is stated as “optional”, but then later down the line it’s thrown back in your face about how important it was that you didn’t do that optional thing and now it is held against you. Sadly, there is a lot of that grey area optional stuff in dance and dance studios. Then sometimes those in power aren’t even consistent about it either and there’s a double standard. For example of something I see a lot, there will be an offer to be in, for ex., 12 group numbers after an audition, but only 6 if them are mandatory. Group numbers all cost money and time to be in - big cost difference between doing 12 and 6. Some parents will say my kid is only doing mandatory groups to save money - it’s supposed to be optional, right? But then next summer their kid is penalized in various ways in the studio for not doing all the groups (offered lower quality groups next season, put in a lower technique class than other dancers of similar ability, etc.) - all cause they didn’t pay for those extra groups which really have nothing to do with how good of a dancer they are. Stuff like that irks me. It’s like you always got to go overboard and do everything and anything offered in some of these places cause the next thing you know you’ve hurt your kids experience and can’t recover - seems like the DCC is the same way, but w/ grown women. To me it sounds like what happened to Angela was a similar thing. They told her the appearances were “optional”, and she might have even had a work or family commitment for why she didn’t do them, but then held it against her later for an opportunity she wanted when she had cleared her schedule and was ready to do SG. But then they also go ahead and put Rookies in SG who have never even done a year on the squad and they really know nothing at about their level of dedication, so there is a compete double standard. I guess I can see both sides where these places want only those who are “all in all the time” to get the best opportunities, but they should probably spell out the consequences for choosing to do less a little better at the time of decision and not after the fact. However, I’m sure revealing how things really are/work would probably make the organization sound really petty (cause they are), so no team director, etc. would have the guts to admit that out loud.
  15. Mia probably looked the worst doing that combo compared to the girls around her. Spastic and without style. Normally the instructor is the best. I felt Alexis looked really good - she managed to look sexy doing it, where some of the others looked a little harsh. I’m not a fan of that combo in general though - not feminine enough or something.
