In spite of a few missteps, I think Kelli is an awesome director of the DCC and I hope she doesn’t retire in my lifetime. Think she’s the perfect mix of beauty, brains and professionalism - while at the same time sympathetic and reasonably compassionate and open-minded - women like her are so rare. All these calls for her to retire in here really shock me.
Re: the episode - wow that Evan Miller’s dancing was AMAZING. I never heard of him but he was blowing my mind w/ his moves - what a talent! And his routine was so fierce. He won me over as a fan that’s for sure.
I liked Tyce’s dance a lot too, but that helper choreographer/teacher he had w/ him gave me a vibe like she wasn’t very nice.
VK looked great dancing in almost all footage shown - I’m not sure how tall she is (didn’t someone say 5’9” once?), but she sure is able to do the DCC style very well for a long-legged girl, which is actually kind of rare (usually taller girls can’t do those sharp quick moves so well, but she does a great job). She has good facials too. Re: her look I agree w/ the poster above that said she needs some layers in her hair - it’s kind of too thick and bulky. I also think it’s a little too pale of a blonde and she’d look better w/ a slightly more toned down or darker blonde. Overall she fits the DCC profile about as well as you can though.
I’m still a big fan of Julia’s dancing and I’m really confused how she got cut but Meredith and Kat somehow survived.
Meredith’s upper body is so boxy - she got a gorgeous face and nice legs, but her figure is not attractive. All the crying is getting way old.
Kelli, even though I love her per the above, did come off as unnecessarily harsh on Madeline. It’s almost like she may know something about her intentions that we don’t?
