So I saw that they’ve released the photos from the 2021 calendars. Did I see it correctly that they’ve just used the photos from the shoot for the 2020 calendars? And Rachel has made the cover 2 years in a row. 

Yes it was confirmed earlier they were using unused photos from last years trip since they couldn't have one this year

Tess is more Cajun than anything. I think her Native American js like half of America - somebody with dark hair has a granny who was an Indian princess or whatever. My moms fam has a similar look - prob a lot of French, Spanish, Italian, and we joke the Indian part is probably “Blackfoot” but who knows. I like Tessss look and think she deserves to be there. Maybe not triangle but def DCC.

Tess was asked if she was Native American on her DCC takeover. She said she was Cherokee I thinkkk and another “tribe”. Sorry if that’s the incorrect terminology I’m not from North America.

I remember a DCC in Motion with Lisa, Gina, ? And ? Bridget.  I remember many thought Lisa was subpar to the other ladies.  There was some pretty turns... that’s all I got.

Sorry if this was on the list and I missed it...there was also the Christmas DCC In Motion with the Dancing with the Houghs. I remember Amber was in it I believe Gina and of course VK. I think Caroline was the 4th.

Why they put Lisa and those hoppy fouettes and then whatever that flyi ng camel move is supposed to be? with Bridget and Gina 🤷‍♀️. Gina is fire but I think Bridget is the better performer here. Dang I wish she’d stayed but totally get why she left.

Leaving aside my school teaching experiences... in teaching kids, teens, and adults to ride horses and show: give me folks with less talent BUT a ton of discipline and desire for the sport over folks who are naturally gifted but have a poor attitude or lack of desire any day! When I think of it, the same was true when I was teaching in the classroom. A good attitude and discipline (and team work) allows me to teach the skills and usually results in a much better competitive group.

As to telling heritage, my husband is 1/2 Mexican, 1/4 Blackfoot Indian, and 1/4 German. He is green eyed and light blonde! Genetics can always give surprises.

It's hard to keep to the topic as there is really nothing more known about what is going on in the current DCC world. I would love for someone to "spill some tea". Seems like we have been waiting forever for something to happen!

Would you rather have 36 Maddies who won't get into trouble and have proven themselves of the last 5-6 years? Or would you rather have 36 drunkards who travel outside of their work area when they shouldn't and could possibly infect someone with a disease?

They are humans so both. Kat, Daphne, Caroline etc aren't criminals lol. It's been said there was a misunderstanding and I will believe that because why wouldn't I

Bridget was one of the only dancers who could pull my attention away from Gina. Hannah too,  sometimes. 

I really wonder what I fail to see in Gina besides looks. My eyes literally never gets drawn to her 😂

This one would’ve been so much better without Lisa. She’s a fair dancer but doesn’t have as much technique or showmanship at Bridget or Gina. Erin or Briana would’ve looked better in this piece instead.

As a former dancer who was never really a turner, I practised pirouettes but only ever had a triple in any routine. As Queen Kitty always says, don’t do shit you can’t do.

Fouettes are so technical and very impressive when done well but equally look dreadful when you can’t execute them and start hopping around. 

I’m sure Lisa has plenty of other tricks she could execute much better!

The average is 5.3 black women per year - 14.7% of the standard 36 member squad.

I'm seeing 8 names for the 2020 squad.

She was trying to do inside spot changes and it just looked a hot mess, because she didn't stay on the beat and whip her head to the new spot properly. I've seen several girls do outside spot changes throughout the years for their solos, but I think the only one I remember doing inside spot changes was Maddie in show group auditions back in 20216 (at least on the show). You have to have so much control and be so clean with your movements to make those look decent, and Lisa just doesn't have that. She also could not stay on releve for anything and doesn't have the flexibility to do the illusion turn she tried after the fouettes. No bueno.

Ah yes.  The video that showed Vic's poor fan kick technique.  This is another reason I find she dances heavy.

Note how Caroline's fan begins from the proper position.  But Vic's beginning is cut short, she's leaning back and no relevé of her supporting foot.

I think she’s attractive, but falls into the personal presence category. Outside of a dozen or two knockouts they’ve had on the show, the rest probably fall into that category, similar to dance blenders.

I know everyone has looks they favor.  It's all good.

"Blender" definitely nails it for me though. 😉

If you find it, please share the title!! I love it too but I haven't been able to find it😕

I know the original song is called "On the Corner" by Trashorama. The original is in all the expected places (Spotify, youtube, etc.) and I've tried Shazam and scrolling through the youtube and insta comments but nothing comes up

Also, Kelly should save a clip of Gina in this video to use whenever she's trying to explain musicality. I never really understood what it meant until I watched this... Gina is spectacular.

Also, they're all really fun to watch and this is by far my fav DCC in Motion. But as a non-dancer even I can see that Lisa's turns aren't the best lol.

I am not and never have been a dancer.  But Lisa has to stop before she twirls (don't know any tech words!!! 🙂 ) to get her balance.  Even I can see that the decent dancers don't have to do that.  They should never have put Lisa with Gina.  It just wasn't fair.  Now, let me think, who could have held their own against Gina?  VK?  no  Savannah?  no Oh, Hannah!  Yeah, let's put Hannah in with Gina.  Oh wait.......

Watching the Cowboys game because the local game up here is Tampa Bay & I cannot watch Brady play for them. Fun that I get to see the Cowboys, they're usually not on here. I think i've seen DCC once from so far away you can't make out anything other than hair color...

A while ago I wondered which hairstyle TPTB would choose for Sydney because on her previous team she switched hair all the time, and historically DCC gives them each a single 'look'

Seems as though they have let her continue to change it up:

Training camp:

Game 1:
