There were some WOW moments from Tuesday's performances.  This is what we really liked.

Although Alexis was ultimately eliminated, she and Nico gave us the first WOW moment of the evening with a powerful and complex Contemporary performance, choreographed by Sonya Tayeh.  Scroll to about 0:43 for the dance.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

Curtis had a shoulder injury and couldn't dance, plus he was eliminated...double whammy.  Hayley took advantage of her partner's woes and created our second WOW with an Argentine Tango she got to dance with the amazing Leonardo Barrionuevo.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

Jasmine and Aaron made the next WOW with a nuanced Contemporary piece choreographed by Justin Giles.  I love how the sharpness is contrasted with such delicate transitions.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

Dance of the night goes to the Contemporary group piece created by Bonnie Story for seven of our Top 14 - Tucker, Amy, Fik-Shun, Makenzie, Jasmine, and Aaron.  This one gave me shivers.  Scroll to about 1:09 for the dance.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

Yeah.  Wow.

    Thanks for the wrap-up. I think there must be a pattern to my not watching this show. It has nothing to do with not liking the dancing, but I think I defer to the teen who lives with me who has viewing preferences on some evenngs. It's all good. inshare then come here and catch up. GGG
