This episode we talk about holding each other accountable.
This podcast we look at the hip hop dances in this weeks episode of SYTYCD and talk about how we can apply some of the moves to our weekly technique classes!! Links: 1- Robert and Taylor hip hop by Luther at the 40 sec mark they did a two person controlled wave into a twist o flex into a reverse wave. Robert was in back he wave it to her knee and she brought it back up doing a twist o flex with her feet body and then rolled up! 2- Logan and Allison - lyrical hip hop Choreo by Chris Scott 1- at the 42 sec mark to about the 45 sec mark Logan does and worm wave down to the ground, then shoots his legs thru to the front, puts a foot on top of the knee then rotates under to a freeze! But then this fool rotates the freeze to the other side into a plank! https://youtu.be/ngMrrRu2FSAA 3- Mark & Dassy Style: Hip Hop Choreographer: Chris Scott Mark and Dassy were in the bottom three last week, so this week they were paired up, ready to prove why they deserved to stay. And they had umbrellas! (Raise your hand if your teacher has ever handed you a prop and you've panicked, groaned, and generally freaked out.) This piece was cute, and we have to give major props (get it?) to Mark and Dassy for dancing with tricky accessories and never dropping them. That's tough stuff. It's been said that opening an umbrella inside is bad luck. We'll get to that... The judges said: Vanessa said these two together = a lot of fun, and that they absolutely crushed it. Mary said it was "the cutest thing ever." And Nigel said it was fun. TL;DR: Everyone was fantastic tonight and no one should go home. But this isn't an "everyone gets to stay and be BFFs" show, it's a competition. Which means that after last week's votes, the dancers in the bottom three are Kaylee, Dassy, and Koine. https://youtu.be/iH7MAImjHGk At the 1:23 mark Chris hit em wit the classic moonwalk! We can't teach this enough! also the 26 sec mark to 30 sec mark, they did a floor move, knee switch and fall into crooked legs then shuffle legs and roll up thru hips
