Having taken ballet lessons for 7 years in my youth, I have always loved to watch dancing. I have the utmost respect for the discipline and hard work that goes into each performance.
I find it amazing that the celebrities this year are dancing almost as well as the professional dancers. How can they do this in such a short amount of time? It takes years of practice and dedication to achieve these results. Mind boggling to me.
However, what I do find interesting is the stories of the celebrities this season. In the past there have been many that I hadn’t the first clue who they were. I don’t watch any of the Real Housewives or similar ‘reality shows’, therefore they were not household names to me.
But this season, there seems to be a real effort to get into the heart, soul and spirit of the dancers and show their human sides as well as the struggles and challenges they have faced. I feel that they have done their job of making a real connection between the viewers and the dancers. They have tugged at our heartstrings and we are rooting for them all to succeed.
The dancing has been astounding and I don’t envy the judges job of having to pick just one couple to be this season’s winner.
My vote is for Bindi and Derek. Check back tomorrow night to see if I picked the mirrorball winners.
