This week’s theme is flexibility. Physically and otherwise. Everyone will do a solo this week by doing ethnic inspired routines. I just want Nia to come busting onto stage and perform Laqueefah. The winner of the challenge gets to choose her style.
This is making me hungry.
For the group challenge, Gina Starbuck will teach the girls a Harajuku inspired routine.
We know Jordyn’s not flexible with that crimping up in her hair.
Asia is falling behind in choreo once again. There’s more concern about Madison’s ankle, but no one knows if the moms are being real or just want the bitch gone. Abby comes in, and it’s time to watch the challenge.
I don’t really understand why the theme is Harajuku. To me, it just doesn’t read without costumes. It’s like saying the theme is steampunk, and then having them just do any old dance.
I guess the vaguely Asian arm movements count as Harajuku.
Abby singles out Asia to sit on the side and watch because she is a beat behind everyone else. She pulls Madison and Jordyn out of the running for the challenge as well. Abby announces Brianna as the flexibility winner, and she and her other choose African.
Back to Madison and her fucked up ankle. The medic thinks that she needs to take a break, otherwise she needs to be honest and speak up when it hurts so she doesn’t tear anything.
The Little Asia That Could is going to do a French Moulin Rouge style solo. Oh this sounds appropriate. She knows that she has to bring it to the floor and dance better than ever to prove that she belongs here.
Amanda is rehearsing her Latin solo, and her mother says that since it’s in her blood, they need to represent. And she keeps saying “we” need to dance, and “we” this and “we” that, and I’m like, girl, it’s Amanda dancing, not you.
Madison’s doing her Indian Bollywood style dance, and seems to infer that their whiteness is a detriment to their theme this week. She’s hoping her achille’s ankle problem won’t be, well, an achille’s heel for the dance this week.
As long as nobody shoots an arrow in it, maybe she’ll be fine.
Jordyn is practicing her Asian solo, and she’s kind of adorable with her sword prop.
She definitely has the other girls on her Death List.
Kelly is acting like teach-mom yet again, reminding Jordyn not to fuck it up. Just please, keep calm and be nice about the critiques, please, Kelly.
Anthony Burrell is trying to get Brianna to really feel the pain of many years of slavery and hardships that Africans have had to go through to put that emotion into the story of the dance.
