It’s a routine that makes my body feel soooo old…but such a fun dance!! Time for Stage Rehearsal…good to get these nerves out! Such a great dance, but definitely makes me nervous…. :-/ What’s the Jitterbug without a little F-U-N?!? “
Judges’ Comments: Len: “You are a class dancer, whatever dance you do it is clean and correct. This was more of a glitterbug than a jitterbug. You made me very happy!” Carrie Ann: “You have an amazing way to make it look effortless, you are an amazing dancer. You had a few problems with the lifts. You went for the difficulty and I appreciate it!” Bruno: “Melissa you were fearless, you did not miss a beat. Near perfection you are an amazing dancer!” Paula: “You two fit together like a hand and glove. The footwork was impeccable. The choreography was fantastic. I was very excited about this routine”
