I know it’s not natural to perform with your face, practice.” Maksim: “I’m going to continue with Julianne’s thoughts, I didn’t think you were going to do good, but you had great lines. You can let your emotion be a part of the dance.”Bruno: “Very nurturing and very caring, technically the feet skim the floor, you need to caress it.” Carrie Ann: There were was no time for her thoughts, but she gave it a thumbs up!
