That was so full of content, it was very good.” Carrie Ann: “There was action, but what was most impressive is the focus you had on Emma, it was so powerful.

Overall your best dance to date.” Bruno: “The moment I saw you I wanted to see a rumba and I wasn’t disappointed. You let yourself go.” Carrie Ann: “I agree with Len and Derek about your turns.
