Tony Dovolani is back with a new blog at In Touch Weekly. In the snippet below he talks of Leah’s growing confidence and how she’s really attacking things now. He also says we’re in for a surprise next week and he knows Leah is going to wow the crowd (sigh). For the full blog, see the link.
I told her I’d keep her dancing and she replied, “You had better!” I see a whole new confidence from Leah and that’s something we always hope people accomplish while doing the show, so it’s nice to be a part of a journey that accomplished that.
And she’s looking good! I’ve noticed that her clothes are a lot tighter and she is feeling good about herself. It’s a great feeling to see your student blossom. Leah actually insists on not stepping on a scale, but she did say the show has changed her body quite a bit and she’s had to change her wardrobe completely. She’s walking tall; not that shy anymore and she’s feeling good about stuff.
She’s really attacking things now and that’s a huge difference. Before she’d get insecure and a little scared before a show. Now it’s the other way around and she attacks things really hard.
On Monday, we danced a regular tango and a jive with Henry Byalikov. The Jive could scare people but in this case Leah was really excited about it and we chose Henry because he and I have a history and we danced together with Melissa. I don’t want to spoil too may surprises for next week, but I know Leah is going to wow the crowd once again. Can’t wait for you all to see what we have in store!
