In a new blog at People, Karina Smirnoff says her and Randy Couture’s Cha Cha is ‘Playful, Flirtatious and Sexy’. Oh, this is going to be so good. Here is more…
Going into this week I told Randy, “Remember, at the end of the day, we are not just doing a combination of steps.” Just steps and moves without any meaning to them is boring and pointless to watch. The steps are the mechanism that tells the story. The story in the foxtrot was graceful, suave, romantic, and strong. With the cha-cha, now I want to show the naughty side of Randy Couture! Our cha-cha is super-playful, flirtatious and sexy.
You know when you go out on the town and you have an amazing time and you let your hair down? (Well, Randy constantly will laugh and go, “What hair? I don’t have any hair to let down!”) It’s that party. You’re at the club, you’re dancing. This will have a different strength and different feeling from the foxtrot.
This Monday is “My Jam Monday,” so we’ll be performing to a song that Randy likes to listen to. We have an amazing story. Randy has so many experiences in his life that make him very unique, so we put a story from Randy’s life into the dance. It’s really cool and I’m excited. And I get to be a pinup. That is always one of the fantasies you want to come true!
