Since PDH is currently experiencing technical difficulties, I figured I would post Derek’s blog here first. It’s a very interesting read, as per usual. I suggest you all check it out. I’ve put an excerpt of below. It’s pretty much as I guessed re: ghostbusters and his thoughts on losing.
I think you guys are more bummed about my team dance record ending than I am! Team Nightmare totally deserved that win. That was so, so good. I’m not gonna lie — I felt like our song was a complete letdown. Maybe not “complete,” but nothing againstGhostbusters — which I love — but the song was less inspiring. When I saw the other group’s dance, I was like, “That’s the one.” They were just so cohesive, and the costumes and choreography were so perfect.
This week we have the foxtrot. I don’t think Bindi is thinking of foxes just yet. It’s always a little hard going from one of my favorite dances, the Argentine tango, to something like the foxtrot. I’m trying to make it interesting and add some fun elements to it. What’s fantastic about Bindi that I don’t think people realize is that she does her homework. If we do Dirty Dancing or Lost Boys, the next day, she comes in and is like, “OK, I watched the movie and a bunch of videos last night and then I watched our rehearsal video. I was studying them.” She comes in having done all this homework and is ready to go. She wants to get better and is not just all talk. It’s amazing. She’s definitely not of those people who just put in the work while in rehearsal; she goes the extra mile. So, yes, she did watch The Jeffersons after we got that song!
