My Poem for Week 10
A darkened ballroom, ticks counting down on the clock!
The switch was flipped, lights shining bright as the sun!
DANCING WITH THE STARS was:
PLUGGING INTO THE SEMI-FINALS!
AN ELECTRIFYING, ENERGIZING EVENING OF DANCE!
PLUGGING INTO THE SEMI-FINALS, the ballroom dazzling, a’glow
AN ELECTRIFYING, ENERGIZING EVENING OF DANCE, grand show
The dancing pairs were given a challenge, two dances it would be
A plugged version, an unplugged version, talent would be the key
The ballroom shook with applause, Tom and Erin issuing the call
Time to plug in the dances, time to begin the grand dancing ball
Each dancing pair shook off their nerves, their feet ready to dance
The audience far and wide ready to see who had the best chance
BETHANY AND DEREK
PLUGGING INTO I WANT YOU BACK
SAMBA – WITH ASSIST FROM SASHA FARBER
Snappy moves, two guys in love with a girl, full of heart
A Central Park Promenade, light, fluffy, like cotton candy
UNPLUGGING INTO I WANT YOU BACK
A picture frame filled with the simplicity of dance
Like a painting coming alive, modern masterpiece
JANEL AND VAL
PLUGGING INTO BLAME
PASO DOBLE – WITH AN ASSIST FROM MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY
Fierce, full on powerful attack, fabulous, as one, force of nature
Crisp as a starched white shirt, powerful, pulsating beats
UNPLUGGING INTO BLAME
WITH TIME FOR THREE – FEATURING A VALENTIN VIOLIN
Connection by a concerto, vibrant, vivacious, gift of dance
Dynamic interpretation, putting the oo in mood, intimate
ALFONSO AND WITNEY
PLUGGING INTO LOVE RUNS OUT
Full of spirit, speed, strength, smoke and fire, fight
Artistry from the Prince of Buenos Aires, glory lasts forever
UNPLUGGING INTO LOVE RUNS OUT
CONTEMPORARY – WITH CHRISTINA GRIMMIE
Poetry in motion, fluid lines, drama, passion, intensity, being free
Partners on the same page, two instruments playing same tune
SADIE AND MARK
PLUGGING INTO PROBLEM
Floaty, flirty, fast stepping, full of speedy feet, detail oriented
Sadie – a shining light, brilliant, bit of Hip Hop and Charleston
UNPLUGGING INTO PROBLEM
ARGENTINE TANGO – WITH NOAH GUTHRIE
Guitar prop, sensational, staccato movements, classy, poised
True to Sadie, powerful, challenging choreography, a connection
TOMMY AND PETA
PLUGGING INTO TAINTED LOVE
Red hot, fiery flame of flirtation, great entertainment
Peta – human defibrillator – MVP of Season 19
UNPLUGGING INTO TAINTED LOVE
Balletic, sweet, endearing, graceful gallantry, magical
Touching, honestly felt between the master and muse
PLUGGING INTO THE SEMI FINALS, two dances were energized and electrified
AN ELECTRIFYING, ENERGIZING EVENING OF DANCE, greatness personified!
