It’s the week that just might separate the men from the boys…pardon the expresssion. :-) The Jive and the Quickstep, two very fast dances when done properly. People will need grace and frame and speed for the quickstep and quick feet and sharp flicks and kicks for the Jive. And if you’re Katherine, there will likely be polka dots and spats involved. Maybe Buddy Holly glasses or suspenders. ;-) Keep checking back, we’ll add information as we know it.
ETA: Someone is doing a Jive to Proud Mary – but it’s not Gavin. Courtney is guessing Sherri or Jaleel. I will forever associate Proud Mary with Nicole. :-) People are being tight lipped with the running order, although it’s possible it’s not firmed up yet. I would imagine it’s not easy with everyone being pretty good.
ETA 2: Gee, what a shock, William has the pimp spot. Sure do hope he does more than let Cheryl dance around him this time.
ETA 3: Not so much surprised about Sherri going 2nd (doubt it means much right now), but I am surprised that they’re putting a jive 2nd – if they were alternating jives & quicksteps, I would think she would be in an odd-numbered position. So that means we’re going to have either back-to-back jives or back-to-back quicksteps at some point this evening.-Court-
ETA 4: Melissa going 3rd?? This is not a good plan, IMO. And bummer for Jack. -Heidi
ETA 5: Roshon Going first. I would imagine Jaleel is going close to the pimp spot again.

Frankly, I’m curious to see William, Roshon and Donald manage the quickstep. This dance may just tell the tale on each of them. I think Jaleel will kill it. Maria looks great on her quickstep, provided that jump that Derek seems to have stuck in there is not categorized as a lift by CAI – she’s just idiotic enough to pull that, since Maria is a beautiful girl instead of a hot guy, if you know what I mean. William could fall down during his quickstep and still get a 9 from her. Anyway, I think Melissa will come back and I think Martina will be fine, provided that Tony gives her something exciting. Gladys will be adorable again, but adorable only lasts for so long, so I hope she’s learning to dance. I have a good bit of faith in Tristan, but Gladys isn’t as young as she used to be. Katherine, with her experience, should be fine. Gavin – almost forgot about him again and that’s not a good sign – but I can’t imagine either he or Sherri pulling off a good Jive, but one of them will likely prove me wrong. We’ll see!!
