This past weekend, a Katherine Jenkins TV special aired across Britain. It was called “Steppin’ Out With Katherine Jenkins”. To add to all the entertainment and fun, Dancing With The Stars pro Tristan MacManus joined her in a “Argentine Tango” segment. From all the dances on the special that she performed (a waltz, an Argentine tango, a tap routine and a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers), she said the Argentine tango was the toughest since it’s “so technical”, you have to be “really strong” and it’s “the most intense”. Below is more from TV Choice.
You’re performing a waltz, an Argentine tango, a tap routine and a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. But which of those is the most challenging?
I think probably the Argentine tango is the toughest. It’s so technical and you have to be really strong. It’s the most intense. But I was lucky because I had one of my dance partners from America, Tristan MacManus, over, so I did the tango with him.
You can read more on the special at TV Choice. You can also see a fun picture of Katherine and Tristan. And here is the dance at the 35:00 minute mark….
Wow, these two make a hot dance pairing and maybe even more so than she and Mark Ballas? I love her lines and extensions with Tristan’s height and longer legs. Beautiful and so passionate!
