I'm not "faulting" anyone. All I'm saying is, I prefer to watch dancers within their specialty. If I want to see ballet, I'll go to The Nutcracker or something. I go watch the Rockettes if I want to see good tap dancing. In the mood for Irish, I'll watch Riverdance or something like that. I enjoy seeing people do what their best at, where they really shine. I have a lot of training in tap and ballet. I took a hip-hop class for two years just to have a little fun and branch out a little. Did I enjoy it? Sure. Should I ever perform it in public? Heck no! I'll stick to what I'm good at.

And for someone to just stay in their zone and never do there best at other things once and a while would be a sad day and a reason for disappointment that the "adventure attitude" be lost. I guess sometimes people shine when they reach for something new too.
As for the show,
I would say bigger complaint with Ice Skating and I never knew that was Fred's rule.

Martha & Travis were good, but it seems like the are "stand off ish" of each other. I don't know what that is. Not that interesting.
Ashleigh & Dimytri (what is with these names) I belive did an awsome job and show interest and integrity. Ashleigh did the best job in character and totally disagree with one of the judges - she is "steeling my heart" - lol - for favorite. Sucker for the smile. Dimytri, big woop, danced well, but that character of the dance just wasn't there.
Natalie & Musa, took a minute to get into it I think because Musa felt his way and Natalie kept the time, that might be different but I like it. I liked Natalie's dress the most. Musa seems like this is the greatest thing in the world that is ever going to hap[pen to him. Just seems so happy to entertain. Class act, but I don't think he is the best dancer.
Donyelle & Benji Dance so nicely together. It was not the best thing to hear Donyelle mispronouncing and not having a clue what she was saying - apeal dropped a few, come on you are a dancer....why don't you know. And it has become distracting how smitten Benji is over her. But they do dance so nice and Donyelle is a "sweet personality." I did like the "play / learn time he did with Dimytri.
Allyson & Ivan - I love the Jitter Bug! I Loved it. Ivan was a little silly and I think Allyson carried the two. Hated the pants, she is now a favorite too - eech getting harder to decide.
Jessica & Jaymz That was the best choreography but the most "unfelt" of performances.
Dimytri & Jessica are my vote out - that sounds bad...oh well.

~ Figure Skating Is My Passion ~
I've only watched a few minutes of the show - all I know is I would not want to be judged by someone who wears a hat so low one can't see his eyes. Who is this wierd dude anyway?
I don't blame you. When I'm looking for performing artistry, I go to the Opera and Ballet - not to figure skating.

So you think you can dance is not necessarily Ballroom Dancing but it certainly uses ballroom in its agenda. We are looking for the best of those contestants who is capable of managing in all the different dances which are part of the show. Not unlike the Olympics Best Athlete.
BTW. I would not take this show all that seriously. It is geared to ratings and those dancers who appear to be winning the votes will be retained on the show.
Maybe I'm not watching properly but Musa does not seem to me to be a dancer. Even with last night's performance which one would expect him to be brilliant, he stood by the gal's side most of the time and let her do the work. But he'll be back.
Donnyelle and Benji did the best job, imo last night.
