#2 Loved It
I thought the performance was beautiful and I loved the costume!
#1 I wonder when this was filmed
Christiana Bennett is a lovely principal dancer with Ballet West. I am sorry that this video does not show her real talent. The angle of the camera is terrible. She looks very short and oddly proportioned. She is tall and lanky, and very long. The performance felt rather lack luster, and almost as if she was marking it. All the technique was there, but the dynamics were not.Shows as DYTYCD, and DWTS has shown the general public that performance is very important. This "heart" was missing.
