So, did you tune in to watch Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition’s finale last night? We did. It was probably my favorite show of the season.
Here are my thoughts on the season.
The Finale: Madison and Brianna have been my favorites all season. That is not a surprise as we have featured both dancers on this site before we ever knew about AUDC. Both clearly very talented. I would have been happy to see either one win.
Asia: There is so much talk about technique and granted a 7 year old should not be where a 13 year old is in regards to technique, but the stage presence this child has is absolutely amazing – seriously, you can’t teach that. I would have loved to have seen her dance against other kids her age. That confidence also allowed her to take on being up against two 13 year olds and I love that her Mom did not complain about that. They forged ahead each week without making excuses.
The Moms: I really enjoyed seeing the final 3 girls with their Moms. Each Mom was very supportive, and seemed to know I am here to be Mom, not dance instructor. For dancers, watching Madison and Brianna and the sweet and respectful relationship they both have with their Moms, was a win for me.
Zack’s Mom: Gina, what can I say. I loved her approach to the whole show and to having a son that is a dancer. So supportive of him and I personally would have loved to have seen more of them. My dancer, would have loved to have seen more of Zack – why? Because he is adorable of course!
Kristy & Yvette: Am I the only one who is not sure which one is the instigator here? With editing, I am just not sure. I would like to think they are both nice and somehow, got off on the wrong foot. Who knows, but for me, Yvette seemed to be portrayed as mischievous and sneaky. Kristy portrayed as, I have better things to do than deal with you.
The Other Dancers: Cute and talented. It was fun to watch them be challenged each week. Jordyn is adorable and we loved her Ricky impression last night.
The Judges: Well, if you saw my earlier post this week, you know I’m not a fan of Robin telling girls she sees them as a Pussycat doll! Ricky has a ton of personality, but the finger wave got old fast – anyone else? Abby, love her or hate her, I enjoyed hearing her make corrections on technique – except in hip hop. 🙂
So, would you tune in for another season? Who did you expect to win? Would you make any changes to the show?
