So I got a perfect 30 last night! It was my first one so far and I couldn’t appreciate it any more than I do, especially because I got it during the jive competition. That was a huge compliment from Carrie Ann. Len [Goodman] said yum, yum. It was a buffet. I’m glad he appreciates some of the tricks Mark [Ballas, dance partner] put in there. It caused a lot of anxiety in rehearsal. I want to thank the judges for the tens. I love it!
The jive was amazing. I think Mark and I were both really nervous but once the music started, it was like boom! It’s a high energy song. I’ve never had so much fun dancing as I did.
I think just the energy of the jive is the best. I think we’ve been so serious the past few weeks that just to break out of it and be like YEAH! I think I actually yelled during the dance at one point, like whooo! I felt like it was a party.
Next week, if I make it through, we’ll have to perform two dances. It will mean much longer hours. I don’t know! We’ll do the best we can.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
