Those costumes were not cute, and the prop was ineffective. The concept of the
dance? Eh…hit or miss.
A lot of times Abby choreographs a dance in a style she doesn’t actually know
anything about. This is one of those times. It makes me mad that the girls
didn’t even lean what those hand gestures they were using meant until season 6.
HOW MANY SOLO PARTS CAN ONE DANCE HAVE? This dance was hardly even a group
Don’t Ask Just Tell
Better than Light My Fire, but still not good.
Return to Grace
Essentially a Maddie solo with backup dancers. And a lot of the time I don’t
mind that the dance has a lead if there’s a reason. But there wasn’t. This was
just a standard lyrical dance with no real story, so no need to have a lead.
Don’t like the concept, the music was annoying, and while I do enjoy seeing
Chloe featured, why did she just bring a chair onto the stage and start doing
tricks on it?
Your Dream will be My Dream
This dance had waaaayyyy too much story that didn’t translate in the slightest.
Hear no Evil
Kinda cool, and a little underrated but it is pretty forgettable.
Pretty dance…lots of drama.
Money is the Root of All Evil
1. Did you guys know it’s considered bad luck to use real money on stage? 2.
This dance was okay. The girls had the right attitude but the editing made it
kinda hard to actually see the dancing.
Gone Too Soon
I liked this dance more when I first saw it. Anymore it doesn’t really resonate
with me. The girls do mostly a good job with their characters but the
choreography is boring.
Angels and Demons
This dance s so cool. And one of the rare times when the very first dance of
the season isn’t one of the weakest. And if you watch the girls backstage
after, they were SO happy for Ally, it was heartwarming.
This was the group dance Abby did with Kaeli, Bella, Sophia and Ally. I don’t
really like when Abby choreographs for groups of four but the overall talent of
these dancers is undeniable.
Red Carpet Special
Cute and fun but that’s all I can really say.
Same goes for this one. BUT I love, love, love that Paige was featured in both
these dances. These are dances she does well.
I dunno why I like this number so much but I do. It was just cool and the
costumes were really pretty.
Free the People
I guess this dance is pretty cool, and the girls did well with it. I just
really hate when Asia comes running in with the American flag. It’s nothing
against Asia or anything, I just didn’t think it looked good.
This dance is really funny and the girls looked like they were having a blast
performing it. Pay attention to Asia and Kenzie next time you watch it, they
make good opposites.
This dance is really pretty, and I love the costumes but it’s another one of
those dances where I’m not sure why there’s a lead.
I thought this dance was cute. I LOVED the energy…but I wonder if Abby realizes
that the Brat Pack is actually what people called Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe,
Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy and Ally Sheedy back
in the day…
The story (that actually makes no sense) aside, this is a cool looking dance.
And the song is pretty neat.
Absolutely love this dance. Nia did such a good job as the lead, and I feel
like it wasn’t one of those times where a lead was assigned but the lead dancer
had to share choreography with Maddie or Chloe.
Why Not Me?
Remember that time Brooke was on the senior team for a routine? She did so
great. She blended well and you can tell those dancers were really serious.
Black and Blue
I can never remember if this dance is about bullying or child abuse. Either way
it’s a pretty dance and Maddie was moving as the lead.
Living with the Ribbon
It pisses me off that this dance was in the same episode as the two girls and
the one solo. Because it really was a pretty dance and it got washed out by all
On the Verge
I used to get so confused by the fact that people really loved this dance, but
after watching it recently, I can see why. It’s really good, and I love when
the groups are that big.
BUT Just Be is kind of a better version of On the Verge. Just pretty and easy
So, so, so pretty. And pretty without some long story to try and follow.
Everyone was given a chance to shine, and though the prop was ugly, the dance
itself has always been one of my favorites.
Children with Guns
This number was chilling. And the emotional execution of it from the girls was
fantastic. I’m not sure how I feel about the song but I do think this was a
good number from the ALDC.
