CSI 2011 – Saturday Performances

March 28, 2011 by Jo

What an amazing show this turned out to be! Even though this was thrown together, it couldn’t have worked out any better. The best part: the audience.

You might not know this, but those fans are significantly heavier than they look and Shaz makes them look effortless. I’ve seen this number a few times and it just gets better and better. Not only does she worked the crowd, but she did a great job of keeping her straps from falling off!


How amazing was that?! It was even better live, if you can believe it. I love Alice’s knee socks, I love the swing outs, I love the rhythms and syncopation, I love their dynamic together, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the audience watch this dance.


I’ll be honest, I didn’t want to perform after seeing Tommy & Alice do their thing; how could we top that? As Kevin and I stood in our “ready position”, I could feel the energy of the crowd. When the music began, the audience got louder, and every time I swished my skirt, the audience cheered! This has made the list of Favorite Performance Moments for myself, and it was all because of the crowd. I’ve danced the routine better before, but the roar of the crowd was sensational!


Nailed it!


G-dang it! They are bloody fantastic. I find their movement to be super-inspiring and their shapes and lines make me want to wiggle (that’s a good thing)! Well done you two; you totally earned your stripes! It was a pleasure to perform along along side of you.


Sharon choreographed this piece for Rock That Swing (which I’m dying to see but hasn’t been posted yet) and I think it’s a fab little piece. We all were super-sucking in rehearsal, but managed to pull it together for the show. Yeah us!!

    In this CSI 2011, teacher’s performances were so fantastic! I and my friend got energy to those performances, and then we enjoyed social dance time very much that night. Thank you for great performance. :) I think Kevin’s and your performance was the most impressive of teacher’s performances to me. (I like that performance)

    Hi, I’m one of the KLHC competitors.
    It’s so impressive that you scrapped these clips by yourself.

    maybe CSI official channel clips quality will be better.

    You may have already addressed this in one of the fashion posts, but I am absolutely in love with those tights. Where did you find them?

    They’re Woldford tights. I think I’ll be doing a big post on tights here in a little bit. Stayed tuned!
