The Paso Doble is a very stylish dance. It has that in common with the way The Matrix was filmed, and still I was surprised how incredibly well the futuristic Matrix theme lent itself to the dance. The artistic concept was excellent.
The slow-motion section
The whole concept was slick, but from the moment that Katya was being lifted up at her ankle, I knew the choreography was unique. What a moment!
Conviction is vital for the Paso.
Seann’s convincing performance was also a surprise for me. He really delivered the stern and serious conviction necessary for the Paso, which I find remarkable from someone whose talents lie with comedy and who comes across so light-hearted in rehearsal and interviews.
With conviction and a great concept in place, nothing much else can go wrong. Seann’s arm movements were very strong and his movements defined and precise. I am curious to see how he will progress, because so far his performances have been quite varied, which is very interesting.
Here’s to dance and artistry, to learning and to surprises!
