There are times when I don’t understand what the judges see in certain dancers, Christopher Griffin, aka “Mr, Strange,” is a founding member of Dragon House, the crew that gave us Cyrus in Season 9 and Blueprint in Season 10, I didn’t think he was very good and wondered if he would get through choreography, so I was surprised when the judges gave him a ticket, I guess they need to have so many contemporary dancers, so many tappers, so many hip-hop dancers and so on, After a montage of different way dancers try to be noticed, such as blue hair, body ballet dancewear for toddlers paint and costumes, Conrad Dechabert of Kentucky walked on stage without a shirt so all of tattoos were on display, He had tried last season but was told he danced too feminine, so he was back to show his masculine moves, Lil’ Buck said he was a strong dancer, but while Nigel agreed, he also said Conrad’s face was too “smiley and light.” Yes, he got a ticket..
Ultimately, it came down to one seat, Virginia’s 94th District, where Democrat Shelly Simonds emerged from a recount with a one-vote margin over the incumbent Del. David Yancey, R.

This year’s program entitled “A Cappella — Our Bodies Sing” features the Oakland Ballet in collaboration with three local a cappella vocal groups. “It’s been an amazing process putting this together,” said Graham Lustig, Oakland Ballet artistic director. “It’s so creative watching the dancers and choreographers try different dance combinations to this very powerful music.”. Lustig utilized his own considerable choreographic skills by pairing with Nona Brown and the Inspirational Music Collective to create “Stone of Hope.” According to Lustig, Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Had a Dream” speech was the catalyst for his work.
