Bored by Dance

Ok, I'm never actually bored by dance.  But I caught an episode of Paula Abdul's "Live to Dance" show On Demand, and wow oh wow is it bad.  Some of the acts look so under-rehearsed, ill-prepared, and sloppy they'd never make it past the first round of SYTYCD.  And even some of the talented acts come off as overly competition-oriented (shiny, sparkly, cheesy).

That being said (and despite their costumes), I kind of dig this group "Twitch" from Florida:

And this sweet ballet duo from San Francisco called "White Tree Fine Art":

Yes, the red Christo-meets-Cirque-du-Soleil thing is distracting and stupid, but if you can get past that, the dancing is quite lovely.  (Click here for the HD version that CBS won't let me embed.)

Have you seen "Live to Dance"?  What do you think?

I was wondering if you were watching this.. I totally agree, very little actual talent. The White Tree people are okay, but I wish they would just dance actual ballet instead of just standing stationary and doing a bunch of lifts and poses.
