But let's not bum everyone out too much, because we've got a Tyce DiOrio Broadway routine to rehearse! It's a silent film, Tyce tells us. Vitolio's the director and Asuka's the actress. Well, who plays the cards that show us the dialogue. Asuka says there are a lot of staccato movements and locking, which she's never done. Likewise, Vitolio said he had to really work on the locking, and he could tell Tyce was getting frustrated. Well, I don't think Tyce is really the kind to be shy about letting you know when he's frustrated. Then they all hug, so I guess Tyce isn't frustrated anymore.
So they're dancing to some frigging song or another from Chicago, and there is a fake old-timey movie camera set up on stage, and apparently Vitolio's film director dresses like Charlie Chaplin, or maybe everybody did before talkies were invented.
For some reason, she has a balloon that she lets go right away, and then Vitolio adjusts his tie and then goes out and lifts her into a splits, and they do some Broadway kicks and jumps, and then Asuka is behind the camera, and then she jumps onto his back, and I liked it more than the hip-hop routine. I mean, at least Broadway routines are supposed to be a little gay.
But Adam starts talking about the luck of the draw, and how they followed a really emotional piece with a real character piece. I don't know if I would have said the Taboleon piece was overly emotional. Anyway, Adam says the result is that their routine comes off as a little more artificial. Really? A Broadway routine? Huh. He does say they danced very well, and very clean, and it's clear they're very good dancers.
Mary tells Vitolio that he didn't disappoint Tyce like he was worried about, but she herself was a little disappointed. She feels that they just played it safe. Nigel says the same thing, that they really needed to put more of their personalities into it, but instead seemed too worried about their lines, which he does say were wonderful. "The choreographer can only do so much, and you had to bring yourself to the party, and you didn't quite make it tonight," he says, and Cat cheers them up by chirpily talking about how this is the first show, and we can all grow from here. Well, somebody's going to get cut, Cat. They can't all keep growing.
