A Review of Amanda's Contemporary Piece on DWTS

Dance is one of the most heartouching forms of expression. Every movement, every dip, and every ounce of chemistry that goes into a routine can sway the emotions.

Last week on Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) Amanda Kloots showed how true that was. Picking a piece to commemorate her late husband, she entrailed the crowd with her every move. The beginning of the dance started with the notion that she had lost her lover, but suddenly, in the middle of the routine, it was as if her partner had awoken from some long lost place in her memories.

The lover, danced by Alan Bersten, twirled her around the floor, keeping her close to him, even planting a light kiss on her forehead before he disappeared. The passion and chemistry between the two was more than words can express, and when Alan left at the end of the routine, it brought the audience to tears.

After a year filled with so much loss, it seemed as if most of the spectators in the audience could relate to the idea of grasping for someone that was no longer there. It even brought me to tears. Nevertheless, this performance showed us that we are capable of something that we haven’t seen a lot of lately…compassion and empathy, and it we are going to find common ground with each other, it probably would help to have a couple more performances just like this one.

Watch DWTS tonight to see Amanda's final performance. The competition to win the mirror ball will start at 7 p.m. CST.
