But I remember reading somewhere that they tend to give the "better" potential dancers to the "better" teacher/choreographers and Tony doesn’t fall into that category. They are Maks, Katrina, Lacey, Mark, and (rats, can’t remember her name) the one who is part Asian. That used to include the Hough kids too be they are both gone now.
It doesn’t seem fair to the other pros but I guess that’s what it takes to make the show better. You can’t argue with success. This has been ABC’s #1 most profitable show for the past eleven seasons, twelve now.
I think you were referring to Cheryl as the other "better" choreographer. Louis van Amstel may fall into that category as well as he seems to come up with complicated routines. I think Tony is fantastic. He is my mother’s favorite pro.
I don’t know why but sometimes, now matter how hard I wrack my brain, I just can’t come up with a name I’m looking for. I guess that’s pretty normal after you hit 70, huh?
I have always liked Tony a lot too. He isn’t at egotistical as Maks and seems to be a really nice guy, let alone an amazing dancer. But, I’ve got to say that ALL the pros on the show are VERY talented dancers AND choreographers. But some just a little bit more than others. If I had to pick one above all the others, I’d have to say it was Mark, not necessarily his dancing, but because even the judges often comment on his great choreography.
