Her brilliant pink costume is glorious to behold. But we’re not here to see a fashion show. It’s her dancing that seals the deal.
And my oh my, what dancing that IS!
What stands out immediately is Amy’s love and feel of the music. She has the true gift of musicality. Couple that with an incredible infectious positive energy and superb technique… And you’ve got a samba queen ready to strut her stuff!
One of the best qualities of this routine is how Amy spices it up and alternates seamlessly between high energy, percussive samba dancing with sensual hip movement and sudden slowing of tempo. The result? Power and fun when need be, sexy and passionate when the time’s just right.
And she works the crowd too! Okay. She’s damn near perfect.
The video for Ed Sheeran’s song Don’t has an incredible emphasis on dance, plot-involving-ellie-goulding-cheating-etc. aside, it’s a catchy, groovy tune illustrating how dance truly can behave as a story-telling language through the video.
From rags to riches, the expressions and movements of the dancer – growing in confidence and poise throughout his journey, emphasizes and highlights how something as wordless as body movements can convey such powerful storytelling and emotions.
