Lysacek a perfect 30 with Argentine Tango

Ballroom dancer Katrina Burch sat down with Figure Skaters Online to evaluate Olympic Champion Evan Lysacek and partner Anna Trebunskaya’s samba, which the couple performed on last night’s Dancing with the Stars. Team Evanna performed last among the couples, who also participating in a team dance challenge.

WOW. just WOW. Evan’s dance tonight was FANTASTIC! I knew  that he would have a very good Argentine Tango. It’s a very strong, very “male” dance and he worked it. His technique was outstanding and emotionally, I could have used just a tad more machismo from him but over all it was an excellent dance. I’m so very happy that Evan and Anna got the first perfect 30 of the season.

I also thought that Team Madonna (Evan’s team) did a better Cha Cha than the other team. They had better synchro than the other team as well as better choreography and all around dancing.

Best dance: Evan and Anna
Worst Dance: Tie between Chad/Cheryl and Nicey/Louis
