I WANNA SEE!!! It's almost like watching a free part of a concert show haha. Yeah, i know a concert is where people sing. But most of the time a show won't be complete without dancers!!!
When i look at a performance, i sometimes notice the dancers around the singer or behind the singers and i am VERY impressed that most of the time, they dance with much more passion and energy and force than the singer lolol. Fair enough though, that's why the singer is a singer and the dancer is a dancer.
And also ah, sometimes when i look at the dancer's face, actually they quite chio one leh!!!! Haha. And then it makes me think, WHY are they not the star!!! And that if i am also chio, and if i can dance the steps better, i wanna be standing in the centre lah!!! I don't wanna be dancing at the back!
But i guess this is why they are call professional dancers!!!
They dance for passion and love for the moves and grooves. And to make the whole show more action-packed and phenomenal. And i think for that, these ladies deserves lotsa credit!
If you're thinking of joining the competition already, you might wanna look at pictures of past year's ABCD here. See for yourself some of the best moves and prepare yourself on what to expect!
