Nigel comments on the choreography which was provided by a previous dancer. He did comment that Lacey has to make sure that she uses Danny as her partner. For Danny, Nigel says that what he has been lacking in technique he made up in performance.

Mary shocked some when she told Danny this was not her favorite. She thought it was lacking in technique. The audience was not happy and there were plenty of boos. When it came to Lacey, Mary thought she was fabulous.

Mia thought it was the sexiest dance so far in the season. She calls Danny the stallion of dance.

It is not all work and no play when it comes to these two super dancers. When they were working with their choreographer ( Jean-March Genereux) for the Viennese Waltz he would get a little aspirated with the two dancers who wanted to do just goof around a bit.
