My three favorite individual dances were not necessarily the highest scoring, since one of them was the Viennese waltz by Tommy and Peta. Except for one moment at the end, Tommy was smooth with his steps in a very romantic way. Judge Julianne Hough called it “a proper Viennese waltz,” judge Bruno Tonioli called Tommy, “watchable,” and head judge Len Goodman, age 70, said to Tommy, age 76, “From one old geezer to another old geezer, you are my hero.”. My next fav was the jive by Sadie and Mark. It was fast, exciting, fun to watch and Sadie looked like she was having a ball. Julianne said, “What you lack in strength, you make up in performance,” but Bruno rose to Sadie’s defense when he said, “I have respect for even attempting such a difficult dance.”.

Councilman Cory Wolbach said he is comfortable with the negotiated rate for Avenidas because it’s a compromise between what other nonprofits pay and the subsidized city space Avenidas is accustomed to on Bryant Street. Wolback gave his support, “Considering what they’re used to paying in rent and how integral they are to the community, the origin of Avenidas being something sponsored by the city.”. Councilwoman Karen Holman questioned whether the city should treat one group differently.
