Professional Rhythm at Wisconsin State
Report by Kimberley Mitchell
Photos by Park West 1. Andre & Natalie Paramonov. A wonderful couple that tried too hard for me tonight. I would love to see them dance with the ease and the rhythmic ability I know they have and not show how hard they have to work to win. I look forward to seeing Andrey and Natalie's improvement in the next few months.

It was used in a hilarious video with mock interviews that was screened at the start of Saturday night and also to introduce the judges in an impromptu “dance on” (we still haven’t forgiven you for that one Dan!).
