Alek is from Sacramento. He was so nervous last week. He is a big believer in sound effects in rehearsal. Funny. Cute dance. Wow at the lifts. Some incredible strength in this. If I am being totally honest, this is more of a showcase for Lindsay than it is for Alek. She has a lot of great stuff to do in this. Alek is a great partner for her in this though. He is totally there for her. I just wish she put a bit more jazz stuff in this for Alek. But this is the second week in a row that Alek has definitely exceeded my expectations. If anything, I was a bit hard on this dance because I wanted to see Alek do more. He can. And I want to see it. Good for him.
