DWTS 21 Week 9 – Alexa PenaVega & Mark – Contemporary – VIDEO

Mark is giving Alexa a big pep talk after last week’s mess-ups. Alexa is reminded that when she was filming a movie, producers told her she was too fat. It lead to an eating disorder (bulimia) and so this dance brings up some strong feelings in her. Mark really wants to go there with the choreography. He will be representing the eating disorder in the dance as Alexa represents herself. Very strong choreography from Mark here. This is one of those extremely raw contemporary pieces. Alexa is without question pulling out the stops with this one. She is doing some fascinatingly strong things with her body here and Mark is a great partner with the lifts and all. Alexa performing her strongest routine of the competition- and at just the right time. Just an emotionally charged performance from beginning to end.
