ABC News’Dancing With the Stars” contestants have had to endure a string of criticism over their dancing routines, and this week’s winner of the annual competition admitted she was still struggling to “keep the spirit.
“On Wednesday, “Dancing” season 26 winner Courtney Act debuted a video that was released as part of her celebration of her win, in which she performs a new dance routine.
The video is a remix of her previous routine, and acts like a remix, with her dancing in different positions.
In the new video, Act’s performance is not only slower, but she is also more casual.”
I’m not doing anything really new to the choreography, I’m just going to be dancing to the same music, and the same rhythm, and I just want to keep it in my body,” Act said in the video.
The show has been criticized for not allowing Act to practice her dance routines during the filming of the season, and her appearance on the show is a major factor in that.
Act said she was also struggling with her dance routine on the “Dance” season finale last week, when she appeared to have a hard time maintaining her balance while dancing in front of her co-stars.
Act and her co. also took a hit for their dress code during the episode.
Act’s costume for the finale was not revealed until Wednesday, but the dress she wore was a dark blue one, with a pink skirt and a matching shirt underneath.
The dress is also a shade darker than the other contestants, so the fans speculated that Act’s dress was more revealing than her competitors.”
She is a very talented dancer, and she’s doing a great job, but I think it’s still going to take a little bit of time for her to get it,” “Daring” co-star and “Dances” host Adam Horowitz said Wednesday.
Act has said that she was frustrated that her season was cut short in part because she didn’t get the chance to perform on the finale.”
It was a big reason why we did this season, because it was so hard to get that shot, to go out and dance, to be a part of that, because we had to do it, and we couldn’t do it,” Act told “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.
The contestants have also had to deal with criticism over the past year, when the show became known for a trend of starlets wearing their hair down.
Act, a 23-year-old Los Angeles native, has said she had a number of options for her hair, but her father, Robert, wanted it cut short for “Dancer.”
Act has also said that her father wanted her to wear a wig, so she ended up opting for the one that she now uses.”
That’s not me, that’s not what I want, but that’s what my dad wants, and that’s how he chooses to live his life, and he doesn’t want me to do that,” Act added.
