    can’t complain about not seeing karina. i’ve never rewarmed to her after her bad attitude when she lost to cheryl and emmitt. can’t take those scowling faces back.

    will miss lacey. great addition to the cast.

    who they need to get rid of is the tall new girl last year, anna? while she could teach she couldn’t choreograph worth crap. that hurt irvin more than anything.

    Ii agree about Ana…she is not an asset to the pros and as far as Karina is concerned, let’s face it, the girl can dance but does need to keep her facial expressions on hold.

    I also agree about Ana but will miss Karina. She was the best pro dancer on the show. You could see how uncomfortable it was between her and Max after they broke up. I hope Edita and her partner take it this time but who knows, after two or three weeks on the show stars that you thought would do really well turn out not to be so great. I have a feeling Derek and his partner may win it. For myself I would even be happy to see Max and his partner win it. Time will tell.

    Ana who? Oh her. Forgot her. Karina, she is a great dancer. I agree, the facial expression are seen on TV but hey, it the Brooklyn in her. Still miss ya.

    Will definitely miss Karina this dance season. Karina is by far one of the best dancers and chreographers of all time.

    I thought she and her partner last year were a public relations nightmare. The kid couldn’t keep his mouth shut, crying about the judging, and making totally inappropriate and negative remarks about Max. The two of them looked like a cougar and her cub. Ugghh I couldn’t stand to watch or listen to them. She is an amazing dancer but she needed to sit a time out for this season.
