I'm not actually a fan of Alfons Haider because most of the TV and theatre stuff he does is rather too conventional for my taste, but this said, 1) that he's doing this is this country is really brave, and 2) while their dances can be a bit hit or miss, the waltz was both fun and just beautiful. And it's nice to see him getting more comfortable.

Seriously, go watch!





Training video, rather adorable.

Like I said, I'm not really a fan, and I haven't even watched Dancing Stars before, but... long(ish) story. I missed the first episode, and in the second the jury vote wasn't good and he and Christine Kaufmann were the last couples left in the end, and you could see it in his face that he was completely convinced he'd have to go. He knows he isn't a born dancer, and then there was the whole Niki Lauda ~protect the chiiiildren~ controversy beforehand... So when they told him he was still in, he simply couldn't believe it. It wasn't the usual happy! relief! saved! hug your partner! reaction at all, just frozen, stunned disbelief. So I'm really hoping he'll get as far as possible, so that when he finally has to leave, he can be reasonable certain it's because of his dancing, and not because he's gay, or dancing with a man...

ETA: Plus, I'm happy they did something as quintessentially Austrian as the waltz, and did it really, really well. Maybe some people will finally shut up now.

LOL! Not only are they graceful, I loved the humor!

So far their choreographies tended to suffer from too much action/'story', too little actual dancing, but this time the balance was quite perfect...
