Mad Hot Ballroom

And then, you've got Cuban motion dances.
If they're able to use Cuban motion.
They get better points, of course,
if they are standing nice and tall.

How do you deal now with the teams...
who do not make it to the semifinal?
I think one way of doing it is...
make a big deal at the school afterwards...
that, "Oh, this team has been successful.
"They've achieved the bronze level
and that they've gotten that far. "

I also know for a fact that
it is part of learning for life...

preparing yourself for life.
It's not bad not to make it.

You know, you can say whatever you like.
You either win or you lose.
Okay, and if you haven't got number one...
then you have not won, you have not lost.
I mean, you've not won, you've lost.

No matter how much you want to quit...

Second place is the first loser.
And he knows from experience.
Let's do tango, please.
Forte now.
Promenade, please.
There's something special
about seeing a man dancing...

and teaching dance in that environment.
And it brings the boys along.
Yeah, because you don't really have,
nowadays, we don't have...

like a Fred Astaire or a Gene Kelly
necessarily as a role model.

That's from a former generation.
And they see us very much
as like a father figure...

or maybe an older-brother figure.
And so, I think it's important
especially for some of the guys...

to have that kind of validation
from an older male figure...

in a competitive venue, because if you're
cheering them on, you're rooting them on...

maybe they don't have
that kind of encouragement at home.
