I love this show.  I never did ballroom dancing but I danced for about 10 years when I was younger and I loved when we got to dance to 'modern' songs.  My favorite year was when we did a tap dance to a NKOTB song.  It was very popular and fun!  Sorry...but I like it!  LOL!

I like the show too.  And I have to admit, at first it bugged me that they did ballroom dances to modern or....different songs.  But now I kind of like it.  So many people think (or used to think) of Ballroom dancing as boring adn stuffy.  But I think this show has shown people that you can do different kind of ballroom dances to any type of song -- classical, country, R&B, 50's type songs.... Ballroom dance is so much more than just strong frames, choreographed steps and pretty costumes. And can be watchned and appreciated by a variety of people and of all ages. Anyone can enjoy it and it definately isn't an ancient form of dance!  It can be very relative to this day's music and audience.  And I enjoy that the show's showing that! 

although - many of couple justdon't cut it and don't do justice to the type of step they're trying to preform.  And I've notice that some of them try to dance to the music, with throwing in some ballroom steps.  Which I don't like -- and I've noticed that the judges hate it too!

It's all in good fun though! With some people though - I'm SO surprised at how well they do and how fast they learn and improve! It's amazing!

I agree that you can dance ballroom to more modern music.. but I dont agree on dancing mambo to some other type of music.. there is a tempo for the steps and the couples are trying so hard to keep up and dance "to the music" but they cant perform their best.. like the last time they danced chacha to some type of hip hop music.. OMG that was disastrous.. she could not keep the timing and they only did one real chacha step.. that's ridiculous.. aren't the judges supposed to be knowladgeble of dance steps?  It's like when you take a really nice pair of jeans.. that you absolutely love and fits you great and just cut it up.   I dont know, its just my opinion.. I love to see these shows, I just mute it and watch the moves.. lol
