Mr. Jonathan and his Moonwalk
No one is thinking “Moonwalk” as Kim and Mr. Jonathan are sitting patiently waiting to be called to dance in this “Spotlight” Jack and Jill. Spotlight simply means that the competitors will be dancing one couple at a time. Events will often do this when they don’t have enough pros for a proper dinner show…The competition heats become the show.
Just prior to going on Mr. Jonathan noticed that every song that was being played was not only the same tempo but also the same genre…hiphop. With a twinkle in his eye he leaned in and asked Kim how good her moonwalk was and a look of shear horror covered her face!
“Moonwalk!?” She whispered through her teeth, “What the hell are you talking about!?”
“Never mind” Mr. J replied, “Please forget I even asked, I didn’t mean to freak you out” They both straightened up in their seats and their names where called…Here is what happened!
In Jack and Jill competition you can take first place with out all of the judges placing you in first. When every judge gives you first it is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a competitive couple. The expression is “getting a picket fence.” Mr. Jonathan and Kim Moonwalked their way to that picket fence on both of their very first competitions. They remain friends to this day and still love dancing with each other.
