Asuka Kondoh & Ricky Sun Talk About SYTYCD 2009

Turns out that Asuka Kondoh & Ricky Sun already seem to have a rather nice fan following from their previous appearance on So You Think You Can Dance. I mentioned in one of my other posts that I agreed with the judges about Asuka being a really special dancer and a few people told me that they really loved Ricky. Good news for Ricky.

Fans of Asuka Kondoh & Ricky Sun will enjoy this video of them after last year’s SYTYCD auditon. It’s nice to see Ricky actually get a chance to talk. It’s very true that I haven’t seen many asian ballroom dancers, but these two are really wonderful to watch.

Asuka Kondoh & Ricky Sun SYTYCD 2009 Audition

The camera does like Asuka. You had to know she was a shoe in for Las Vegas after having been there already. Still is a lot of fun to see her audition again. I must admit that I’m a little surprised at the lines that Asuka is able to create. Asians have such small frames. I wonder if she’s really short and how she’d look alongside someone who’s taller. Either way, Ricky and Asuka were both nice dancers.

The thing that Asuka has more than Ricky is the little nuances that attract people to her. The little roll of the shoulder acting shy, the twist of the hips, etc. Some people are just have that quality that attracts you to them. Although, it’s also a quality that may make a bunch of girls hate her. We’ll see how that plays out.

Enjoy the performance of Asuka Kondoh and Ricky Sun to the music “Mercy” Duffy - Rockferry - Mercy by Duffy Read more..
