Dance Academy: Crush-splosion

Posted on Mar 22, 2012 by Lisa

This week on Dance Academy, there were sooo many crushes, from Tara's girl crush on Kat's mom to Sammy's crush on you-know-who (if you watched).

Spoilers below -- don't read any further unless you've seen the episodes Perfection and Crush Test Dummies.

Tara, girl-crushing.Last night, during "Perfection," I was really surprised to find out that Kat's mom was Natasha Willis, a famous ballerina -- and Tara's idol. Doesn't that kind of stuff usually come up in conversation between friends? I agree with Abigail (for once!) about the situation. It must suck for Kat to know that her best friend is crushing madly on her brother and fangirling over her mom. It's like... "What about ME?"

I loved that Tara dyed her hair green, though. Yay for crazy-colored hair (even if it's just temporary).

Tonight's episode, "Crush Test Dummies," had lots of crush talk, and I could definitely relate. I loved Sammy's quote "You can't control a crush," especially knowing how hard he probably tried not to have a crush on Abigail. I felt so bad for him when Tara and Kat joked about it, without realizing it was true. I'm dreading the moment Abigail finds out... I can't imagine that she's going to take it well.

I liked the Christian / Ethan storyline, too, because I feel like we got a better sense of where they're both coming from. Ethan seems to care a lot about his dad's opinion. Christian was willing to blow off the dance performance, but he wasn't willing to let Ethan get hurt.

Hey, you know how Tara says she has that fantasy about seeing her crush just after he's been in a fight for her, and he's a little bit injured? Is that something other people feel? I'm pretty much the queen of crushes, but I have NO interest in seeing any of my crushes bleeding -- even in my daydreams.
