Paul Karmiryan and Makenzie Dustman – Hip Hop – So You Think You Can Dance 10 – Video
Sensual and altogether flawless, this routine (set to “Pretty Lil Heart” by Robin Thicke featuring Lil Wayne) played to strengths I didn’t even know these two dancers had.
Paul Karmiryan and Makenzie Dustman play a photographer and model (respectively) in the 1930s, with costumes and little references to dance styles of the time. The concept of setting a 1920s aesthetic to a hip hop routine is brilliant and totally works. Makenzie is scarcely recognizable, to the point where I completely forgot who was dancing until the voting reminder at the end. Watch their video and let me know what you think in the comments!
