“With Ally, I feel like I could really push the boundaries and I’m super excited for one specific dance,” Farber told “Us Weekly.” That routine is the Charleston, which has not been performed at all this season by any couple (but #neverforget that time Brooke and Farber were “assigned” a “jazz Charleston”).
“I really want to push the boundaries. I feel like every week we’re pushing and pushing and pushing, but my main thing is to kind of push her vulnerability, her passion and her devotion to everything that she does,” Farber continued.
The first round of the semifinal is the redemption dance, and the pair will redo their Viennese waltz from Week 2, which earned them a 20. After nabbing the most perfect scores of anyone so far (three), it’s safe to say they will improve upon that 20. But Farber isn’t too concerned with the scores. Well, you can’t actually think scores are the be-all and end-all when you still land in the bottom two with a perfect 30.
“Don’t get me wrong, the scores are incredible. To me, it’s more the judges’ comments and the critiques. I think with critiques and compliments, you become a better dancer in our world,” he said. “I mean, at this stage, we weren’t even thinking scores we were just thinking, ‘Let’s get to the next week.'”
