Sasha posted the video, called “Sasha Farber Boys break part 2,” on January 4. It’s just the pro rocking some lightning-fast solo moves to Pharrell William's "Happy" from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. This is definitely not how we look when we’re dancing by ourselves at home, but that’s probably why DWTS didn’t hire us.
It's always great to watch the pros just unleash all their talents in a way they don't often get to do when competing on the show. They have to cater their dances to the celebs so the stars are the ones who stand out. We do get to see the pros shine in the troupe and pro bumpers and occasional featured pieces, and ABC has done pretty well at keeping the pros in the spotlight even without a Results Show. (Please bring it back, though!)
Sasha and Emma Slater, who happen to be an adorable real-life couple, both had their first seasons as competing pros this past fall. Sasha's first partner, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, just tweeted more support for her buddy: "Follow @SashaFarber !!! He's a gummy bear that dances like Patrick Swayze.”
You heard the woman: Go follow Gummy Swayze and tell The Powers That Be we want him and Emma to return again for this spring’s Season 18!
