Drabble - Apologize

So I’ve been thinking about ‘The Rumba That Never Was’ these past days and what would happen if they listened to ‘Apologize’ (the song they trained it too) again and this is the result. Have fun.

Apologize

It doesn’t technically count as a real meet-up but it’s all they are going to get for the next week so they try to make the best of it. 30 minutes in between rehearsing with Janel and shooting new scenes for K.C. Undercover. Not enough time to  have lunch in a café or really talk about everything that’s going on, but enough time to buy two sandwiches at the kiosk around the corner and sit in Val’s car in the parking lot in front of Studio 6 so Z can jump out of the car when her time is up and Val can drive back to rehearsal, ‘accidentally’ returning five minutes late.

I was just looking back at the Sway Valdaya dance, and at the end when Z did the little skirt lift while V was gawking at her legs, she actually looked towards V to make sure that he saw it. She knows what she's doing. And he loves it. LOL

Hi! Just wanted to ask how you knew that they did a Rumba to Apologize by One Republic... Thanks x

This answer is for valdaya-thewanted, ultraec and lovestoned-perfect. Sorry for the late reply.

So in week 7 every couple had to train 3 dances for the dance-off: Cha-Cha, Jive and Rumba. One couple chose who they wanted to dance off against, the other couple chose the dance. Andy & Sharna danced a Cha-Cha against Ally & Mark, Z & Val jived against Karina & Jacoby, and Peta & Sean did a Rumba against Kym & Ingo. So every couple did just one dance but they had to be able to perform all three; They trained all three dances. And they all trained them to the same songs:

Cha-Cha: Brokenhearted by Karmin
Jive: Good Golly Miss Jolly by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Rumba: Apologize by OneRepublic feat. Timbaland  

So never forget they actually trained a Rumba. They rehearsed it. They had to be able to perform it. Even though Val asked Karina & Jacoby to choose the Jive, he and Z had to perform the Rumba at some point. And they did it to Apologize. And there’s probably footage in ABC headquarters. And I just want to break in and find it.

(Also there’s footage of what it might have looked like. Val and Oksana did a “Jumba” for Life’s a Dance. The first part of that performance is a Rumba - coincidentally to the same mix of Apologize that was used on DWTS for the dance off. That Rumba also includes steps that we have already seen in Valdaya’s Contemporary and later in their Week 10 Cha-Cha, so it would make sense that Val would incorporate these steps when teaching Z the Rumba. It can’t be the exact Rumba they trained for the dance off because Val and Oksana’s performance includes lifts and they aren’t allowed in Rumba but we are all sure it comes very close to what it would have looked like - this is also strengthened because the 2nd part of their performance is Valdaya’s Instant Jive and Val later continued to perform Valdaya dances with professional partners.)

I think we need to freak out a bit more over this song. We might not have seen it, but they did the Rumba to this. They trained it. They danced it. To this song.

I wonder if they sometimes hear the song on the radio and one of them starts blushing. We know Z connects their dances to the original songs (she started dancing their Freestyle in a shop when Beauty and a Beat played) so I’m sure she has the Rumba on her mind too and cannot unthink it whenever this song plays.

This is the last call. I hope to have the collection posted by the end of this weekend at the very latest. I can, of course, add people to the list after it’s published, but I would like the majority of it to be complete before I do. So please send in your submissions!
In other news, you guys are absolutely fantastic. Everyone I’ve talked to has been extremely nice and I’m having so much fun interacting with new people. Thanks so much for supporting me while I put this together!
