– What’s your most awkward dance? – Like, some kind of like,
twerking, type-thing. – Some twerking type-thing? (funky mid-tempo music) – I thought that was good. – No! (upbeat music) – Hi, I’m Timmy. It’s very complicated. I always wanted to be a
dancer when I was little, but growing up in the
Mormon community of Utah, I was too scared to be a ballet dancer. And, so now I’m a stripper, and bartender. Okay. Oh, okay. Okay. I love it. Yeah! Hi.
– Hi. – I’m Timmy.
– I’m Tracy. – Tracy. Do you know what a plié is? – Yes. Would you like to see it? – I would love to. (soft music)
Ooouu, yah! Ooouu, great! Can we do a grand plié? Okay! Awesome! Can you twerk? (funky music) Yaaas, with the ponytail! Okay, you’re really good at that. I’m gonna guess that you’re probably not part of a company
right now or anything, but you love going out and dancing. – I do a style called waacking. Have you heard of it? – No! – It’s a dance style
that started in the 70s in the underground gay club scene. – Oh!
– Yeah. And it’s oftentimes confused with voguing. Have you heard of voguing?
– I do know voguing, yeah. – Yeah so, voguing, east coast, waacking, west coast. Yeah.
– Oh! – I’ll show you waacking. – Yeah, please do. (smooth music) That’s so fun! (Timmy and Tracy laugh) I love that! So, I would rate like a three. – That’s fine. (Timmy laughs)
– Oh, that’s fine! – Hi, how’s it going?
– Good, how are you? – Van.
– Van? – Based on my appearance, what kind of dancer do you think I am? – Um, I wanna go with like
street, or like hip hop. – Oh, I’m a hip hop dancer. – You are. Could we get some hip hop? (funky music) Okay, okay. How bout some modern dance? Awesome, that was great! Can I see something like really silly? (goofy music) (grunts) Okay, so you have a lot
of like core strength, and like body control. I’m gonna give you three and a half. – Alright, I’ll take that. (Both laugh) – Anya.

– Okay, yeah! Let’s see some club dancing. (smooth music) Okay. Let’s see some ballet. Can we see some ballet?
(sighs) (soft music) Awesome, okay. I’m gonna give you 2.5.
– Okay, yeah. – Yeah. – Yeah, this is not anything
that I excel at by any means. – Why, you’re good! – So, I do competitive Irish dancing. – Like river dancing? – Yeah, river dance is a show that made Irish dancing really popular. – Awesome, can we see some of that? – Yeah, let’s get a
little slip jig going on! (fast paced music) – I love it!

– No, absolutely not! (laughs) – Can we get some twerking here? (funky music) Here we go! I need to think of a genre I’ve missed. – So I do Bhangra, which is a
traditional folk Indian dance. – Oh, can I see that?
– Yeah! (funky music) – I’m gonna give you a 1.5. Okay. But it’s only because
you’re not very good. (both laugh)
(drum roll) How bout like drill squad? – What? (scattered laughter) (stadium music) I’m gonna say don’t do that.
– No? (both laugh) – Let’s try some ballet. (whimsical music) Yes. Really? (laughs) You have a lot of training. Well I’m gonna rate you 5.
– Oh thank you! – Clearly, you’re really good. Do you go out club dancing? – Occasionally, yes.
– Okay. (upbeat club music) Can you like salsa? – I can salsa. (upbeat salsa music) – I had to take that moment, I’m sorry. (both laughing) Are you straight?
– No. – Great. – Are you straight?
– No. Thanks for asking. I’m gonna give you a 3.
– Okay. – Have you ever cheered? – No, I’ve never done cheer.
– Anything like that? Okay.
– I pole vaulted. – Okay. Have you ever pole danced? (laughs) – I’ve never pole danced.
– Never pole danced. (soft music) So pretend you’re on top of a bar, and you have a pitcher of
water you can pour on yourself. Can we get some like sleazy
bar top music, please? (sleazy bar top music) Good. (clicks tongue) (funky music) That was really cool! I’ve always wanted to be able to do that. I’m gonna give you like 3.5. – I mean, I’ll take a 3.5 from you. You’re a tough judge.

– No. Did you really think it was good? – It was fun. I’m gonna give you a 2. I obviously haven’t seen your strong suit, so just based off what I’ve seen. – Okay, can you like re-rank me after? – Yeah, I will.
– Okay. (soft music) (clapping) – I’ll re-rate you at 3.
– A 3? Oh! – 3.5. I’m feeling generous!
– Alright. (laughter) No, I don’t want the pity 3.5! (laughter) – That was fun! How’d you guys feel I did? I was harsh? (laughter) My favorite? I loved Tracey, I loved Abby-Jane, and Nolan, I loved Nolan. Okay. Now I really have to judge. (upbeat techno music) (soft music) (slow music) We’re good! (laughter) (clapping) Judging on your technique. Your emotional vulnerability,
and your commitment. You. – I won? – No! Abby-Jane.
(laughter) You may sashay away. (laughter) Tracy Chante is dead. (laughter) He’s not my favorite! (laughter and clapping) (upbeat music) Oh waack off! (clapping)
