This week’s episode of Dance Battle Royale was another superior match up! Lilian Brinner and Clara Van Louten! One a professional ballet dancer, the other a hip hop dancer dancing to Taki Taki by DJ Snake!
Lilian has the advantage of her long, slender limbs to lend elegance to her movements, making each sweep of her arm or step of her legs seem to be so much more deliberate with less effort. In the case of Clara, however, the smaller girl has curves to use that gives her dance moves a certain appeal.
An interesting contrast, the pair’s wardrobe played off each other. While Lilian was decked out in black or other dark colors, Clara opposed her in bright colors. The effect visually offers the suggestion of Light versus Dark, good versus evil.
With each round of dancing, Clara’s moves were expertly performed, and yet Lilian’s performance was entrancing. Watching her move was almost hypnotic. Her pop and lock movements had the perfect amount of snap and she flowed fluidly from one move to the next.
