I saw Witney Carson and Lindsay Arnold from SYTYCD rehearsing in that AT&T dance. Please, show do not bring them on
I swear I fucking knew they would do this. She didn't impress me at all on SYTYCD. I think Witney would've been better.

I am floored that they picked her as a pro. She's like a high school kid that won a contest to be a pro for a day. If TPTB think she's the new Julianne, they will be sorely disappointed.

She only had one competitive Latin routine and didn't have ballroom at all.

She did dance for Mark's team in that Ballroom Battle thing with Brandon Armstrong. Ever since Brandon and Brittany Cherry won that first kids' competition on DWTS, I figured they would keep an eye on him as a potential future pro. And last season, we saw Brittany in some pro numbers.
Looks like they are actively scouting younger dancers. Maybe those Utah kids (and their cross-training) are on a fast track? With Mark and Val turning 27 this spring, there should be an opening for a young male pro very soon.

I said it before that the show keeps trying to recreate Julianne and it's not working. It especially won't work with Lindsay. Maybe Witney. That's a big maybe in quotations.

I will say I have seen people with very little previous ballroom training learn (and learn to teach others) pretty quickly and well, so who knows. However her ballroom dances bored me to tears on SYTYCD, so I'm not optimistic about her chances of doing well on DWTS.

We also barely saw Lindsay dance Dancesport in SYTYCD, so I don't think we've seen enough to really know what her technique is like. We certainly have no idea what her choreography is like since Dancesport competition solos aren't reflective of how people will choreograph for others.
I'm not optimistic about her doing well on DwtS because she clearly lacked an ability to connect with the audience on SYTCD. However, I do think I saw a lot more of her personality in some of Cole's behind-the-scenes home videos, so there's a chance she may surprise us all.

I was surprised to learn about her connection with Mark Ballas; I feel like every pro should get at least two seasons under their belts before being shown the door, but I don't see any of Mark's influence in her teaching or dancing at all.

Agreed. The only thing good about DL's Cha-cha-cha is it showed how good Cheryl is on her own (for lack of a better way of saying it). Lindsay and Victor? Not so much.
and her dancing is not good enough to cover for her partner's lack of ability.

Was that when it looked like she backed (bumped) into Victor and they both seemed as if they had both forgotten what to do next? The whole dance seemed as if they had no idea where they were supposed to be in relation to one another. I also thought that there was an unintentional lift in there when he was supporting her and they were rotating.
Was I the only one that saw Lindsey pretty blatantly mess up her own choreography in the rumba?

I just didn't really care for Lindsay. She seemed completely overwhelmed, lost and in over her head as a pro this season.
In fact, I think they should make all new pros go through a season or two of being in the troupe first.

Interesting,,that's usually the way Maks teaches.
Last night it seemed as if all Lindsay did as far as choreography was tell Victor "Here, hold my hand, stand over there, and I'll move around some and then I'll tell you where to stand next."
