Dancing With the Stars has a new director and he knows what he's doing. Back in July of 1996 I criticized the director of So You Think You Can Dance for his manic cuts and closeups which made it difficult to even watch the show. There are a couple of comments on that post criticizing me, one of which sounds like it was written by the director himself and another by, perhaps, his personal assistant. Anyway, Dancing With the Stars has a new director, a guy named Alex Rudzinki and it's apparent that he goes to rehersals and knows how to film the dance so as not to detract the dancers. Props to Rudzinski. May he keep this job a long time.
