When John Lindo and Nicola Royston arrived to perform at the 2013 UK Euro West Coast Swing Championships, they didn’t know what to expect. But when the pair get chosen to dance together for a performance, the two performers hop right in. But Nicola’s husband could only watch with mounting envy as the performance heats up.
As the music kicked in, they were all smiles…
As the song kicks in, John and Nicola look to be in high spirits. They are both smiling as they come closer to one another. It would have been a sweet scene, like a father dancing with his daughter, until you notice how close the couple are getting.
As Nicola presses close to John, he presses his cheek close to hers. You can almost see the mischief in their eyes right before Nicola swings her hips in a sinuous motion that makes the crowd howl.
The crowd erupts when John shows off his dance mastery…
John plays to the crowd and dips his partner low. He swings her in a slow sweep then pulls her back up for the first move in what could only be called a passionate couple’s dance. If this were the climax of a dance-based romance movie no one would bat an eye.
But what makes this dance especially powerful and captivating is the clear chemistry between the performers.
John won several awards and championships in dance while Nicola is a long time tv performer who was born and raised in NYC by a theater family.
So fans who knew the performers reputations could tell that the passion was all an act for the stage. These two were consummate professionals who were more than ready to put on a great show. So when they were chosen at random to perform this dance, there should have been no problems, no matter how racy and spicy their moves got.
But Nicola’s husband was watching the entire time and…
Nicola’s husband, was seated in the peanut gallery the entire time. You can see his reaction to the dance early on when he jumps out of his seat after Nicola grinds a little too close against her partner. John even waves a hand urging him to sit back down, while one of the other guys on stage held him back. At one point, he even falls out of his chair since it’s just too much for him, while the crowd laughs.
You might think that this is when John dials back the spice. But you’d be wrong and Nicola certainly isn’t helping.
Just check out Nicola’s strutting steps as she leads the dance. John holds her fingers tight while Nicola owns the stage with the same passion that audiences know these two performers are capable of. It’s a stunning display that’s a delight to see.
But then the music speeds up and things get real wild…
Just imagine being Nicola’s husband and watching the swinging bouncing and energetic steps from these two performers. Hands are held tight, smiles are wide on faces, and their eyes are locked tight. Even when they separate for certain moves, you can feel the support that the dance partners have for one another.
The chemistry and fun is even on full display during the less spicy parts of the show. Just check out the bouncy prance when John and Nicola skip across the stage.
But the standout part of the show is undeniably at the end when John holds Nicola’s hand and guides her in a spin that audiences never wanted to end.
The performance was unforgettable for everyone…except maybe for him
But don’t worry about Nicola or her husband. They are professional performers and know how to put on a great show. But even if his outrage was an act, we have to admit that things got real spicy up on the stage and can understand why he acted like this.
