Transcript:

LAUREN FRODERMAN: I'm about to meet Andrew.
We're about to get our groove on.

Hi!
ANDREW: Hello!
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Hi, hi, hi!
ANDREW: I walk in and I see Lauren
Froderman is my dance partner.
I know her from "So You Think You Can Dance." She's an
amazing dancer and her personality is
wild, just like mine.
So it's gonna be a perfect match.
It's just a look back and shake your tush.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: [LAUGHS]
ANDREW: That's all I do.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: He is exactly what I'm looking for
in a student.
Has personality, has confidence.
ANDREW: If I can describe Lauren, it's
definitely not quiet.
She's crazy.
As soon as I got in there, she was running around in circles.
I was running around in circles.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: I don't really know what kind of dance
experience he has.
From the video it looks like he enjoys dancing.
I don't know if that's experience from formal
training, or just going out and dancing with friends.
So tell me, what's your dance experience so far?
ANDREW: Well, I used to breakdance a long time ago.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Oh!
ANDREW: Yeah.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: He's telling me that he can break.
And in my mind, I'm like OK, sure.
You can do little shuffly feet steps.
All right.
ANDREW: All right, here goes.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Whoo hoo!
Oh my gosh!

(IN SLO-MO) Oh my gosh!
Not ready for that!
That was freaking awesome!
ANDREW: Oh my god, I need to sit down.
I'm gonna throw up.
I'm gonna throw up.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Has it been a while since you'd done that?
ANDREW: It's been a while.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: That was awesome!
ANDREW: I got heartburn.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Tell me more about yourself so I can really
figure out what I want to do.
ANDREW: Well, I am--
LAUREN FRODERMAN: 'Cause I want to cater this to you.
ANDREW: I am a father of a little baby boy.
He's four years old.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Oh!
What's his name?
ANDREW: Caylan.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Caylan.
ANDREW: Yeah, Caylan Garcia.
I would say having my son is an advantage, because he
literally is my everything.
And this is an experience that I can do that's outcome could
provide my son with an amazing future.
So I'm glad I'm doing this.
And I'm glad I have my son to give me that push.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Andrew tells me that he has a four year-old
son, which is freaking adorable.
Honestly, we can tap into that into being some sort of
inspiration for this.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
LAUREN FRODERMAN: It's got a little twang vibe.
ANDREW: Yeah, I like that.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: But then, then it adds a little flavor.
We listen to the song, and as we're listening to it, he's
already feeling it.
I definitely want to do something fun.
And I don't know about you, but I think there's nothing
more fun than a good old fashioned hoedown showdown.
ANDREW: The routine is kind of like a country--
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Now back.
And a heel.
ANDREW: A little bit of hood.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Ugh!
ANDREW: Girl, that's you!
LAUREN FRODERMAN: What's up, horsie?
ANDREW: Girl, you the horse, girl!
A little bit of booty popping.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Bam, bam.
[LAUGHS].
ANDREW: That's my favorite part.
That is my favorite part.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Our signature move for this week
is line dancing.
OK, you'll step with your left.
Then you'll go back with your right.
And again with your left.
And then heel it with the right.
But I'm also adding a little bit of flavor to it just to
mix things up.
In, out, in, out.
And step, stomp, agh!
ANDREW: Oh, sorry!
So back, then right?
Back, and then left?
What I would say is being a little difficult in the dance
is probably when the music comes on.
Because now it's to a beat, and you have to stay on time
and you have to stay in the rhythm.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: And horsie back, back.
Good!
I love it!
It looks awesome!
ANDREW: Sorry.
[INAUDIBLE] on that part.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: No, it's perfect!
It's freaking perfect!
We're moving right along at a good pace.
We're seeming to really brush by all of the major obstacles.
We still have the big gun, the biggest one.
Which is learning the choreography and being able to
perform it once we know the moves.
ANDREW: Choreography to me is a little bit
harder than break dancing.
So I'm definitely challenging myself because I've never took
choreography.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Good, Andrew.
Good.
Good, good, good.
ANDREW: Did I get the timing off a little bit?
It's going to be tough.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Jump and a back, back.
Good!
Hey, that looks good!
I really think that this is going to be probably my
favorite week yet.
Don't tell the others.
Perfect!
That's--
ANDREW: Yee!

I definitely think the other contestants should be worried
about me, because I mean, I'm ready to just go out there and
just kill it.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: That was an awesome practice.
The only thing I would say is just probably make sure you
can do one of these by next practice.
ANDREW: Yeah.
Yeah, I got it.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: It's simple enough.
You got this.
Yeah!
Whoo!
Best partner ever!
ANDREW: Let's get out of here, guys.
LAUREN FRODERMAN: Right.
