Lindsay Arnold Dishes on Her Charleston With Jordan Fisher: 'We Wanted People To Feel Like They Were Watching an Action Movie'

Lindsay Arnold and Jordan Fisher came out strong with a superhero Charleston on last night’s Dancing With The Stars that we all enjoyed.

The pro dancer, 23, chatted with JJJ after the show and opened up about Len Goodman‘s comment about not seeing a bit of Charleston in their performance, and how she felt about the performance overall.

“It was so much fun,” Lindsay says. “I was actually really excited about this dance, because it’s the first dance where you’re really getting to know Jordan and who he is and what made him the person he is today. Growing up with all sisters, I did not really read comic books. I was playing with Barbies and that was my thing. It was cool to learn about comic books and to see them through Jordan‘s eyes.”

With their performance, Lindsay was intent on making it as big as possible, like “people were watching a live action movie [with our dance] and I was so proud of how well it turned out.”

“It was beyond anything I could have imagined. Jordan absolutely nailed it and I was so grateful to the show for helping us create a wonderful masterpiece.”

However, when it came time for judge Len‘s comments, she wasn’t really expecting him not to like the performance at all.

“It’s tough…we were really happy on how the dance went. The other judges’ responses to us were exactly what we wanted and we were so happy about those. Sometimes when Len goes on his rampage and moments like that, you have to take it with a grain of salt. We were proud of what we did and we know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and we know that. We know that he loves traditional things and I knew from the beginning that our Charleston was not going to a traditional Charleston.”

She continues, “We were acting like superheroes… In my mind, I wanted to capture the superhero angle more than doing a traditional Charleston. I wanted to step outside of the box and sometimes when you take risks like that, people aren’t accustomed to it and Len, who we all know is the ‘stick to the stereotypical dance’ is like that. He wants to see the traditional styles and I knew that it wasn’t what he likes.

“I can’t say that I was expecting his comment, but I do respect his opinion and I was just happy that everyone was entertained,” Lindsay adds. “Len did say that Jordan was a incredible dancer, and he says that every week. He’s going to have critiques and everyone has their own opinions, but end of the day, they can’t deny the fact that Jordan danced wonderfully.”

“All I cared about was that they were entertained and that Jordan gets better week after week.”
