It is probably just me because I see some of the professional dancers dance hard and jerky too.
I liked her personality and enthusiasm.

Juv. . . you know better than to expect an outcome based on her dancing alone. Progressing is just some crap the judges throw out when they have nothing else to say. Helio progressed downward last week, should he have gone? Marie & Jane both got their lowest scores and their worst critiques this week. I know you don't like Sabrina but you can't really think she deserved to go this week.

Bryan Still 'Dancing' with Partner

Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas
After weeks of speculation, "Dancing With the Stars" recently ousted Sabrina Bryan is coming clean about her off-screen sparks with dance partner, Mark Ballas. In fact, she's positively gushing. "I absolutely love and adore him," she told TVGuide.com.
And thanks to their shocking October 30 departure from the show, the former favorites finally have time to explore their feelings—starting with a romantic night out this weekend. "['Mark is'] joking that it's our first date," she told TV Guide. "We've always hung out, millions of times, millions of dinners. But this is different."
"We've been so focused on the competition . . . but now that that has died down, we'll see where it goes," Bryan said of their blossoming romance. "We haven't had a chance to do any of that [dating] or even talk about it. We didn't even realize that people would think that about us until they started asking us."
The Cheetah Girls include: (L-R) Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams
and Sabrina Bryan
Bryan added, "Because you get so close to someone, you get so comfortable, that you don't even see it." Though their dances on the show were full of passion, fans really didn't get to see the true depth of their feelings until Sabrina got the boot and she lovingly called Mark "baby" as they said goodbye on air.
Bryan and Ballas are not the first to find love on the dance floor. Mario Lopez and his former partner, Karina Smirnoff moved in together last spring. One of the reasons Bryan and Ballas appeared to have struck up a romance was the serious amount of time they spent together rehearsing.
"He's just so close to me," Bryan said. "And the fact that Mark and I were able to get so close so quickly was so awesome. It made everything so comfortable. It made me able to trust him in ways that would've stopped or held back my performances had I not trusted him."
"I mean, I'm in a music group now with the Cheetah Girls," Bryan continued. "And one of my biggest fears was stepping away from them and not having someone around me that I felt was my true family. The Cheetah Girls feels like family."

Ballas Dislocates Shoulder During Performance
Mark Ballas and Sabrina Bryan
Mark Ballas dislocated his shoulder while performing the Cha-Cha with his partner (and real life love), "Cheetah Girl" Sabrina Bryan, during Tuesday's "Dancing With the Stars" finale. Ballas, 21 — who had been complaining of back and shoulder pains — had injured himself during rehearsals. But during the routine, the pain worsened, Bryan, 23, said.
"He was saying, 'Don't go! Don't go!'" Bryan said. "Honestly, I think he was starting to panic so much that it was hurting that he just started spitting words out. I was like, 'What are you talking about?' You're in the zone when you're dancing and then all of the sudden he pulled me back to reality. I'm just freaking out right now. I've never seen him react like that."
Bryan — who announced her plans to join Ballas on the "Dancing With the Stars" tour — said she planned on visiting him in the hospital after the finale. "I'm not really sure what happened," she said. "He was hurting bad enough to want to go. He's a dancer so he has to take care of his body."
