Dancer Tribute 1/1/12: Lacey Schwimmer (Redlands, CA). Happy New Year to all dancers of all dance styles. I first saw Lacey Schwimmer in Season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance 2007. That season was my all time favorite, as I voted for Sabra Johnson, Danny Tidwell, Neil Haskell and Lacey Schwimmer throughout the Season. The Sweet Dreams dance with Sabra & Neil is my favorite dance from all seasons on SYTYCD. Mandy Moore was nominated for an Emmy for that routine and I think she should have won. I also remember watching Lacey’s brother, Benji on Season 2 of SYTYCD and I really love his dancing as well. I also love to watch Lacey’s father, Buddy dance. He was on Dancing with the Stars this past season and he sure can cut a rug. I loved the clip when Buddy was giving Chaz Bono some tips on dancing as well as his appearance in the Finale Dance with Chaz and Lacey. I did not realize that Lacey’s mom was also a gifted dancer, Laurie Kaufmann. I love her dancing as well. The talent of dance was truly passed down from Mom & Dad to son & daughter. They are the First Family of Dance! What a talented group of dancers, all in the same family, amazing. Congratulations to the talented Schwimmer family, I look forward to seeing them dance in 2012.

Lacey’s peacock costume was my all-time favorite costume from Dancing with the Stars.
