  • Quotes

  • Good dancer/teacher.

    Good person. Love how she is not some too thin dancer.
  • Some may hate on her unfairly, but she is a fabulous dancer!

    I don't know why people hate on Lacey so much, but she is a great dancer! Even if she didn't win So You Think You Can Dance she got fourth place out of the thousands who auditioned! Seemingly people like and dislike her because she is related to Benji(go Benji!) but seriously, she is a fabulous dancer. She is a fantastic partnerer, her solos may not be the best, but still, they bring something new and exciting to the dance floor, instead of the usual flips and spins and cartwheels. So, Lacey Schwimmer is a force to be reckoned with, and she is an amazing dancer!moreless
