Louie Vito footloose but stiff as a board on 'Dancing With the Stars'

The website Stomp and Flow writes: "While Louie Vito has no trouble spinning threes, sevens and nines in both directions on a snowboard in the halfpipe, he has his hands full in spinning The Foxtrot with his dance partner, Chelsie Hightower, on ABC’s smash hit television show, 'Dancing With The Stars.'

"We will keep our fingers crossed for Louie to make it another week."

Outposts would like to add that footloose Louie, in the accompanying video, looks as though he's merely trying not to trip up his partner as he goes through the motions. Relief seems to pour from the athlete when the dance is over.

You've got to hand it to him, though. He's trying his best, just as he always does in the halfpipe. But Louie has never looked that stiff in the halfpipe. Maybe it's the suit.

The three-night season premiere episode concludes tonight. We'll see if Louie makes the cut.
