The last edition of “Let’s Dance” had the motto “Magic Moments”. And Amira Pocher provided what was probably the most magical moment of the evening. The 29-year-old’s dance was about her nonexistent relationship with her father, who left the family when Amira was three. After more than 20 years, she recently saw him for the first time.
With her personal story and the dance that accompanies it, Amira caused goosebumps in the studio. Even her husband Oliver Pocher, who was in the audience, was in tears after his wife’s performance. The “Let’s Dance” jury was also absolutely amazed. Motsi Mabuse, for example, commented with emotion: “I experienced my first ‘magic moment’ today. Thank you for telling your story, for showing your vulnerability. Dance is so important and such an outlet. You could feel everything you were doing. Sensational, pompous.” The fact that there were 30 points for the dance was just a matter of form.
Her dance partner Massimo Sinató was particularly proud of Amira last Friday. Already on the show, he sang a song of praise for the mother of two. He also captured a very special moment of her that night.

Amira Pocher: The recording shows her pensive before the performance
On Monday, Amira posted a black-and-white photo to her Instagram account, showing her in the living room of the “Let’s Dance” studio. Seemingly deep in thought, she watches the dance floor. To this she wrote:
“I almost forgot to show you this picture. Massimo took it before our performance and MY magic moment. I think it speaks for itself.”
She also underlined her touching words with a black heart emoji. She also thanked her fans: “Thank you for the thousands of messages that have reached me since Friday, for all your stories and above all for your confidence in telling me them.”
With her dancing, Amira apparently spoke to the souls of many people. Her husband Oliver also made it clear once again how proud he is of his partner. Below the photo, he commented:
“An incredible performance.”

Instagram users could only agree. They also noted how touched they were by Oli’s reaction. “Seeing you was heartbreaking! It must be a great love” or “And I cried because you cried! You share a very special love and story”were just two of the comments.

In an interview with RTL, he then said of his emotional outburst: “It doesn’t happen that often that you get so emotional on TV, but it was also an emotional moment. Amira danced it very well and it was an intense story because it was really about this separation from her father.”
He also knew what this dance meant to her and what an effort it was to “just get a video message myself,” he added, adding: “It really is a ‘magical moment’.”
At the age of sixteen, Leni Klum shone with her mother Heidi on the cover of “Vogue” in Germany – since then she has been an integral part of the modeling world. Born in New York, she has already been in front of the camera for big brands like Dior and even released her own fashion collection with “About You.”
