Explanation


The point of the sentence is to emphasize contradictory aspects of Belanger’s dancing: we are told, for example, that he seems “at once intensely present and curiously detached.” Looking at the second blank with this point in mind, we can see that the sentence is saying that Belanger draws attention in some way that would not normally be a means of doing so. The only choice that fits, therefore, is “deflect”; focusing or overwhelming attention would certainly be expected to draw it. And since employing “unrestrained enthusiasm” or “unattractive gawkiness” would not be ways of deflecting attention, the correct choice for the first blank is “undemonstrative panache,” another paradoxical term, since “panache” means “dash or flamboyance in style.”

Thus, the correct answer is undemonstrative panache (Choice A) and deflect (Choice F).
