Don't Let It Change You! – Health and Fitness through Dancing

Friday, July 6, 2012   Ok, I’m a retired choleric. After so many years of dancing, running, and life, I have become a sanguine. I haven’t laughed this much in years. Yes, I’m a list-maker melancholy deep in my heart, and I do try to please others as a phlegmatic, but now, it’s time to laugh and be happy. The …

DWTS Season 14, Semi-Finals

Tuesday, May 15, 201 I can’t believe we are down to the semi-finals already!  Last week my predictions were correct with a double elimination…Roshon Fegan and Melissa Gilbert left the show. Four stars will dance two dances, and only three will make it to the finale. I have no idea how I’m going to predict this week? William and Cheryl …

DWTS Season 14, Week 8

Tuesday, May 8, 2012   6 Stars remain and a double elimination is coming.  Last night had 2 dances, a Ballroom round and a trio round.  First the Ballroom round… Donald sold the Tango this week with strong movement and sharp transitions.  His frame has improved, but he still needs to pull up and be taller.  Donald’s footwork was good, …

DWTS Season 14, Week 7

Tuesday, May 1, 2012   This week is classical week.  As for last week, my predictions came true… Roshon and Gladys were the bottom two, with Gladys being eliminated. Gladys was a class act and had a descent amount of talent.  Unfortunetley, not enough for this season. Starting off classical week is our classical singer, Katherine Jenkins, performing a Rumba …

DWTS Season 14, Week 6

Tuesday, April 24, 2012     Oh no, I knew this one was coming…  Say good-bye to Gavin DeGraw.  Nice job Gavin, there is just stiff competition this season. Motown week was kicked off with some good, old school music and from Smoky Robinson and Martha Reeves.  The original artists were there to sing live while the couples danced.  Too …

DWTS Season 14, Week 5

Tuesday, April 17, 2012   It was Latin night on Dancing with the Stars and Santana was playing, so you know it’s going to be a good night!  This is the best intro and exit music that DWTS has ever had. Jaleel and Kim opened the show with a booty shaking Samba.  He is hoping to get high scores this …

DWTS Season 14, Week 4

Tuesday, April 10, 2012   Are you ready to rock?  It’s rock week on Dancing with the Stars! We’re going back to good old Quiet Riot!  Sherri and Val danced an attitude filled Tango, which matched both of their feisty personalities nicely!  She had nice poses throughout the dance; however, the short skirt with the high boots made not so good …

Friday, April 6, 2012   “The difficult I can do immediately. The impossible will take just a little longer” Toni Yamin – Arthur Murray Dancer Toni and I were dancing just a few days ago, and we were really ‘cutting the rug’ rehearsing the Charleston and the Hustle for the Arthur Murray Centennial Party.

DWTS Season 13 Semi-Finals – Week #9

Wednesday, November 16, 2011   Alright, so Nancy Grace FINALLY went home.  Now it’s on to the the Semi-Finals and three dances will be performed by the remaining contestants. First up is my guess for going home this week, with the lowest scores of the night, Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.  We’ll see if that prediction holds up by the …

DWTS Season 13 – Week #8

Tuesday, November 8, 2011   Well, I was wrong about Nancy Grace getting eliminated.  David Arquette didn’t deserve to go at this time because he was improving, and improving faster than Nancy or Hope. Oh well, can’t always account for audience voting. Up first is Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke doing a Quickstep to “Take On Me”.  His footwork was …

DWTS Season 13 – Week #7

Tuesday, November 1, 2011   Last week after all his hard work, Chaz Bono was eliminated.  This time the judges, viewers, and I, were right!  Now only six couples remain for Halloween week. David Arquette and Kym Johnson danced a Cha Cha to “Abracadabra”!  The real magic trick here was David’s transformation since week #1.  I would never have imagined …

DWTS Season 13 – Week #6

Wednesday, October 26, 2011   The first time in weeks that someone who deserved to go home, actually did.  Say goodbye to last week’s eliminated star, Carson Kressley. This week’s theme is Broadway, and two dances for the couples, one of them being a group number.  This should be interesting.  The opening number isn’t from a star, but the Broadway …
