Eliminations – Dancing with the Stars – Week #8

Wednesday, May 11, 2011 Week 8 Elimination Time…  Here we go…  Definitely making it to the semi-finals are Hines Ward with his partner, Kym Johnson, and Kirstie Alley with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.  Ok, as far as predictions go, 50% is probably not the best average.  I predicted they would both make it to the semi’s, but the Kirstie would be in the bottom …

Dancing with the Stars – Week #8

Tuesday, May 10, 2011 Working their way to the final four was Mark Ballas and Chelsea Kane.  Their Waltz routine told a story in a beautiful way!  The fusion of the Waltz steps and contemporary dance styling was a perfect marriage.  For her to improve, she needs to work on footwork being inconsistent.  With a 10 from Carrie Ann Inaba …

Dancing with the Stars – Week #7

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011 I thought this day would never come, but Dancing with the Stars has a guest judge that is a ballroom legend! It’s Ballroom Greats Week, and  Donnie Burns, who is 16 time undefeated World Champion,  and 11 time International Champion, is on the judging panel.  Amen! It’s group formation time!

Eliminations – Dancing with the Stars – Week #6

April 26, 2011 NKOTBSB – New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys have joined together for a major summer tour and introduced their new single, “Don’t turn out the Lights”, on DWTS.   Though the singing was just OK, the tune is catchy and it was fun to see them perform together. The first two couples that are at …

Dancing with the Stars – Week #6

Guilty pleasures week and  7 couples remain.  This week’s theme is dancing to the music you love, but hate to admit it! Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerskovky opened the show with a pretty good Samba and scored a 26.  She had tons of personality and a great Brazilian shake. Delivering a clean Tango was Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke.  Though …

Eliminations – Dancing with the Stars

The results are in…. If you missed the show, check out my blog at ArthurMurrayDanceSchools.com for a play by play of Week #4’s show. Dancing with the stars troupe opened the show with a dance medley to David Garrett doing a rendition of  ‘Rock this Way’, originally by Kiss.  The troupe is good, but the violinist David Garrett really rocks …

Dancing with the Stars – Week #4

Dancing with the Stars had an amazing twist to the week, the dancers performed to a live 48 piece Orchestra playing Classical Music! Violinist David Garrett played while Romeo and Chelsie Hightower danced a mean Paso Doble.  It was an explosive combination.  His performance was much improved from previous weeks. Romeo’s movement was more committed, passionate, and strong!  His best …

Dancing with the Stars – Week #3

It’s a good thing we got to see great dancing from the Dancing with the Stars troupe at the opening of the show because YIKES – Wendy Williams and Tony Dovoloni’s Fox Trot was painful.  She put in a lot of effort but it wasn’t very graceful! Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, as I suspected, came out with a a …

Dancing with the Stars – Second Dance

Surprise! Surprise! What was once smooth is now rhythm, and who was once good, now is not! Let’s go straight to the surprise of the night – Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burkes’ Quickstep was amazing! Contrasting his awkward Cha Cha, he looked so much more natural and kept up with a rather difficult routine. Not to mention, he received the …

DWTS – First Impressions

Tuesday, March 22, 2011 It turns out Season 12 is coming with loads of personality! Well, for almost everyone…my initial prediction was right: Unless her Quickstep is amazing, say goodbye to Wendy and Tony. Soon to follow, “stiff Mark” and “muscle bound Mike,” who both just looked a little too awkward. Okay, I admit I might be wrong with this …
