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 …

DWTS Season 14, Week 2 Eliminations

Wednesday, March 28, 2012   The time has come to eliminate the first Star on “Dancing with the Stars”!  Predictions can be a funny thing when you clearly have scores to go by; however, this show has proven time and time again that viewer votes can be very powerful! In this case, after two dances, the 1st eliminated Star was …

DWTS Season 14, Premiere

Tuesday, March 20, 2012   It’s time to kick off season 14! Derek Hough is back with E.T.’s Maria Menounos, dancing the sexy Cha Cha!  She is beautiful and likable. You need to watch this show just to hear her crazy laugh…(And I mean crazy)!   She hit her steps well from pose to pose, but the parts that you …

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 #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 …

DWTS Season 13 – Week #3

Tuesday, October 4, 2011   With scores only spanning from 17 to 23 last week, viewer votes became of the utmost importance.  With Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy landing at 21, you would think they would’ve survived another week. Now that we are at Season 13, the ‘Pros’ and the ‘Stars’ have fan bases, so that means Val and Elisabetta didn’t …

DWTS Season 13 – Week #2

Tuesday, September 27, 2011   What a show this turned out to be!  With two of the most athletic dances, for some it was a real struggle.  For others, they really came out of their comfort zones.  Last week, Meta World Peace (Ron Artest) was eliminated and wouldn’t have stood a chance with either the Quickstep or the Jive. The …

Health and Fitness through Dancing – Using Your Resources

Friday, July 22, 2011   No excuses! Get this, we have a student who went on an extended road trip, and has been taking his lessons via SKYPE!  We connect with him on an iPad, point the camera, and dance.  It is the coolest thing since sliced bread! Wow, I can’t wait to share this with other students who think …

Dancing with the Stars – The Finale!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011   All the Stars were out tonight!  Musical greats such as, the Black Eyed Peas sang their killer song, ‘Don’t Stop the Party’, and Josh Groban surprised Petra Nemcova while she was dancing, with his song, ‘You Raise Me Up.’  All the Season 12 cast even returned to perform for the finale!  Well almost, Wendy Williams …

Tuesday, May 24, 2011   Tomorrow night only one will take the Mirror Ball trophy! Good luck Hines, Kirstie, and Chelsea! It is anyone’s game.  Tonight each will perform a judge’s choice and the infamous freestyle. The judges picked a Samba for Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas.  They want to see a more sexy and sultry Samba from Chelsea.  She …

Dancing with the Stars – Week #9 Elimination

Wednesday, May 18, 2011   Let the eliminations begin!  Of course with 2 perfect scores of 30 and an extremely emotional performance, Hines Ward and Kym Johnson made it to the Finals!  I saw that one coming, we’ll see how the rest goes. Now for the first special guest of the night:  Stevie Nicks, a member of the Rock n’ …

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 …
