DWTS 11 Stat Class: Week 1

Here it is folks! The first performance of the season. If rumors are correct then the first two dances that the celebs are going to try to tackle are: Viennese Waltz and ChaCha. Many thanks to Heidi for posting who is dancing what and their songs… even if she cheated a little ;-)

For those that either need a refresher or new to this, this is how I predict scores. I look at the pro and post up all scores related to that pro in that dance style. Sometimes, there simply isn’t enough information, so I would also compare scores with those of others in similar occupations, age groups, etc… Then with a little bit of averaging things up and putting my own feelings into the matter… I attempt to predict scores for each of the couples… No easy task. ;-)

Granted, who knows what’s going to happen, and this is really all just for fun :D Keeping all that in mind, let’s try to predict the scores…
