DWTS 13 Cast Rumors – Twitter Coincidences!! (Or Not)

Ok, so I was digging around a little tonight (yes, I have Dancing With The Stars on the brain! lol :) ) and noticed Chaz Bono has recently added Karina Smirnoff & Mark Ballas to his “followers” at twitter. I also noticed he never replied back to Lisa Stanley of K-Earth radio when she said, “YAY! Can’t wait to c u on DWTS.” Wouldn’t he correct it or deny it if it weren’t true (like he has on a recent wedding rumor to his girlfriend)?

Chaz has also recently added Kirstie Alley and Mackenzie Phillips (sister to Chynna Phillips, another rumored celebrity to dance as well this season) to his twitter followers.

So, could this all mean something or not….or is it just coincidental and Chaz just likes Dancing With The Stars and the celebrites and dancers above?

Note: Karina is not following Chaz….yet. Neither is Mark!!

Here is a twitter screen shot from Heidi: Read more..

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Anna Trebunskaya And Jonathan Roberts Teach Detroit Ice Dancers Latin Moves

Recently Anna Trebunskaya and her husband, Jonathan Roberts, travelled to Detroit to work with some of the ice dance teams from the Detroit Skating Club. The ice dancers wanted Anna and Jonathan to teach them some Latin moves to incorporate into their dancing. Below is how Anna described the experience.

“We wanted to get into the essence of the dance, trying to bring out the charisma of the samba,” says Trebunskaya. “I gave them a few pointers and a few technical things.

“It’s quite interesting to work with skaters because you can’t really talk about footwork,” she adds. “They’re on the ice and have to keep gliding and doing their proper placement of the blades and all that stuff. It’s really working from the waist up. Of course, some partner stuff and some chemistry. Maybe creating a story a little bit.”

Below is how some of the ice dancers described Anna…

“Right away, from the first minute, we could tell that she’s the real deal — her intensity and her enthusiasm for ballroom dance and especially the samba came through,” says Weaver. She and Poje are huge Dancing with the Stars fans and were thrilled by the opportunity to work with Trebunskaya.

“We tried to soak it all in as much as we could,” she continues. “Even when she would demonstrate an arm movement or something pretty small, we tried to capture it and use that for ourselves on the ice.”

You can read the article in full at Ice Network. Anna also explains the two essential parts to being a dancer ….being able to perform yourself, but also translating it to other people and teaching them how they can do it. Great read!!

More Dancing With The Stars Maksim Chmerkovskiy In Canada

MontrealTV in Canada has posted a little news article and video of Maks when he was in Canada this past week to take part in the Salsa Rengue 3 Anniversary. Be sure to see him being interviewed and shimmying it up with fans at the link at the Thursday Club!! They ask him about Canada and why he likes it there. He said he loves the European vibe. He said he use to come to Montreal every Valentines Day when he use to compete. The rest of the video is in French, but, still fun to watch none the less. :)

If you haven’t seen our earlier posting of Maks and this event, be sure to do so here. You can see a picture, link to a video, and read how PureDWTS reader Evaine described the event as she attended it and saw Maks in person. I’m betting she hasn’t come down from Cloud 9 after seeing him yet. Huh Evaine? ;)
