Aly Raisman Is Hoping To Impress Carrie Ann Inaba With Her Next Dance On DWTS

Ally Raisman has penned a new blog at Parade.com. She writes of what she did after the show Monday night. She also gives her thoughts about spray tanning and who has it easier on this show: male or female celebs? Below she gives us a glimpse for what’s ahead Monday night for she and Mark’s new dance. She’s wanting to impress Carrie Ann the most.

Next week, I’m dancing contemporary, and I’m excited to start learning today. This week’s theme is all about the best year of your life, so for me, that would be competing at the Olympics this past summer. This week definitely means a lot to me, and I hope people back home love it, too. I’m not really sure what to expect for our contemporary dance. I’m sure Mark will have some amazing idea like always. The song that we’re dancing to is really beautiful. It’s a song that I listened to every day before I competed during the Olympics and during practices, so it will definitely bring back a lot of memories. I’m really excited to perform to it.

Right now, the judge I’m hoping to impress most is Carrie Ann [Inaba]. I don’t think she’s been very impressed with me the past few weeks, so I want to really impress her and make her think that I went all out and that I didn’t lose character throughout the dance.

I agree how she needs to work on not breaking character. I also think she needs to work on stage presence and personality. What do you think?

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.

PureDWTS Exclusive: Sharna Burgess Talks About Dancing And Her Journey With Andy Dick So Far

This week we had a chance to visit with dance pro Sharna Burgess about Dancing With The Stars and her partner and Andy Dick!!! Before reading our new interview, which dance do you think has been her favorite dance so far and why? If you guessed their Jazz dance, you guessed correctly. She also answered some questions on costuming and how she’s grown as person dancing with him. More below….

What has been your favorite dance so far with Andy and why?

I love all of them so much it’s hard to chose!! But if I had to say one it would be our jazz, he was just incredible and completely became the character. It was fun to create and fun to play :)

What has been your favorite costume so far and what’s it been like putting them all together? All of them have been so cool, but, the Poker Face Week 2 costumes were pure genius!

:))) that one Is definitely my fave too!!! I love getting creative not only choreographically but with the whole production from music to wardrobe and set. Our wardrobe team is just amazing, I take them these crazy ideas and they help me make them work. I’m hoping to keep that same unique vibe to our look for the whole season.

Andy remarked how you’ve helped him grow as a man and a person in the Access Hollywood interview, how has he helped you too?

He’s helped me challenge myself artistically. Funny isn’t normally my strong suit, my strengths are passion fire intensity and power, so I’ve had to find another part of myself to create these routines. His a wonderful human being and I’ve loved being a part if his journey.

If you were to describe you and Andy’s journey in three words, what would they be?

Beautiful, Emotional, Rewarding

And it’s been that way for many of us too!!^^ THANKS SHARNA and we can’t wait to see you and Andy dance again this coming week!!!
