Thanks to Kathy Manabat and on behalf of photographer Jay Schwartz, below are some fabulous takes of “Dancing with the Stars” pro-dancers Louis Van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya as they vacationed together at Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico recently. According to Kathy, Louis taught his LaBlast Master Classes at the resort. Louis and Anna also spent time relaxing poolside and on the beach fronting Casa Dorada, taking in spa massages and enjoying meals at the resort’s 12 Tribes restaurant. They look like they are having the time of their lives, don’t they? We are wondering why we weren’t invited to cover this event live? Maybe next time they will take this into consideration along with free Margaritas! :) For resort information for Caso Dorada, visit this link.
Ok gang, now that the hype has had some time to die down…it’s time to vote for your favorites & least favorites in this season’s end-of-season awards :-) Pretty self-explanatory – just select what you think is the best option for each category and submit it. “But Courtney, you don’t have my favorite listed!!!” Yes, there is an option for write-ins…HOWEVER…
…after the absolute chaos that was the HUNDREDS of write-in votes last season, I’m going to really crack down on the write-in votes. If you absolutely MUST write-in a response other than the ones we have listed (and I took great pains to include the responses that I thought would be the most likely choices for each category), you MUST do so with a certain format in mind…for example, if you were trying to write in “Zendaya & Val’s Argentine tango” for the best dance, you MUST do it just like I typed it – captalize the first names of the celeb first, then the pro; throw an “&” in the middle, and then put the type of dance after that. Examples of what not to do: “zendaya val tango” or “Zendaya tango” or “any dance Zendaya did!!!!” Yeah, especially that last one – you get to choose ONE DANCE, not 13. Any responses that don’t fit the scheme I just laid out are getting thrown out – sorry guys, but I just don’t have the energy (or desire) to weed through 300+ nonsensical, misspelled, & obnoxious responses. Got it? Good. Now vote away :-) We’ll share the results in the coming weeks. Read more..
Check out Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke and Maksim Chmerkovskiy! In a new behind the scenes video for Old Navy, they try their hand at parkour with renowned parkour and free running expert Jesse La Flair. Let’s just say they might have found themselves in the same position as their celebrity dance partners in the past as it wasn’t too easy for them. You can read and watch more at
