What a special treat for dancing fans and fans of Karina Smirnoff and Maks Chmerkovskiy!! The two Dancing With The Stars pros were interviewed on Good Morning America today for their three week run in Forever Tango. Karina looked stunning as always in a black and white lace dress and spiked heels. The women of the cast were wearing the same. Karina says the show is full a lot of passion. Maks talks of how special it is and how he and Karina “have come full circle” (*total awww moment). You can watch their interview in more detail and them dancing with the cast at Good Morning America at this link. Jimmbboe has coverage at his You Tube page (works for International viewers). Hotness!! For ticket information for how you can see the show, see Forever Tango.
Stay tuned. Maks and Karina also did a “Forever Tango” segment for Extra. It will be aired on the show today.
ADDING: The Washington Post has a great article on the show with Maks and Karina as well. Here is a take…
When they dance, there is something effortless about their movement. The slender, beautiful Ukrainian-born Smirnoff seems to melt inside the torso of the hunky, muscular Chmerkovskiy, also born in the Ukraine. They think their intimate past can actually aid the tango, which should be sexy if done right.
“I think it helps. With every dance, you go to your experience, to your emotion, whatever you can relate to. I think with Maks, we both can go to a place where —” Smirnoff says.
“No one’s been before,” Chmerkovskiy interjects with a laugh.
“Exactly. We had our ups and we had the lowest of the lows and we can take that into the dance and make it than much better,” his partner finishes.
“Aside from what transpired, I do have respect for her as a dancer. We went to a bad spot at one point or another but it’s been documented: I’ve never lost respect,” he adds. “I’ve always been looking forward to one day get this out of the way.”
ADDING2: And here they are on Extra with Tony Dovolani. Good stuff….
