DWTS Pros Emma Slater And Sasha Farber Talk Of The Highest Highs Of Their Careers And More

In a previous posting we told you about a new Jeff Linett photo shoot with Dancing With The Stars Sasha Farber and girlfriend Emma Slater. Now one of the photos has been released for Agenda Magazine. The two Dancing With The Stars pros also speak about their experiences and highlights on the show with Agenda. Here is a take. I didn’t realize the pair helped to open the 2000 Olympics.

Combined, you both have an impressive dossier. Having appeared on several TV shows, concerts, and even the opening ceremonies at the 2000 Olympics, how did you pair up as dance partners?

That is the million dollar question. A lot goes into pairing up two people to dance together. From the look to the height to the hair color to the style of dance, it’s very important to have a great combination of two people. Dancing with the Stars has an amazing way of choosing its pros and celebrities. A lot of thought has to go into this VERY important process. It is an amazing thing when two people dance together. It’s just beautiful to watch.

In the ballroom world we have tryouts. This is when two dancers put a dance together, and dance it right through to see how they feel together. Most of the time our coaches are there watching to see if it looks dynamically right.

What is it like to choreograph and dance on Dancing with the Stars? Do you have a favorite celebrity dance partner?

We love to choreograph for Dancing with the Stars, and last season Emma and I did some great numbers to [the music of] Stevie Wonder, Hunter Hayes, Olly Murs, Iconic Pop, Huey Lewis and the News, and lots more. So it was a great season for us, and we enjoyed every single moment. Who is our our favorite celebrity? We would probably say all of them.

What are some of the highlights of working on the show?

To be honest, being among so many great people and dancers, and always taking things to the next level. One of our highlights has to be choreographing the finale opening number on Monday night!

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 .
