Here’s to the “Ballroom With A Twist” shows in Florida this week!! For tickets and scheduling information (and info on who the pros who will be dancing), see this link. Below is a teaser from Keys News as they chatted with Val Chmerkovskiy about the show.
“Yes, there is definitely a difference in that Ballroom with a Twist doesn’t include the competition factor,” Chmerkovskiy told The Citizen Sunday. “But I love live performance, no matter what. I love being on a stage and the energy that goes along with it.”
Ballroom with a Twist also includes audience interaction with the performers and a question-and-ansewr session at the end.
“Fans of Dancing with the Stars can expect to see us perform different and exciting numbers during Ballroom with a Twist, and they can get to know us a little,” Chmerkovskiy said. “This show combines incredible performance with a very intimate, and cozy kind of feel because of the interaction we have with the audience.”
Chmerkovskiy said he has not been touring with Ballroom with a Twist for all of its performances, but said he is excited to be in Key West, where he visited several years ago.
I will admit it’s no accident that I happened to sign on and be available for this show, which happens to take place in Key West in February, said the dancer who was born in Ukraine and moved to Brooklyn when he was 8.
