Hey Dancettes, do you remember the “Ballroom With A Twist” blog written by Lois, and her friend, Kathy, from when they say the show in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on August 10th? Well, Lois sent us sent us some fun “Meet and Greet” pictures for when they met Sharna Burgess and Val Chmerkovskiy. These are adorable and check out Sharna’s face when she didn’t receive a hug too. So cute. Thank you Lois and Kathy for your pictures.
If interested, be sure you see KITV. They have a fun interview up with Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Sharna Burgess, and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. The Dancing With The Stars pros talk on Ballroom With A Twist and the importance of dancing. This is just part 1. KITV will air Part 2 later.
“All of us travel and do charity work constantly because dance bring smiles to people and that’s the best healing you could ever have,” said Dovolani.
“Dancing has always been a very healthy activity, no only physically, but for your mind and soul. You see people come out of the dance studio happy. Tired in a good way,” said Smirnoff. “So, this is one of the things we do during the show. We want the audience to get up and actually start moving with us because that gift, that passion for dancing is for all of us. We want to be able to share it with people that love the show and love ‘Ballroom With A Twist’ and, for us, it is the opportunity to do it.”

We here at PureDWTS could not be more devastated and saddened to learn Sharna Burgess has not been picked as a pro for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. If you need a way to voice this like we do, please fill in the blank in comments and maybe producers will hear our cries!!
We love and will miss Sharna Burgess on Dancing With The Stars and here is why: _______________(fill in the blank).
…..BECAUSE Miss Sharna is one the most lovely, most passionate, most powerful, and most creative choreographers and dancers this show has ever ever had. I will miss her greatly because she is also one of us. She is a caring person and she truly truly cares about everyone. She will forever be one of my most favorite dancers that was ever produced. These pictures say it all for me. Please TPTB, find a way to her include her on this show.
And so the Ballroom With A Twist fun continues…this time with Sharna Burgess and Val Chmerkovksiy and the cast and crew in Lancaster, PA. You can view some pictures and videos at FOX43. Also, below is some coverage and interviews with ABC27…
Lastly, here are some instagrams from Sharna and Val. *choose something to be passionate about* indeed!
