World Of Dance Goodies,Tap Dancing Champion Kyle Van Newkirk Gives Advice To Young Dancers, And More

Hey! How many of you have been following “World Of Dance” this summer? Miss Heidi, Courtney, and I have been covering the show at PureWofD.com if you haven’t checked it out yet. You can catch up with all the news, music, and watch videos of all the dances so far (a few of them you can watch below). Miss Heidi has been working her Number Predictions and Courtney does up the Power Rankings every week just like when we cover Dancing With The Stars. Also, we just interviewed Tap Dancing Champion and sensation Kyle Van New Kirk who is from my area. He talks on his career so far and tells us all about his performances (I love his story on how he made a cane for the Duel round as he broke it multiple times before the live performance and had to keep remaking it). He tells us some things behind the scenes and gives advice to young dancers coming from remote areas, and lots more. Be sure to see it HERE when you get some time. It’s very near and dear to my heart as I spent time with his Mom and him at their lovely house and gardens and took photos. He played the piano for me. It was a surreal day to say the least (what I’d give to see him perform on DWTS!). Come check everything out! We’re having a lot of fun and he talent is off the hook.

Lots Of Thoughts And Prayers For Former Dancing With The Stars Contestant Maria Menounos

Keep your thoughts and prayers with former Dancing With The Stars contestant Maria Menounos. She has stepped down as co-anchor of E! News in the wake of surgery to remove a brain tumor. Maria’s surgeon was able to remove almost 100% of the tumor, which was benign, during a complicated seven-hour surgery, but, there is a six to seven percent chance that it could come back. Maria’s mom also has stage 4 cancer. Below is more from NBC26 via People and E News.

“Our thoughts and support go out to Maria and her family and we wish them all the best knowing that Maria will tackle this with the same fierce dedication she is known for,” Adam Stotsky, president of E! Entertainment, said in a statement. “We are grateful for Maria’s many contributions to E! over the past three years.”

“I just want to be still for a bit and see what I’m supposed to be in this world,” Menounos said. “For me, sharing this story is important on so many levels.”

The diagnosis came after Menounos began feeling lightheaded on set and suffering from headaches and slurred speech in February.

It also came at a time when the TV personality, who also hosts a Sirius XM radio and has appeared on “Dancing with the Stars,” was grappling with another family medical issue: Her mother has stage 4 brain cancer.

Menounos said she views it all as a “blessing” that has brought her family closer.

It’s also made her re-evaluate her life and health, she said.

“We’re caretakers as women and we put ourselves last,” she told People. “I tell people all the time if your car is making a weird noise, you take it to the mechanic. How come when our body is making weird noises, we ignore it? I’m so lucky that I went to the doctor and raised the alarm.”

Prays hard for this family! For more In detail, see NBC26. Thaks to Lori for the heads up.

Dancing With The Stars Hot Summer Nights Tour – Blog And Photos By Cindy

She included photos from the Meet & Greet as well in the mix. Cindy also sent us her thoughts on the show and her experience which you can read below. I love how she was able to meet Ruby The Creature (Emma and Sasha’s puppie). So cute. THANKS, Cindy! If any of you have a some tour goodies to share, write to our Contact Us link. We’d love to feature whatever you’ve got.

Dancing With The Stars “Hot Summer Nights” Tour
By Cindy

I have been going to the DWTS tour shows since the 1st one which was right after Julianne and Apolo’s win. They are a lot better today. This tour was the first time I was able to see all the pros for photos and even met Ruby she’s tiny. I had a VIP and there were only 7 total, so, there wasn’t any green screen photos, but, they took group photos instead. I thought the VIP was more organized and was run by Sam (Lindsay’s husband) which I didn’t realize. I knew he looked familiar, but, wasn’t expecting that. I had Emma, Lindsay, Gleb and Rashad for the photo. I’m glad I had Emma and Lindsay because I never had them at my m&g for a professional photo. Rashad is very nice and you can’t help to smile and be in a good mood which reminds me of Emma. For my mingle, I had Alan and Britt. I never met Britt before. She is nice.

Now for the show: After being seated it felt a little funny since Val wasn’t there, but, once the show started the pros did an amazing job. I’m not good at naming the dances in order, but, my favorite dances were from Emma and Sasha, Sharna and Gleb (the blindfold dance), and Emma and Rashad. My favorite group dance was the summer dance. Sasha was in his crab outfit. I think this tour was more fun than the others because of the dances and Rashad. The star pro for me was Emma followed by Sasha, Sharna, Gleb and Lindsay. After the show I went to the buses hoping to see Sharna and Haley because they were the only ones I didn’t get to see. Everyone went down the line taking photos as long as everyone remained on the sidewalk. I had the best time. The only thing that went wrong was my camera card filled up right after intermission and I had to change the card.
