Artem Chigvinstev And Keo Motsepe Live Chat On DWTS And The New Tour (Is Rashad Jennings Touring?)

Check out this live chat below with Artem Chigvinstev and Keo Motsepe. It has all kinds of fun things included in it as well some teasers from camera blocking today and some other pros chiming in like Gleb Savchenko and Sasha Farber (they are too funny). Also, they tease on the new tour a little as well. Artem mentions that he can’t say which celebs are touring, but, a fan told us there was a mention on Rashad Jennings in another chat (before this one) and how Artem would be training with him on something. Hmmmm….could this be for the new tour? I don’t know, but, let’s hope so!! Thanks to Julia and @dwtsvalaur for the heads up.

Sasha Farber And Emma Slater Talk On The New DWTS Live “Hot Summer Nights” Tour

In a new ABC interview, Sasha Farber and Emma Slater talk on the new Dancing With The Stars Live “Hot Summer Nights” Tour and how it will be like a honeymoon. Below you can read how they feel on the performances coming and more. Yay to Sasha Farber going on tour this time too.

ETA: According to Broadway World, this is the pro line up for the new tour: Lindsay Arnold, Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvintsev, Sasha Farber, Keo Motsepe, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater, Alan Bersten, Hayley Erbert, and Britt Stewart, with more surprise casting to be announced*.

Pro dancers Sasha Farber and Emma Slater told ABC News that the show, “Dancing with the Stars: Live! – Hot Summer Nights,” will feature exciting new performances beginning June 16 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“Being on a TV show, you don’t see the fans as much as you really want to, and being on tour, the best part is the end of the show, is seeing the fans and getting to meet and say thank you and getting to explain to them that it’s because of them where we are today,” Farber said.

Farber and Slater got engaged during “DWTS” on Oct. 4, 2016. While the couple isn’t rushing their nuptials, both agreed that they’re happy to go on tour together.

“It’s going to kind of be a honeymoon … that’s why we like going on tour to get to go on different places, go to different coffee shops meet different people — it’s going to be really fun,” Farber said.

“It’s not actually our honeymoon,” Emma chimed in, laughing. “He says he going to take me to Italy,”

Farber and Slater said they will arrive in Atlantic City a few days before their first show. From there, they’ll hop on a tour bus with the rest of their fellow dancers, they said.

I love them. More at ABC. For tickets, see this link.

Lindsay Arnold Chats On Dancing With The Stars, The New Tour, And Lots More

If you go to New York Up State, you can read a cool new interview with Lindsay Arnold. She talks on Dancing With The Stars, a partner she’d love to have, the new tour, and lots more.

“As a dancer, you’re acting all the time. I consider acting something I would love to do. A musical would be a great place to dance, act and sing. Right now my main focus is ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ but I’m only 22 and I really want to see what else I can do,” Arnold said.

“I’ve always been interested in trying something new. I’m always inspired by celebrities who come on the show and step out of their comfort zone and do really well.”

But a musical might not be that far out of her comfort zone, as she sees “Dancing with the Stars” as being just as much about acting as it is technical steps and performance. The ability to successfully convey emotion while dancing is part of why every season sees rumors about stars sparking up romantic relationships with their partners, she said.

“It totally makes sense to me that people will see connections with partners because that’s what we want. If we have a sexy dance, we want people to believe that the feelings are real,” Arnold said. “Sometimes it’s just rumors, and sometimes it is real because when you’re dancing, there’s chemistry, there’s sexual tension when you’re performing- it doesn’t mean it’s real, but that’s what we have to portray, that’s what we do…”

“Honestly, there have been so many rumors that are true and so many that are so far off, that I think that’s what makes the show exciting. People at home are being taken on this journey and it’s a very, very real journey. And sometimes people see it more real than it actually is.”

But sometimes the journey is real for the contestants, too.

“We’ve seen some couples like [‘Shark Tank’ star] Robert Herjavec and Kym [Johnson] – they just recently got married – they were partners on the show and now they’re happily married. The show is not just about teaching people how to dance, but changing their lives. It definitely changed Robert and Kym’s life.”

Arnold has not been part of that rumor mill, though, as she married her high school sweetheart Samuel Cusick in 2015. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t fantasize about who her next celebrity partner could be.

“I’ve always, always been in love with Channing Tatum. And he actually has a dance background so I think that he’d be an amazing partner and super fun to work with,” she said. “I might have too high hopes for that one, but I’ll never stop dreaming, ha ha.”

She’s so cute. More at

New Sharna Burgess DWTS Live Tour Interview, Will She’ll Be Back Next Season?

Broadway World talked with Sharna Burgess about the new Dancing With The Stars tour. They ask her about the best part of taking the show on the road and the dances included in it. They also ask her on Danving With The Stars and if she’ll be back next season. Read below. Is this a confirm? Also, don’t miss a bunch a beautiful new photos of the tour by photographer David Wiza at this link. They are stunning!

3. What’s the best part of taking this show on the road — and what’s the most challenging part for you?

SB: The best part is being able to meet some of our incredible fans face to face, hear how much they love the show and how much it means to them. We have the most amazing and dedicated fans and seeing the smiles on their faces while we perform live is just so fulfilling! The most challenging part is being away from my life for 3 months. I have 2 dogs, my home, other projects that need my attention and being on the road makes it hard to be there for those things.

4. How will you spend the “off season” … and will you be back for the next season of the TV series?

SB: Well, my entire off-season will be rehearsing for the tour or actually being on tour. But I’m hoping to find a couple days of downtime before next season starts.
