DWTS Nancy Kerrigan On How Dancing Is So Much Different Than Skating

Nancy Kerrigan wrote about her first dance and what the experience was like getting ready for Dancing With The Stars. It was a busy day to say the least, but, she was happy with the results. More below from Team USA

I was surprisingly calm before the show. I had my family and some friends in the audience and was able to talk to them before the show. But the nerves kicked in right as the show was about to begin.

The show opening was simple enough for me to learn and it was exciting to be part of the show. I had watched it a hundred times before so I knew what to expect, but it’s always a little different when there is a full house, the lights come on and it’s “go time.”

But as the show unfolded I realized I was having a ton of fun – so much so that I wanted to do my dance again. And not to get better scores. We got all 7s, which was good. I wanted to experience the whole atmosphere one more time. The live band, the lights, the crowd in close proximity – but mainly the feeling of the dance.

I have come to realize that dancing is so much different than skating. The moves of the Viennese Waltz are, in some cases, very opposite to skating. Even the turns go in a direction that is opposite to the way I normally spin.

So I was doing something really different and new. And it was a huge adrenaline rush to learn something so new and then perform it and have that performance appreciated.

We ended week one tied for third. Not bad. But regardless, it was a great experience.

Lots more at Team USA.

TMZ asked Sharna Burgess if there is a romance brewing with her Dancing With The Stars Bonner Bolton. Sharna also clears up the accident that happened last night (which she didn’t even need to do. Most of us could see it was just an accident). She’s so cute.

PureDWTS Season 24, Week 1 – Power Rankings

And so begins another season 🙂 Admittedly, I found it hard to psych myself up for this season – I wasn’t really looking forward to it, after the 3-ring manipulation circus of last season, and didn’t really feel super-invested in any of the couples until last night.  While the talent this season seems almost unfairly stacked in favor of the female celebs, unfortunately for them, I think the guys may have actually ended up more enjoyable and memorable – perhaps the female pros see the writing on the wall, and know they’ve gotta compensate for a lack of experience by having their partners be really, really entertaining?

Generally, aside from maybe 3-4 dances last night, this felt like a pretty tame premiere – the first hour was kind of a bear to get through, as the energy really slipped before picking up around the 9 PM hour. Other observations? The opening number was cool and not something we had really seen yet, but the preponderance of Maks & Val was eyeroll-inducing – they’re really trying to drive the point home that these two are the “stars” this season, huh? I feel like we only saw quick snippets of the female pros, with those two idiots mugging shamelessly in between. The sexism of this show is blood-boiling, at times. Glad to see that the judges were kinda stingy with the scores for the first night, as this tends to stem a lot of potential b*tching from couples down the line who are given cushy scores for weeks before the judges get real and drop the hammer. Getting really tired of them reminding us in one breath that Heather danced backup for Beyonce, while in another launching into this big apology tour about how “different” ballroom is from what Heather does. The cognitive dissonance…it hurts.

Just as a refresher for the regulars and a quick explanation for the newbs, the power rankings are a ranking of who I think is the least likely to get eliminated next week (#1) to who is the most likely (#12). It takes into account how well they danced, how memorable they were, how big I think their voting fanbase is going to be, how big their pro’s fanbase is, how likeable they are, etc. Is it NOT a ranking of how well they danced or how high they scored, so if you’re here to piously tell me that “so-and-so should be higher than so-and-so because they got a better score”, prepare to be called out. Shall we begin? 🙂 …Read more

Dancing With The Stars Sasha Farber And Emma Slater Push Back Wedding

Sasha Farber and Emma Slater are so busy and there are other weddings taking place this summer, so, they’ve decided to push back their wedding. From People….

“We were thinking August, right? But it’s kind of wedding season. A lot of people getting married over this summer,” said Slater, whose DWTS costars Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy as well as judge Julianne Hough are all currently planning weddings. “Selfishly, I think I kind of want to stand out a little bit. So now I’m thinking maybe next year.”

But Slater swears she’s not a “bridezilla.”

“I kind of just want a fairy god mother to wave her wand and for me to turn up and have a great party and then get married and then kind of be done with it. Is that just anti-romantic?” she said.

I don’t think that idea is “anti-romantic” at all (when these two are one of the most romantic couples anyway). More in full at People.

“Oh gosh,” she told reporters. “I am a professional. Look, we have a lot of chemistry and we have a lot of fun, but first and foremost we are trying to do a really great job in this competition. I want Bonner to be around until the end and I want to take this man to the finale. That is our priority. Everyone is making a lot of our really obvious chemistry.”

“I’ll be the first to say that she is as 100 percent a professional as she is beautiful,” echoed Bonner, who previously told PEOPLE it was adoration at first sight for him. “She’s a great teacher. She’s pushing me hard I’m working hard. I just want to make her proud.”
