Not only did Gleb Savchenko and Sharna Burgess magnify the Cheyenne, Wyoming audience in “Ballroom With A Twist”, Chelsie Hightower and Val Chmerkovksiy did the same in Greeley and Colorado Springs, Colorado. One of our readers, Teresa, sent us this fun review on the night in Colorado Springs at the Air Force Academy.
I got to go on Jan 31 to see Ballroom With a Twist. It was an amazing show and I was even invited onstage along with some others to dance with the dancers. I was able to dance a little with Val Chmerkovskiy (a favourite of mine on DWTS) and he gave me a high five for coming on the stage! Other highlights from the show included their question and answer session during the show, and yes I asked a question to Val. I asked if he would ever release a CD since he plays violin, raps, and dances, and he said “when the time is right, yes but the time has to be right first.” Both Val and Chelsie were a blast as were the other dancers, and the two singers from American Idol. The show was packed with amazing choreography and everyone was friendly. The two male dancers from SYTYCD even came down and gave the front two rows high fives after the show! And, since the show was a the Air Force Academy, they both danced with some of the Air Force cadets at one point in the show.
Also, Val Chmerkovksiy and Peta Murgatroyd did a special “Ballroom With A Twist” show in San Francisco for Jewish Family and Children’s Services. The Gala used the event as a fundraiser that honored local émigrés from the Former Soviet Union. Below is a picture courtesy of @dhernandezmusic of Peta and Val at the event. Beautiful!! If anyone knows of more pictures, let us know in comments.
