The summer dance tours are heating up! Derek and Julianne Hough’s MOVE Live On Tour is about to begin. Also, “Ballroom With A Twist” is gearing up for it’s summer run as well. Scott Stander, the producer of “Ballroom With A Twist“, tells us the show “is going great guns!” He also tells us they have a “very exciting schedule this year and some shows are already SOLD OUT”! He also informs us of all the pro dancers from Dancing With The Stars for who will be performing. They include Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya, Sharna Burgess, and Cheryl Burke! He also tells us Maks and Val will be hosting some shows as well as performing. Here is more from Scott…
BALLROOM WITH A TWIST is going great guns!… We have a Very Exciting Schedule this year and some shows are already SOLD OUT!
Summer 2014 will be our Starriest Tour- and we think the fans will be psyched to see their favorite Celebrity dancers up close and personal. Maks & Val will perform together! Hosting and performing on stage in one show! This dream has been a year in the making so I’m really looking forward to seeing that chemistry hit the stage. And the icing on the cake is bringing this show and the Big Stars to Hawaii for the first time. I don’t think Waikiki will ever be the same.
