Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

DWTS Season 19: Who Are Pro Dancers Keoikantse Motsepe And Allison Holker?

Most of you might know Allison Holker. She is most famous for her work on “So You Think You Can Dance”. She was a dance contestant in Season 2 and an all-star in Seasons 7 through 11. She started her dance training at only 4 years of age at “The Dance Club” studio in Orem, Utah (the same city where Derek began his dance and ballroom training). She began teaching at the same studio when she was 16. In other accomplishments, she’s performed with Earth, Wind, and Fire at the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2002 Olympic Games in 2002. She also starred in ‘High School Musical’ and ‘High School Musical 2′. Last year, she was nominated for “Outstanding Choreography” in the 2013 Emmy Awards (Heidi’s Note: She was nominated WITH Derek). You might remember the dances below when she danced on Dancing With The Stars in the past and the 2013 Emmy Awards last year. More on Allison at Wikipedia.

As for Keoikantse Motsepe, he was an undefeated South African Latin American Champion in every age category for 8 years. His formal dance training includes Latin American, Ballroom, and Contemporary. He has also performed on South African Idol and in the highly acclaimed dance show “Burn The Floor”. You can read more on Keoikantse at Afridiziak. Videos below.

Ricki Lake, Jennifer Grey, Allison Holker, And More Attend DWTS Anna Trebunskaya’s Baby Shower

It’s official. Dancing With The Stars Anna Trebunskaya is going to have a baby GIRL!! She talked all about it with Life & Style Magazine at a recent baby shower. Below is more including who else attended the baby shower. Be sure to see some new pics of Anna at the link. She looks happy and gorgeous as ever!!

“I’m just so excited to meet her,” Anna gushed to Life & Style at her baby shower on Dec. 14.

“I want to see how she looks! The eye color, hair color and structure, I just don’t know how all the DNA’s going to mix together. I just want to hold her!”

Ricki Lake, Jennifer Grey, Samantha Harris and So You Think You Can Dance’s Allison Holker were all in attendance at the shower and found out about the baby’s gender in a sweet way.

The mom-to-be sliced a specially made cake by Sweet E’s bakery to reveal pink filling inside.

Anna, a DWTS veteran, thinks she might have a little dancer on the way. “This little one loves jive!” she shared with the mag. “Whenever’s there’s jive, there’s always some kind of movement.”

Even though she’s more than seven months along, she’s still undecided on a name.

“We have about five saved on our phones,” shares the beauty, who has yet to reveal the father.

ADDING: Kristin and Suri of Afterbuzz TV were there too…

Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss Dance The Night Away After Getting Married

A huge congratulations to SYTYCD’s and periodic Dancing With The Stars performers Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss! The two dance stars were married this week in at Nigel Lythgoe’s Villa San-Juliette Vineyard & Winery in Paso Robles, California. I can’t imagine what the dance floor must have been like afterwards, but, below is a hint from Allison’s instagram and some quotes from ET Online and Life & Style magazine. From all of us at PureDWTS, we wish them much much happiness and to dance forever!!

For their first dance as husband and wife, Boss and Holker boogied to Adele’s One & Only on an amber LED illuminated dance floor — which was a surprise from their managers, Nelson Diaz & Tony DiStefano of A-Team Entertainment/DMG — provided by Barker Décor Service.

…and performed a hip-hop routine to Justin Bieber’s “Somebody to Love” with Allison’s 5-year-old daughter, Weslie, who choreographed the number!

Dancing With The Stars Cast Supports Derek Hough At The 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards (Photos, etc)

DerekHoughEmmyAwards

As previously reported, Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough won an Emmy last night for “Best Choreography”. Right before the Choreography Award was given out, he helped to choreograph and danced in a big “Luck Be A Lady/Get Lucky” production number right before it. Above you can see him pictured with Allison Holker. If you missed it, Pure Derek Hough has a video posted of it. It was spectacular to say the least and made the other performances of the night look mild in comparison.

Also, some of the other cast members of Dancing With The Stars were seen walking the Red Carpet and in the audience supporting Derek. Below you can see photos of Brooke Burke-Charvet and Carrie Ann Inaba. What do you think of these dresses?

Bruno Tonioli was also seen. He even had tears in his eyes when they announced Derek had won. So cute!

Reactions

Derek’s friend and former Dancing With The Stars partner Maria Menounos graced the red carpet. Before the show began she was tweeting her support for Derek. I just had to post this picture being I think Maria was the best Dressed Woman of the night!!
