Mark Ballas has written a new blog at Hollywood Life. Isn’t this cool for how they rehearsed for the Apple move?
What really made the routine fun for me was doing the passing of the apple. The fact that we incorporated the apple into the whole dance, without it being attached to anything was super cool and added a danger element, in case anyone dropped it. During rehearsals, we played a game using a softball to get used to a prop. Throughout rehearsals, we would pass the ball to each other without telling the other, and you HAD to catch it! (It also had to be a good throw!) If you dropped the ball, you would have to drop and do 20 pushups and plank for 10 seconds. In five days of playing the game, I only dropped it three times and Sadie dropped it four times. So I ended up winning the game, but that’s how we trained ourselves to be aware of the apple. When we got to the set on Sunday we changed from the softball to the apple, which was a bit more challenging because the apple isn’t as round, but we did a great job adjusting!
Lots more at Hollywood Life including photos backstage of them and BC jean.
Also, be sure you visit E Online as Sadie is asking fans to vote on her “America’s Choice” costume for week 9 of Dancing With The Stars. The poll is open until 2:00pm PT today. So, be sure to get your vote in.
Set to dance the jive with professional partner Mark Ballas, Sadie will either rock Option 1, which is a one shoulder dress, or Option 2, which is a sweetheart neckline. The choice is up to you!
You have until tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 5) at 2 p.m. PT to vote for which dress is best! So what are you waiting for? Get to voting now!
Oh, this is hard. I love them both, but I think I’m going with #1!! Let us know which one you choose.
