Witney Carson Interviewed About The Dancing With The Stars Live Tour, DWTS, And More

I’m back and many many thanks to Angels, Miss Heidi and Lori, for having my back these last few days! My goodness. That flu bug is just awful and something I hope none of you experience. If you do, be sure to drink lots of fluids and get lots of rest.

So, onto some more news….
Utah fans are looking forward to Witney Carson returning home next week for the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. The Salt Lake Tribune has a great piece on it along with an interview. Below Witney talks on what it’s like to do Dancing With The Stars versus touring in the show.

“Really, just to be on the show was a huge thing for me,” Carson said. “I never thought in a million years that I would win it.”

Dancing with stars presents a challenge unlike any other for a professional dancer.

“It’s completely different because you have to not only worry about yourself, but you have to worry about a celebrity who has no idea of dance,” Carson said. “So you have to be able to teach them and teach them in the right way. And you have to be kind of like a mentor for them because they are so uncomfortable. They’re putting themselves out there and you have to kind of be their support system and get them through this long journey. There’s a lot of work that comes into it.”

The tour, which stops at the Maverik Center in West Valley City on Thursday, is also “completely different” from the TV show.

“It’s just all of us dancing together and not having, really, a lot of stress,” Carson said. “We don’t have to worry about a celebrity partner. It’s more just having a great time and just doing what we love and sharing it with everyone.”

And live like rock stars, right down to having their own “little bunks in our bus that we travel around on.”

A little less glamorous than you might think.

“Trust me, a lot of this career is not a lot of glamour,” Carson said. “People look at it like it’s so glamorous, but it’s a lot of hard work.”

DWTS Live Tour Video And Picture Collection, Information On Their Lighting Equipment

Yesterday, we told you a little about the “state of the art” light show in the Dancing Pros Live Tour. Well, if you head to Live Design Online, you can read a fun article on the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour and how lighting designer Butch Allen put it together so it would fit in one trailer.

When you have only one trailer for a high-profile tour, every fixture you load into it had better count. Butch Allen, the 2014 Parnelli Award Lighting Designer of the Year who has toured with a long list of superstars from Van Halen and Jennifer Lopez to Metallica and Usher, demonstrated this principle in stunning fashion recently when he created a maximum “bang for the inch” rig for the sold-out Dancing With The Stars Live! tour.

“We had to fit everything – and I mean everything — from costumes and props to the show’s famous mirror balls into a single trailer for this tour,” said Allen. “Ray Woodbury of RK Diversified Entertainment did an amazing job helping me put together a rig that delivered all the lighting punch we needed, while not taking up an inordinate amount of space in the trailer.”

The “workhorse” of this rig, according to Allen, was CHAUVET Professional’s Q-Wash 560Z-LED, a high-output moving head wash powered by 91 3-watt RGBWA LEDs. “We have a lot of great fixtures in the rig, but the Q-Wash is the light that stands out,” said Allen. “It’s the workhorse and the ‘lighting star’ on the Dancing With The Stars Live! tour hands down.”

There are a number of features that made the Q-Wash 560Z- LED an ideal fit for Allen’s Dancing With The Stars Live! rig. “The color rendering and optic zoom range on that light are awesome,” said the LD. “We’re using only 18 of these fixtures, yet we’re completely covering a 50 foot by 30 foot stage with just about every color imaginable. Plus since the fixtures are so light (21.2 lbs.), we have no difficulty hanging them from house pipe at different stops during the tour.”
