Edyta Sliwinska Interviewed About “Dancing Pros Live”, Touring, And More

What a fun and interesting new interview with Dancing With The Stars Edyta Sliwinska and Roanoke.com. She talks of her favorite dances in her and Alec Mazo’s “Dancing Pros Live” show, the most difficult part of the tour, and what’s next for her and Alec when the tour ends at the of April (TPTB, if you read this, please ask them back for a performance for the Anniversary show!). You can read more below and at the link. For tickets and scheduling information for “Dancing Pros Live”, see this link. I promise….you won’t be sorry you missed it.

Q: What dances can we see on the show?

A little bit of everything. You’ll see ballroom, contemporary, swing, jitterbug, Charleston, African samba …

Q: What is the most difficult part of the tour?

Probably the traveling and staying in hotels. I’m traveling with a baby, too, and it’s just so exhausting. But you just keep going on because you want to bring the best show to the audience that you can possibly put on.

Q: Your husband has won a season of “Dancing with the Stars” and you’ve come in second — is there friendly competition there?

At the beginning there was. As ballroom dancers, you’re already pretty competitive — that’s why you get into ballroom dancing in the first place. But I would have to say that it’s healthy competition. One partner might be very good at choreography and the other could be very good at coming up with concepts, so they’re able to join forces and create something amazing because of that. Alec is very good at logistics whereas I’m very good with artistic vision. You balance each other out and encourage one another.

Q: What’s up next for you after the tour?

Alec and I will be producing a show for a casino in Canada. It’s a singing competition show with audience voting just like “Dancing Pros Live.” There will be very little dancing. There will be some to accompany duets or group numbers. But we’ll have singers from “The Voice,” “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent.”

Q: What advice do you have for aspiring dancers?

If you really love it and you continue to really love it, then work hard and stick to it. Get out there and show your talent. Don’t limit yourself to one style of dancing. You can specialize in one type of dance but you should know all types of dances. Take all the classes you can. Don’t be afraid to branch out into acting and singing or other forms of talent.

DANCING PROS LIVE Report and Review:: “You will be touched, you will smile, you will laugh….and you will also “Oooo” and “Awwww”

Wow, what a week it’s been….and a magical one at that! I was so blessed to see “Dancing Pro Live” in Cheyenne, Wyoming and then in Denver, Colorado. I am so glad I saw both shows because each had different dances and mixed things up. That’s why I think it always pays to go more than once to a dance show if you can because you never know what’s going to happen and such is true for Dancing Pros Live.

I was struck immediately with the fabulous “state of the art” light show. It set the tone for the whole show for what was to come…..a show of professionalism, high entertainment, royalty, and class. Also, with the additional times of the stage smoking and steaming combined with the lights, it made one feel as if time had stood still. It made you feel as if you were in a dream.

I can’t rave enough about all the dancers and cast. They were carefully selected with a fun mix of personalities. For instance:

-Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo couldn’t have been more elegant, flawless, powerful, gorgeous, sexy, classy, and romantic as everything they are known for. Edyta is a Princess and she is as limber as the day when she was on Dancing With The Stars. They took my breath away and left me spellbound like always. True Dancing With The Stars Legends!

-Benji Schwimmer and Torri Smith’s choreography couldn’t have been more entertaining, dynamic, clever, show stopping, and fun for all of their numbers. Benji beats to a different drummer. He’s phenomenal. So much so, I would love to see him be a Pro on Dancing With The Stars now.

-Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Demidov had wistful, beautiful and athletic routines. Their extension and lines were so beautiful. Every time Chelsie came on stage, she would light it up just like on Dancing With The Stars. She was like a “ray of light”. Read more..
