Dancing With The Stars Live Tour Review From The Wall Street Journal, Fun Video By Sasha Farber, And Other News

The Wall Street Journal reviewed the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. They saw the show this past Sunday.

Speaking of music, the audience was treated to the musical stylings of some of the pros, including Ballas on guitar with Dylan Chambers and Chmerkovskiy on violin. Carson had her own cute musical moment involving an instrument nearly the size of her entire body.

Ribeiro and Carson said audience participation would be a component of the tour, and Sunday didn’t disappoint. Chmerkovskiy made the life of the preteen girl behind us by dancing with her in the aisle, and Johnson coached some husbands and sons in the art of dance. On stage. With props. (At the other Red Bank show, Chmerkovskiy danced with the father of Season 19 runner-up Sadie Robertson. What will NYC bring?)

With the elimination of Tuesday’s results show, we lose the opportunity to see the pros dance together except in giant group numbers or 15-second bumpers around commercial breaks. The tour gives audience members the chance to see the pros in different pairings, with the most-common ones being Ballas/Carson, Chmerkovskiy/Slater and Motsepe/Johnson. (This would seem to be for height reasons.)

After several seasons with conservative partners such as Robertson and Candace Cameron Bure, Ballas let loose in a funky, steamy love triangle with Carson and Chmerkovskiy set to Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t” just after intermission. And producers, can we PLEASE get Slater a young, decent dancer as a partner for Season 20? She had chemistry aplenty with Chmerkovskiy in a samba, Farber in a jive and Motsepe in a contemporary-like rumba (the latter accompanied by Ballas and Chambers with an acoustic version of the Cure’s “Love Song”).

Some things you can’t appreciate as well on TV include the muscle definition, especially in the ladies’ legs; the circular fans pointed up on stage to make the women’s hair blow around sexily when they’re performing (Ribeiro had an entertaining moment or two in front of one of them); and famous people in the audience — we were across the aisle from former Chmerkovskiy partner Sherri Shepherd.

Chmerkovskiy, who is Ukrainian-born but grew up in Brooklyn and currently lives in New Jersey, said this segment of the tour was like coming home. He told the audience that while people in Los Angeles can’t ever place his accent because they know he’s from another country, they can’t figure out the Jersey piece. “I’m Russian, but we all sound Italian – how you doin’?”

After Sunday’s entertainment, we’re doin’ just fine.

More at the Wall Street Journal .

In other tour news, it appears Janel Parrish will not be doing the tour after all.

And finally, how about a new video below by Sasha Farber? This is so fun…

Dancing Pros Live “National tour truly highlights the “stars” – Review, Photos

The Souix City Journal is good about reviewing dance shows when they come to town and this is no different for “Dancing Pros Live“!! Read on for a little take from the link. You know where to go for more. Photos below courtesy of Karina and Edyta’s instagrams. Beautiful!

But this national tour truly highlights the “stars” – those incredibly talented professional dancers who show off their own style and athleticism in this live dancing competition.

The show was hosted by “DWTS” veteran Edyta Sliwinska and Alan Thicke, star of the television show “Growing Pains,” and — for you younger readers – the father of singer Robin Thicke.

Professional dancers from “DWTS,” “So You Think You Can Dance” and dance champions from around the world competed with one another in a variety of dance styles, including cha-cha, waltz, tango, swing and jitterbug, to name a few.

The evening was a mix of breathtaking dance, fun backstage stories and some impressive vocals from Holly Tucker, a finalist on “The Voice.”

Although the outcome is determined by the folks in the seats, three judges provided insights. “DWTS” pro Karina Smirnoff and choreographer Oscar Orosco were the national touring judges. Each competition also invites a local judge to assist, and that honor went to KTIV-TV news anchor Matt Breen.

New Dancing With The Stars Live Tour Interviews With Keo Motsepe And Val Chmerkovskiy

Awww, this is such a great interview with That’s Your Reality and pro Keo Motsepe! I wish we heard more from him. What a big and gentle heart he has and so humble and thankful to be dancing. I love what he said about Emma and what happened after their Rumba on tour…

Also, Cleveland.com interviewed Val Chmerkovskiy. In the take below, Val talks of the differences between dancing live on the show versus the when he dances on tour. Be sure to read the link for the full interview.

“The live show is awesome. It’s very interactive for both us and fans of the show, who can see us live and get more of a sense about who we are and even ask questions. . . . So many times, a fan will come up to me and say, ‘You inspired me to get up and dance and do something with my life.’ ”

As an artist, Chmerkovskiy says the live format is inspiring to him, too.

“When we do the TV show it’s live, but there are times you have to be thinking about the camera, and to be honest, that’s not when I am my best. That’s why this tour is such a blessing. You get to be onstage and have this immediate interaction with the audience. The more energy they give ne, I give them back. You don’t get that reaction with a camera.

“For me, I feel like a superhero onstage. These are the people who made the show No. 1 in the world and gave me a platform, and I can’t wait to give them the best they’ve ever seen from me.”

That includes the shirt off his back.

“On a lighter note,” Chmerkovskiy adds with a laugh, “I take off my shirt during the show. A lot.”
