Willow Shields Writes On Mark Ballas And Storytelling In New DWTS Blog

I love Willow Shields and this new blog from Access Hollywood makes me love her even more for how she dedicated it to Mark Ballas and her love for storytelling.

But when Bruno mentioned expressing through dance as I would with words, I was instantly excited! Stories and more stories! I have spent my life loving them. From those early years reading with my family, to finally being able to do it on my own, first with little chapter books and then eventually my Harry Potter years (which, let’s face it, have never ended), stories have been huge for me. Then one day, when I was 10, I was cast as Prim in “The Hunger Games” series. How often are you able to become a PART of a story you love so much? To bring those words to life.

Which brings me to another great storyteller: Mark Ballas.

As a partner he is supportive and patient, but tough on me. He works very hard and expects me to do the same. But as a storyteller on “Dancing with the Stars,” there is no one better.

When we are given a new dance each week, he is immediately engaged in the choreography, the music and the costumes. But, he uses all these things to tell such amazing stories! You can’t help but want to be a part in sharing them with the “Dancing with the Stars” viewers.

So whether it is in a book, a piece of art, or in a dance, stories are everywhere. I’m just very grateful to get to be a part of some of them.

DWTS Season 20, Week 5 – Dancing by the Numbers

Ah where to start this week? Well, I could rant about the judges (or was it just CAI) being total nut jobs in their scoring – towards Nastia and Robert, in particular – but I feel like I’m preaching to the choir and I got it out of my system earlier in the week. Besides, it very likely doesn’t matter that CAI is a complete ass, because I don’t think anyone is touching Nastia, Riker, or Rumer. And probably not Willow either. Although you never know…

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTSRussia Semi-Finals With Gleb Savchenko, Adelina Sotnikova, Elena Samodanova – Special Preview, Photos, Video

Are you ready for the Dancing With The Stars Russia Semi-finals? For starters, Anastassija (@NastineLi at twitter) was so gracious and wrote us a fun preview for what the show is about this week so we’d understand it better. It reads as follows….

Anastassija: The 10th show of DWTS RUSSIA will be dedicated to the most popular and successful singer of Soviet Union and Russia of all times, Alla Pugachjova. She had her birthday on April, 15 (she turned 66) so they decided to make such a present to her. Each pair takes their favourite song by A.Pugachjova and performs a dance. She has a very rich repertoir, so it’s very difficult to guess the choices.

To make it a bit more clear, she is somewhat like Madonna or Michael Jackson for Russians. Actually when she was young, she was really a mega-star and an absolute idol for several generations of soviet people. Now she almost doesn’t perform, but she is extremely respected and a very influential person in the world of show business in Russia. She is a welcome guest on many shows, she used to be a judge on a very famous russian-produced international talent festival New Wave, she also produced her own talent show(smth like Star Academy) “Factor A”. So she still stays very active ;)) and i won’t be surprised if tomorrow she is one of the judges ;))

An interesting fact – she is wife of the host of the show, Maxim Galkin. They have a big age difference, but they are happily married and have little twins. Though, A.Pugachjova has a grown up daughter, who is also a popular singer in Russia, and two grandsons, one of whom also tries to be a professional musician. You can read really much about her here. And here you can listen to a collection of her really greatest hits and most popular songs of all her career ;))

Back to Vogue: So, this week Gleb Savchenko is dancing in a men’s group dance. Anastassija tells us they will be dancing to a song called “Kings Can Do Anything”.

GlebSavchenkoDWTSRussiaSemiFinals

Anastassija translated the lyrics for us below and what they mean to set up this dance before we see it….

1.Once upon a time there lived a king
He rules his country and his people as he only could
And his name was Louis the Second.
But the song is not about him but about love.
At those times there lived a beauty
She … the shepherd geese at the walls of the palace,
But for Louis she was the prettiest of all
And he decided to marry her
Chorus:
Kings can do anything, kings can do anything,
They even decide the destiny of the whole world,
But no matter what you say
No king can marry for love
2.”I will marry, I will marry, I will marry”, said Louis.
And all his neighbours kings immediately arrived to him,
And there was a huge scandal, a really huge scandal.
But the song is not about that but about love.
And finally he married another woman.
She had only kings in her pedigree.
But if you saw the portrait of that princess,
You would never envy Louis
Chorus.
