Dancing with the Stars Season 22 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. 🙂

I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?

Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. 🙂 There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual Read more..

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. :-)

DWTS Karina Smirnoff, Sasha Farber, Anna Trebunskaya, And More To Dance In “Agent Carter” Season 2

Stay tuned for Episode 8 of “Agent Carter”. Entertainment Weekly is reporting Louis Van Amstel has choreographed a dance that will be featured. Not only that, several pros from Dancing With The Stars and other dancers will be performing. Read on for details. I don’t watch this show, but, I may have to watch this episode.

Here’s the deal: “Episode 8 ends with a cliffhanger where Peggy and Jarvis [James D’Arcy] get in big trouble and are knocked out,” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW. “Episode 9 begins with a dream sequence that starts in black and white — by the way, [Atwell] was made for black and white. She looks like Rita Hayworth. She looks spectacular.”

Then, in true Wizard of Oz fashion, everything goes into color, leading into a full-on Broadway musical dance number that features an original song from lyricist David Zippel and composer Christopher Lennertz, in conjuction with executive producers Tara Butters and Fazekas.

Choreographed by Dancing with the Stars’ Louis van Amstel, the sequence features a number of pros from DWTS, including van Amstel, Dmitry Chaplin, Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya, Sasha Farber and Damian Whitewood. Dancers Robert Roldan, Malene Ostergaard, Amanda Balen, Serge Onik, Jenya Shatilova, Lacey Escabar, Alla Kocherga and Paul Kirkland also join them.

See “Forever Tango” With Dancing With The Stars Anna Trebunskaya And Dmitry Chaplin

Hey All! If you live in the California area (or even if you don’t), be sure to see “Forever Tango” in San Francisco at the newly remodeled Herbst Theatre. You can see the show from December 20, 2015 to January 10, 2016 on specific dates. Dancing With The Stars Anna Trebunskaya and Dimitry Chaplin are the leads. Below is more information from Broadway World. There is also a show at the American Bank Center Selena Auditorium in Corpus Christi, TX on November 7th. For more information on this show follow Dmitry Dream Team Facebook for all the latest.

Luis Bravo’s FOREVER TANGO, the internationally celebrated entertainment event that has been seen throughout Europe, North America, South America, Asia, and Australia, will beguile and ignite San Francisco audiences at San Francisco’s newly remodeled Herbst Theatre for a strictly limited three-week engagement – December 20, 2015 – January 10, 2016. Starring Anna Trebunskaya and Dimitry Chaplin of “Dancing with the Stars” – and featuring vocals by Marcela Rios – FOREVER TANGO features 12 world-class tango dancers and an on-stage 11-piece orchestra anchored by the bandoneón – the accordion-like instrument that is the mainstay of tango music – in an evening that celebrates the passionate music and dance of Argentina.

Tickets for FOREVER TANGO range in price from $25 – $85. VIP tickets are available for $125 and include a meet-and-greet with Trebunskaya and Chaplin (90 minutes prior to performance), preferred seating and a FOREVER TANGO CD. All tickets can be purchased now online at cityboxoffice.com , by phone at (415) 392-4400 or in person at the City Box Office [180 Redwood St. Ste. 100].

“San Francisco has one of the most vibrant and active tango scenes outside of Buenos Aires,” says Luis Bravo, creator and director of FOREVER TANGO. “Ever since our first engagement in 1994, FOREVER TANGO has captured the hearts and passion of the San Francisco Bay Area. We look forward to our return engagement this December!”

Sensuous and sophisticated, the tango inhabits a world where everything can be said with the flick of a leg, the tug of a hand, the tap of a foot and the arch of an eyebrow. Hailed as “a must-see!” by the New York Times, FOREVER TANGO was voted “Best Touring Musical” by Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle in San Francisco where it played an unprecedented 92 weeks at the Theatre on the Square and has returned season after season. Truly an international event, FOREVER TANGO was also awarded the coveted Simpatia Prize at the 1996 Spoleto Festival in Italy. FOREVER TANGO opened on Broadway in June of 1997 for what was expected to be an eight-week engagement, ran for 14 months and has since performed on Broadway on three separate occasions.
