A Dancing With The Stars Tour Hershey, PA Review By Lois And Kathy – “A Ten Perfect 10 Review”

Lois: My friend, Kathy L Erdman, and I call each other our “Dancing Twin”. We can finish each other’s sentences about the show. We can echo each other to a “Dancing T”! Our thoughts are blended as one! We both have watched every season, every show! We love the show so much and call it The Best Entertainment Show On The Planet!

When the opportunity came to go to the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour we jumped at the chance! We were so fortunate that we live only an hour away from Hershey PA, as the slogan goes, “The Sweetest Place on Earth”. The scents of Hershey’s Chocolate waft through the town. You simply cannot go to Hershey without having your fill of the sweetest treat in Pennsylvania!

Our excitement crescendoed as the time drew near! We pulled into the parking lot and had to pinch ourselves saying, “We are actually here!”

Seeing dancers up close is a whole other perspective than seeing them on television. Being able to see their movements is much clearer in person. For example, the lifts seem even more effortless. We can see the fluidity of their movements so much better. We were close enough to see them full-on. Their faces were beautifully clear.

Each pro got to speak during the show. They went out into the audience for that personal feel. Sasha crossed over a row of seats behind us and we got to see him very up close! Emma went with him into the audience. Two lucky ladies asked if Val would dance with them. He sprinted to their section and gave them a thrill! The guys went into the audience handing out a red rose to a lucky gal.

I would give this show a “Ten Perfect 10 Review”! I feel honored and privileged to have been able to witness “The Traveling Ballroom”! As Kathy says below, I also felt like I was in the ballroom. Perhaps the closest I will ever get to the real thing.

We cheered loudly during the show! Our “dancing hearts” were warmed by being in the presence of the astounding dancers! The variety of dances was perfect!

A Ten Perfect 10 Review!

Kathy did a wonderful review. I wanted to share it with you. Here it is…. Read more..

Dancing With The Stars Live Tour Interview With Peta Murgatroyd And Witney Carson, Another Press Review

Just a few media items for the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. First, Peta Murgatroyd and Witney Carson talked with Richmond.com about the new tour and Dancing With The Stars. Here is a take with Peta below. More at the link with Witney.

Fans of the show will get to see a variety of new dances during the tour — some choreographed by the show’s professional dancers and others by choreographer Mandy Moore.

Professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd hopes the experience of touring will bring the dancers even closer together. “I am thinking the touring side is where you get to do your bonding,” she said, speaking from Los Angeles and joking about the “tight quarters” on the bus. “The pros are like family. We have a great time. We have mutual respect for one another.”

Murgatroyd danced on Broadway before joining “Dancing with the Stars.” Originally trained in ballet, she competed in ballroom competitions from ages 17 to 21. “Ballroom is extremely different than ballet,” she said. “I had to throw away a lot that I learned in ballet. I didn’t know what I was doing at first. With ballroom, you have free range to do what you want with your artistry. It’s an amazing art form.” She thinks that shows such as “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars” have brought ballroom to the forefront. “Before, it was boring and uncool, something your grandparents did. It wasn’t for young people,” she said. “Now, ballroom dancing is on another level.”

Working on “Dancing with the Stars” is intensive. Professional dancers mentor their celebrity partners at least five hours a day, seven days a week during the competition. “We have a lot on our plate,” Carson said. “We have to come up with choreography, wardrobe and production. You have to please the fans, and you have to please the celebrity. I always want my celebrity walking away like he had the best experience possible.” She and the other pros will only have about 72 hours off after the tour ends before they begin mentoring new celebrities for the winter season of the television show. “We are going nonstop,” Carson said, adding that the workload doesn’t bother her. “This is a passion of mine. It’s something I have wanted for some time.”

Also, here’s a review from MassLive.com. This review says this show is a “vast improvement” from their first.

Clearly, Willis has the moves and voice to succeed on Broadway.

In addition to Chmerkovskiy, “DWTS” pros Peta Murgatroyd, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, and Emma Slater strutted their stuff alongside troupe dancers Alan Bersten, Brittany Cherry, Sasha Farber and Jenna Johnson.

With a lineup heavy on professionals and light on celebrities, the Mohegan Sun Arena crowd was treated to 90 minutes of top flight ballroom dancing, including a lively jive set to “Jump, Jive an’ Wail” and performed by Slater and Farber.

Melissa Rycroft, who was the Season 15 champion, was a congenial hostess for the night. A recent knee injury kept her off the dance floor, but she moved the evening along at a brisk pace.

The current tour is a vast improvement over a previous trek, which played the Mohegan Sun Arena in January.

Gone was the poorly scripted banter between the participants and a greater emphasis was placed on dancing.

Chmerkovskiy, Murgatroyd and Carson, all “DWTS” champs, were clearly crowd favorites.
