Hi Edyta!! How are you and how was your holidays? I bet it was fun having a little wee one to share them with this year?
It was a very special time for us; Michael’s first Christmas and shortly after his first birthday. We got to celebrate with our closest friends and family, which was really great and fun, since a lot of our friends have kids close to Michael’s age.
So, we hear you are about to embark on a new tour for “Dancing Pros Live. Can you tell us a little about it? What kind of dancing will it feature?
It’s an interactive competition on the stage where five professional couples compete for the audience’s vote by dancing solos in two rounds. The most fun part of the show is that in the end every member of the audience gets to vote for their favorite couple via remote device attached to their seat.
Besides couple’s solos there are big production numbers featuring variety of dance styles; ballroom, lyrical, west coast swing, jitterbug…Our cast is truly amazing, so it’s a very entertaining and high quality show.
We hear Karina Smirnoff will be a judge. Will she also be dancing in the new tour?
From what I know, Karina will dance in a featured solo performance. I am really excited to see Karina again!
Will you be dancing in the tour as well? If so, what kind of dances?
I will participate in a very energetic group jitterbug and will dance a paso doble solo.
Many of us, including myself, miss you on Dancing With The Stars. In fact, YOU were responsible for many of us becoming fans to the show in the beginning including myself and John (the administrator to PureDWTS). So, if you were to name your favorite season, which one would it be? What were a few of your favorite dances on the show?
It would be season 3 where I danced with Joey Lawrance and season 5 with Jason Taylor. I loved the Rumba with Joey and Quickstep with Jason but my favorite were some of the result show performances I did with my real life partner, Alec. We danced to Adele, Celine Dion or Colbie Calliat. These were very special to me.
