DWTSRussaATangoGlebSavchenko

Wow, is the photo of Adelina Sotnikova above not beautiful?! Powerful stuff! Gleb Savchenko posted it at his instagram saying, “Tomorrow is gonna be epic!!!! We are dancing an Argentine Tango.” Bring it on Gleb and Adelina! We can’t wait!!!

For those wanting to tune into Dancing With The Stars Russia today to watch Gleb Savchenko, Adelina Sotnikova, and Elena Samodanova, see Live Russia TV. If the LIVE stream doesn’t work, check my twitter page or dm me at twitter and I’ll send you another link. It starts at 9:45 ET. Or stay tuned to the spot below as we plan to post pictures and a video of Gleb and Adelina as soon as we can. Thanks to All who are following. We also so appreciate our Russian translators too who post in comments on the show.

ETA: Adelina and Gleb’s dance was indeed “epic”. It touched me so much, I cried. The dance had some of the best choreography I’ve ever seen him do. It was visually stunning with the ocean and water effects. The moves at the end were show stopping. They scored a perfect 50 and placed 1st this week. They placed 3rd over all (I thought for sure this dance would put them in 2nd or 1st place).

DWTS Russia Week 6: Watch Gleb Savchenko And Adelina Sotnikova Dance A Rumba

GlebAdelina2

Ready for another fun Saturday with Dancing With The Stars Russia? If you are up early and would like to watch the show on a LIVE stream to watch Gleb Savchenko, Adelina Sotnikova, and Elena Samodanova, see Live Russia TV. It starts at 9:45 ET. We plan to post a video of Glen and Adelina as soon as we can. So check back for updates and be sure to us know what you think in comments. Below are some photos of them rehearsing during the week courtesy of their instagrams. You can also watch some fun rehearsals in these videos here, here, here, and here. “Break a leg”, Guys!!!

ETA: Gleb and Adelina scored a 47 with their Rumba. I was shocked they didn’t receive a higher score being most of the panel of judges throws out 10’s? Anyway, Gleb and Adelina were just fantastic again in my opinion. Their Rumba made me think of Spring, a new romance, hope, and joy!! It was full of heart and emotion. We hope to have video soon. Though some of the sites I had saved to get videos have blocked people internationally. So, it might be harder to get video as quick. You can view some beautiful photos of them at NastinLi twitter account.

ETA2: Here they are! Let us know what you think….

Dance Pro Gleb Savchenko Interviewed About DWTSRussia And Partner Adelina Sotnikova

Many of you have been following our journey with Gleb Savchenko as he dances on Dancing With The Stars Russia this season. Well, you might find this new interview with the Ice Network interesting as Gleb talks of how he got a chance to dance on the show with Adelina Sotnikova. He also discusses what rehearsals with her have been like, her strengths and weaknesses, and much more. Be sure to read the full interview and stay tuned. We’ll be making a new post on Gleb and Adelina for Week 4 of Dancing With The Stars Russia on Saturday!

ETA: Note how DWTS Russia is a charity project and that the money is donated to help children! Awesome!

Icenetwork: Although you are Russian, you’re mostly based in Los Angeles. How did you get the prime assignment of partnering Adelina Sotnikova?

Savchenko: When I knew that there was a chance for me to dance with Adelina, I got really excited, but I still had to think about it because it’s a big change for me to move from L.A. for such a long time. One very important thing made my decision easier: when I learned that DWTS Russia was a charity project and that the money would be donated to help children. After that, I didn’t have to think about it too long. Plus, Adelina is an Olympic champion, and I have a good chance to do well in this competition.

Icenetwork: How much time did you get to practice together before the first show?

Savchenko: We practiced for two weeks before the first show, but it wasn’t every day. She had other commitments and shows.

Icenetwork: How have your experiences on the U.S. DWTS helped prepare you for the Russian version?

Savchenko: It’s amazing how most of the countries have DWTS and all of them are so different. I still would say that the U.S. version is the best! I had an opportunity to be a part of it for three seasons. I’ve learned a lot being on the show, not just different dance styles, but in many other areas: how the production works, how they shoot the show.

Being a pro on the Russian version will give me a good chance to show what I’ve learned and how I can teach Adelina, producing a good quality of dancing and making a good show.

Icenetwork: What are your impressions of Adelina?

Savchenko: She works very hard, like a real champ; [she’s] very focused and will not quit until it’s done perfectly. We established good communication between us, and I treat her like my younger sister.

Icenetwork: She is a singles skater and, therefore, doesn’t have much partnering experience. What have been some of her challenges in doing partner work and what has she been a natural at doing?

Savchenko: She has a natural movement and great coordination, and is very musical. She’s never danced with a partner before, but it feels like it’s not a problem for her; she picks [things] up very fast. I’m working on improving her footwork, dance technique and posture.

DWTS Russia Week 3: Gleb Savchenko And Adelina Sotnikova Dance A Fox Trot

It’s Dancing With The Stars Russia Week 3! This week Gleb Savchenko and Adelina Sotnikova take on the Fox Trot. Remember when Gleb danced a Fox Trot with Lisa Vanderpump in our version of Dancing With The Stars? It ended up being a fan favorite.

In other exciting news this week for Gleb and Elena! Their dance underwear line “The Gleb Collection” will soon be making a debut in dance shops all over Russia. Too fun!!

Ok, that gets you caught up. Here’s to Week 3 of Dancing With The Stars Russia and wishing them all GOOD LUCK!! If interested in watching the show today on a LIVE stream, see Live Russia TV. Note the time change. It starts at 12:55pm ET!! If you can’t catch it, that’s ok. We hope to post videos as soon as we can in the spot below. Be sure to let them know what you think in comments.

ETA: Ok, I’m kind of confused because the stream started early (oh how I wish I understood Russian). Below is Gleb and Adelina’s Fox Trot thanks to Gleb RTing! How beautiful is this!! LOVES! They scored a 43 with it. Thanks to @jane9668 for the heads up and helping me in my confusion. lol

ETA2: So, according to this twitter exchange, they decided at the last minute to air the show at the same time last week instead of the new time. Not sure why.

ETA3: You can watch all the videos for yesterday’s show here.

And isn’t this a lovely photo courtesy of Elena…

GlebAdelina

Shortly, Gleb Savchenko and his partner Adelina Sotnikova are going to dance a Cha Cha in week 2 of Dancing With The Stars Russia. We’ll be reporting on their dance as soon as we can. In the meantime, go to Russia TV to watch the show go down around 8:45a.m ET. You’ll get to see Gleb’s wife Elena Samodanova judge as well!

ETA: Gleb and Adelina scored a perfect 50 points from the judges and placed 2nd for the night (adding: or did they tie? It’s hard to understand since it’s all in Russian). They killed it out there tonight. Words that came to mind first on their dance: stylish, sleek, fun, colorful, light, and sexy. They brought the power and the fun! I also loved the gentle and fun way Gleb taught her. Be watching this link as they should be posting the video for their dance soon as well as all of the dances!

ETA2: Here’s some video….
