Heads up, Dancing With The Stars and Strictly Come Dancing Fans. According to Hello Magazine, Kristina Rihanoff announced a “one day only” West End stage show with Gleb Savchenko which will take place in December. As the Strictly Come Dancing fans know, Kristina just had a baby a few months ago. Well, she’s eager to get back in shape and dance. Here are some details. Note how the idea came from Gleb’s wife, Elena Samodanova.
The lavish show is the brainchild of TV dance show judge and Gleb’s wife, Elena Samodanova, and it will give fans (young and old alike) a chance to get up close and personal with two of their favourite Strictly stars.
“We’re going to have audience participation,” Kristina says excitedly. “People can come on stage and dance with us and we’ll have a Q&A so people can ask any questions they have. We want to give back to our fans who have been so supportive.”
The exciting performances will give British fans of the show, still mourning the loss of hunky Gleb, a chance to see him in person, hot from the set of the American show Dancing With the Stars where he’s currently working.
“I know the fans are missing Gleb,” Kristina says, laughing. “So this is a chance for them to catch up with him! He was truly embraced by the British fans last year.”
Tickets for the performances will be available from 10am on Thursday, 22 September, via telephone (0203 725 7060) or online at rutlive.co.uk/event/one-more-dance/. For more information visit onemoredance.london or adelphi.theatre. Meet and greet packages are available.

Aren’t the photos below fun? Last night, “Dancing Pros Live” with Edyta Sliwinska, Alan Thicke, Cheryl Burke, Gleb Savchenko, Elena Samodanova, and Benji Schwimmer premiered in at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls. From what I’m reading at twitter, Cheryl did an amazing job at co-hosting. The show is being described as beautiful, multi-talented & amazing! There was a special mention on Benji which I’m not surprised. When I saw the show last year, he was amazing. Don’t forget you can see “Dancing Pros Live” from February 18th-25th.

Strictly Come Dancing Wants Elena Samodanova, Isabel Edvardsson, And Peta Murgatroyd To Dance Next Season
This rumor keeps surfacing that Strictly Come Dancing in the UK wants Gleb Savchenko’s wife Elena Samodanova to dance in their next season. But, according to OK! Magazine via The Sun, they also want Isabel Edvardsson and Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgatroyd. They can pursue Peta all they want, but, I don’t think this is going to happen. I really hope it’s true about Elena though. Keeps fingers crossed.
GLEB Savchenko’s wife Elena Samodanova is wanted as a new professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing.
The Russian hunk’s partner is one of a number of international female dancers being pursued by the BBC show to replace Ola Jordan, Kristina Rihanoff and Aliona Vilani, who all quit at the close of the 2015 season.
A source told The Sun: “Elena would be perfect on the show and Gleb really missed her last year.
“Losing three such popular dancers will be a real blow unless we move quickly to sign up the best, most creative and captivating dancers.”
Others being chased as potential new stars are Swedish Isabel Edvardsson, currently on the German version of Strictly, and Peta Murgatroyd from America’s Dancing With The Stars.
The source added: “We want brilliant personalities on Strictly, but also brilliant dancers.

Be sure to visit The Skip Sheffield. They have some beautiful photos of “Ballroom With A Twist-mas” show in Boca Raton. They also reviewed the show calling it “nothing short of spectacular”. Read on for more…
The dancing, directed and choreographed by Jaymz Tuaileva, is nothing short of spectacular. The real show-stopper is “American Idol” finalist Vonzell Solomon. That girl, aka Baby V, has some fine pipes.
“Twist-Mas” features a live onstage band, with players who double as singers. My favorite is Chantil Dukart, who spent most of her time wearing headphones, hunched over her keyboards. But when she took off the headphones and hit center stage, that girl was on.
While “Twist-Mas” features favorite Christmas themed-songs both sacred (“Silent Night”) and secular (“Jingle Bells Rock”), the main attraction is the dancing, executed by first-class professionals. You even get a question-and-answer session with the headliners.
It’s been a longtime since I took ballroom dancing lessons from the late Miss Betty D’Avray. While the illusion is to look effortless, ballroom dance is deceptively difficult and a lot of work. If you can appreciate that, you will love this show. I know I did.
What a fun blast from the past this is. If you go to WPBF.com, you can see former Dancing With The Stars pros Jonathan Roberts And Lacey Schwimmer talk about Ballroom With A Twist-mas. Note how Jonathan has choreographed some of the dances. You can see some of the costumes too. To read more on the show, see The Palmbeach Post. For tickets and all the dates in Decemeber, see The Wick.
What a super interview with Gleb Savchenko and Hot Spots Magazine. He talks on his dancing career, Dancing With The Stars, Strictly Come Dancing, and performing in Ballroom With A Twist-mas In Florida on December 23 – 27th in Florida.
When did you first know that dancing was going to be your career?
When I won my first Russian Championship at the age of 12. I realized that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Tell us a little bit about Ballroom with a Twist-Mas! How does one combine ballroom dancing and the holidays?
I’m very happy to be a part of the Ballroom with a Twist-Mas! show. It’s currently one of the best American dance theatre shows. People love dancing, especially during the holiday season, and they have a chance to see a dance performance in an intimate theatre with all the world’s best dancers in it.
You’ve competed in a number of Dancing with the Stars franchises, and right now you’re in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. How are you doing? Who is your partner and how well are you getting along?
I’ve been doing DWTS in four different countries. At the moment I’m doing Strictly and I’m paired with a TV presenter, Anita Rani. We are doing very well and at the moment, we’re going through week 10 of the competition. Hope with all the hard work we put in, we will be able to get into the final and maybe win the Mirrorball.
