As you might remember from a previous posting, Gleb Savchenko is a pro in Dancing With The Stars Russia!!! Below is new promo with him. His partner is ice skater and Olympic Champion Adelina Sotnikova. Let’s wish them luck as the show premieres on the 7th of February. Hopefully, Gleb will post us a link for where we can vote when it’s time. Special thanks to Carlos and his Dancing With The Stars Brazil facebook page for all the help with this post.
LIVE BLOG is happening here, which is where all the pros will be added as it happens.
Well, a lot has happened since I last wrote one of these posts. In fact, I normally post pro watch for the spring season in early February – yet here we are. Why? Well, Derek is taking a season off to star at Radio City (looks so happy he may never come back), Cheryl appears to have retired from DWTS and is moving on to a different (reality-based?) show, and Val and Sharna are both blabbing about the next season.
And as of last night, Karina is OUT. Hell, I had this post scheduled for tomorrow and here I am posting it today – ya’ll gotta have somewhere to be sad about Karina. (ETA: Vogue was at last night’s show and came away with different and new info re: Karina. Stay tuned.)
In Sharna’s case, I think her hint means she’s definitely IN – after last season I don’t think she would be coy if there were any doubt. And if there is doubt? Bad move, girl. As for Val – I don’t think there’s any way in hell he won’t be on, with Maks and Derek gone and Mark making noise. No way. And he’s saying yes, he is back. Read more..
A huge huge congratulations are in order for Gleb Savchenko And Elena Samodanova!! The two dance pros are dancing in Dancing With The Stars in Russia!!! See their twitter accounts here and here. They are beyond happy!! I’m going to cry I’m so happy for these two!!! So so cool!!! Twitter pic below courtesy of Elena Samodanova.
ETA: We wrote to Gleb to get more information on he and Elena. Here’s what he wrote to us:
Yes I’m doing DWTS in Russia which premieres on the 7th of February. I’m dancing and not judging. Elena is doing lots of choreography and opening show numbers. She supposed to be in the show as a dancer, but at the very last moment production changed the whole concept and instead of 6 boys and 6 girls now they have 14 boys so it means that celebs are only women and it’s 14 couples.
I’m very excited and can’t wait who is my partner gonna be!
Thanks Gleb!!! Much luck to the both of you!!! We’ll be sure to vote!!!

Did you all have a Merry Christmas? It looks like the cast of Dancing With The Stars had a good one. Below are some instagrams from them all or their families. Each and everyone of them gave me an awww moment. See if they give you one too…
Lois has written us another fabulous blog for us and this time, she tributes the Dancing With The Stars Troupe and how much it’s evolved. WELL DONE LOIS! Thanks so much. Read on, Everyone…
I became inspired to write this essay one night as I was watching DANCING WITH THE STARS. I usually watch some dances as a way to unwind from my day. I was thinking what a commanding presence The Troupe has become on the show. I decided to give them their due.
A TRIBUTE TO A TROUPE
A definition of a Dancing Troupe is simply a group of dancers dancing together. However, A TRIBUTE TO A TROUPE encompasses a far-reaching definition. The Troupe has evolved over the seasons into an integral, important, incredible group!
The Troupe first appeared in Season 12. They played a more back-up role in their first seasons. But, Read more..
We couldn’t resist posting this gem of a pic below of Dancing With The Stars pro Gleb Savchenko. He posted this picture at his instagram with this Mother Teresa quote, “Peace begins with a smile”. Isn’t that the truth …especially in light of all the violence in the world today? Good One, Gleb!!!
Also, just a reminder to dance fans needing some Christmas ideas, see the Gleb Collection!! A MUST GET for yourself or any fellow dancer or dance fan!
Lastly, @DANCINGABC aka TPTB, please make this special guy a Pro or a part of the show next season (and the new tours). He’s one of the fans most desired pros and for several seasons!!
Finally!! The new Jennifer Lopez Lopez L’Oreal Commercial has been released starring Dancing With The Stars Gleb Savchenko! Congratulations Gleb! Yes, “it was definitely worth it”!! Beautiful!
PureDWTS Exclusive Interview: Gleb Savchenko Talks On His Return To Dancing With The Stars Season 19
Many times the producers have this special way of creating magical, golden moments on Dancing With The Stars. I thought last week’s Dancing With The Stars Season 19 premiere was one of best premieres…. especially with the return of pro dancer Gleb Savchenko dancing in the opening number and through out the show. What a special surprise (thank you Rob Wade!)!! In light of Gleb returning to dance, several of you have been asking if Gleb will be dancing again on the show. We were curious too, so, we wrote to him and asked him. We also asked him if he’d tell us on his experience last week. Read on for more and how he teases us with the first question. Gleb, thank you so much for your time!!!xxx
How are you? Good to hear from you and thanks for reaching out.
I very much enjoyed performing on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars last week – I’m so glad you liked it too!
Being asked to dance in the opening number of this season was such an honor and I had a blast working with the whole DWTS cast and crew again. I really appreciate all the fan support – I wouldn’t be here without you guys!
I thought the show open was really well produced, especially the video package transitioning into the in-studio dance, and of course partnering with Sharna Burgess for that was a Read more..
