Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas Talks On His Guitar Collection, New Music, And More

The Huffington Post has a new interview up with Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas. He talks all about his love for guitars, his music, and the new album he’s working on. Below is a take which includes who he’d like collaborate with and talk of a sneaker line. Be sure to read the link for more on his music career. There are some cool pics of his guitar collection as well.

RH: Sounds sexy! Is there anyone you would have interest in collaborating with musically? Anyone you are currently working with?

BALLAS: I’m currently working with producers and writers whom I have the utmost respect for. I write all my own music but I love collaborating with other talented industry people. I’ve been in with Wizz Dumb and Jozzy (Dope By Accident) out of Miami, Timbaland and his whole camp, the Beamer Boyz, Jim Beanz, Thom Russo, Andre Meritt, and Sha. A list of artists I’d like to collaborate with or do a feature with? John Mayer, Robin Thicke, Ellie Goulding, B.O.B., Florence Welch (Florence And The Machine), Ed Sheeran, Nora Jones, Shakira. Also, Missy Elliot and Justin Timberlake of course…

RH: So many on that list I love as well. Do you see any other collections in your future? Perhaps autographs from all of the celebrities you have worked with on DWTS?

BALLAS: Well, I love sneakers, so I think my next collection will be all kinds of dope and wacky sneakers.

RH: I’d love a sneak preview at what is in store for Mark Ballas next. Anything you care to share?

BALLAS: My album is really my main priority and project. I recently signed with new management and the support from my publisher, BMG is really making everything come together. I’m looking forward to connecting with a label partner and releasing an album that portrays who I am and what my music is all about. I can’t wait to share it with everyone. I’m concentrating all of my energy and passion on this project.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

Mark Ballas Performs At Feinstein’s, Talks Of DWTS 14 Unknown Partner, The Partner Reveal, and More

Last night, Mark Ballas performed at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency Ballroom in New York City. Photographer Astrid Stawiarz of Getty Images was there to capture some shots from backstage which you can view more of at Zimbio. Olympic skater, Sasha Cohen, was at the event to watch as well which raised my eye brows a little for the way they were tweeting back and forth afterwards. Wouldn’t it be fun to see her dance on Dancing With The Stars? You can see a sweet picture of the two of them together here.

Mark also gave ABC7 an interview before performing at Feinstein’s where he talks about his music and dancing on Dancing With The Stars. If he had to choose between the two, he couldn’t. They remember his time with Bristol Palin on the show and how Mark is still friends with her to this day. At the end of the interview they ask him straight up who his partner will be for Season 14 (without asking him if he’s dancing). Mark smiles and answers that he doesn’t know who his partner will be and that they will find out who they dance with the day before the revealing on Feb. 28th. Does this mean Mark is officially dancing? You be the judge below. He also plugs Jennifer Aniston again.

If you’d like to watch Mark sing, he will be performing a free show at the Mohegan Sun on Friday, Feb. 10th. For details, visit their official site.

ADDING and back to Sasha, below is another tweet she made this morning after this post as posted. Hmmm….


“@: @ Handsome couple! I want you to dance with Mark on DWTS!” Me too!
