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..

What’s more, it looks like Josh Gad And Kevin Hart are taking part in this performance as well. Russell Wilson is also pictured. Is he part of the performance? Stay tuned. This is going to be fun….
And here are more pics… Read more..
Sorry for being late with this report. Charlie’s team of Angels have been really busy today working and travelling. Anyway, below is TMZ with more celeb leaks…
Famously eccentric designer Betsey Johnson is bringing her brand of crazy to “Dancing with Stars” … along with the much younger YouTube fashionista Bethany Mota.
As we told you … ABC had been looking to sign a big social media star … and found her in 18-year-old Mota … who’s amassed more than 7 million fans with her YouTube tutorials on fashion, hair and makeup.
Sources close to the show tell us … producers have also tapped “Back to the Future” actress Lea Thompson, Jonathan Bennett from “Mean Girls,” Janel Parrish from “Pretty Little Liars,” and Sadie Robertson — granddaughter of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.
Fascinating, let us know what you think? I love Lea Thompson especially!
Just remember nothing is 100% until the official cast announcement on September 4th.
Last, but, not least, Kristyn Burtt reports Henry Byalikov, Jenna Johnson, Lindsey Arnold and Sasha Farber as this season’s troupe members. (what about Gleb? )
I always enjoy these Dancing With The Stars scoops from Kristyn Burtt. In this video, she mentions how we’ve all seen Jenna Johnson, Lindsey Arnold, and Henry Byalikov rehearsing for the first opening number. Though what’s interesting is…none of them have heard on their “official” role for Season 19 yet. More below from Kristyn…
A lot is happening at Dance With Me Studios over the summer including two “Sway” shows on July 26th which will include the Chmerkovskiy brothers Maks and Val, Tony Dovolani, Peta Murgatroyd, Jenna Johnson, Zendaya, and more. The site has also made a new video promoting dancing and soccer/football and “showing the world we are one”. It’s pretty cool. Check it out here when you get a chance. You can see Val Chmerkovskiy at the end.
Aviva sent us this little gem last night and it’s just so cute!! It’s no wonder Witney Carson And Jenna Johnson became the dancers that they are now. And is that Lindsey Arnold with the camera?
First, let’s WELCOME! the new cast of Dancing With The Stars, Season 18! If anything, this season will have people talking! I don’t know if that will be a good thing or a bad thing yet. Time will tell. Here’s a quick bio of our new cast, since it is unusual that everyone knows everyone. None of them will be complete, so I’m sure there’s things that you think I should have added. Put it into the comments section, please.
DANICA MCKELLER is 39 years old and has lived in the Los Angeles area for most of her life. Since it is stated in her IMDB profile that her mom owned a dance studio, it is probably safe to assume that she has had dance training. She was Winnie Cooper on “Wonder Years,” and I am old enough that I remember when that show was first on! She’s very intelligent, she graduated Summa Cum Laude from UCLA as a Math major, and has written a few books to help youth with math (I think…) In other words, she’s beauty AND brains! Danica is paired with Val Chmerkovskiy. I’m not sure yet about this couple. They look good together, and they will get past the halfway part of the season, because they look good together. That means they have TONS of chemistry to the judges, whether we can see it or not.
CODY SIMPSON is 17 years old and from Australia. He DOES have a girlfriend, she’s the daughter of one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so if TPTB were hoping for some romance between him and Witney, they’re out of luck! And he’s a singer. And honestly, that’s about it! And he seems to be extremely popular on Social Media. Cody is paired with Witney Carson. This is her 1st season as a teaching pro, she spent 2 seasons in the Troupe, immediately following a season on SYTYCD. I will be honest, I was completely against pairing them up, and I still am against pairing them up. Yes, they needed someone young, since they cast a teenaged boy, but I think she’s too untested. I know Zendaya was the same age, but teenage boys do mature slower than girls. I keep remembering the other Cody, who was 19 when he was on. This Cody is even younger, so I do think that while he does need a younger female pro, he also needs someone quite mature, and I think Witney is too untested yet. And, I don’t think I know her choreography skills. I think she’s the latest in a long line of them trying to find Julianne 2.0 and I don’t think it will succeed. Again, they’re young and cute and look good together, so to the judges, it will equal “tons of chemistry.” Read more..
