What a fun and interesting new interview with Dancing With The Stars Edyta Sliwinska and Roanoke.com. She talks of her favorite dances in her and Alec Mazo’s “Dancing Pros Live” show, the most difficult part of the tour, and what’s next for her and Alec when the tour ends at the of April (TPTB, if you read this, please ask them back for a performance for the Anniversary show!). You can read more below and at the link. For tickets and scheduling information for “Dancing Pros Live”, see this link. I promise….you won’t be sorry you missed it.
Q: What dances can we see on the show?
A little bit of everything. You’ll see ballroom, contemporary, swing, jitterbug, Charleston, African samba …
Q: What is the most difficult part of the tour?
Probably the traveling and staying in hotels. I’m traveling with a baby, too, and it’s just so exhausting. But you just keep going on because you want to bring the best show to the audience that you can possibly put on.
Q: Your husband has won a season of “Dancing with the Stars” and you’ve come in second — is there friendly competition there?
At the beginning there was. As ballroom dancers, you’re already pretty competitive — that’s why you get into ballroom dancing in the first place. But I would have to say that it’s healthy competition. One partner might be very good at choreography and the other could be very good at coming up with concepts, so they’re able to join forces and create something amazing because of that. Alec is very good at logistics whereas I’m very good with artistic vision. You balance each other out and encourage one another.
Q: What’s up next for you after the tour?
Alec and I will be producing a show for a casino in Canada. It’s a singing competition show with audience voting just like “Dancing Pros Live.” There will be very little dancing. There will be some to accompany duets or group numbers. But we’ll have singers from “The Voice,” “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent.”
Q: What advice do you have for aspiring dancers?
If you really love it and you continue to really love it, then work hard and stick to it. Get out there and show your talent. Don’t limit yourself to one style of dancing. You can specialize in one type of dance but you should know all types of dances. Take all the classes you can. Don’t be afraid to branch out into acting and singing or other forms of talent.
Hey, just an reminder! “Dancing Pros Live” only has 5 shows left. If you live or are travelling to the east coast in April, try and see the show as Drew Lachey, Karina Smirnoff, Edyta Sliwinska, and Chelsie Hightower are dancing as well as dance champions from all over the world. It’s a MUST SEE! You can read my personal review and experience of the show and go backstage with Edyta Sliwinska and Karina Smirnoff at this link. I had such a blast. If interested in tickets and scheduling information, see the official site of “Dancing Pros Live”.
Also, we updated the schedule for Ballroom With A Twist. Their Spring and Summer Schedule is starting to take shape. To read more about it, see this post.
Thanks to Jim for this gem. It’s great to see Karina again. Such a breath of fresh air….
Hey All! Let’s send some love to Karina Smirnoff. She’s recently been through a break up as some of you might have recently read. To make things worse and more hurtful, some people and sites like dragging people through the mud with things they have no idea about. Instead, let’s appreciate the beautiful moments this wonderful pro has given us all of these years on Dancing With The Stars. There are so many, I can’t count them all. And speaking of Dancing With The Stars, Karina recently talked about Season 20 in this new interview with NBC New York while promoting her new book “We’re Just Not That Into You”. Check it out. She’s having “spray tan” withdrawals and has a soft spot for Noah Galloway….
ETA: Below is a Nancy Grace interview too…
For those missing Karina Smirnoff, here’s a new interview with Access Hollywood. She talks about her dating disasters and gives dating advise in promotion with her new book, “We’re Just Not That Into You“! She also talks on Dancing With The Stars at the end. Be sure to watch Home And Family on Friday as she’s on that show too.
