PureDWTS Exclusive: New Interview With Sharna Burgess, Special Message To Fans, And Lots More

We thought it was high time to catch up with Dancing With The Stars Sharna Burgess!! In a new exclusive interview below, Sharna chats with us about Dancing With The Stars Season 19. She answers fun questions on choreographing, whether Dancing With The Stars is neglecting ballroom styles, and the Dancing With The Stars Season 10th Anniversary coming up (but, her lips are completely sealed :) ). We also ask Sharna about her and Derek Hough’s routine for Goldie Hawn’s Inaugural “Love In For Kids” Benefit that took place a few weeks ago. She also chats with us about her upcoming projects including “Shall We Dance On Ice December 16th, “Sway“, and Dancing With The Stars At Sea. Also included is a special message to her fans. Lots lots more below. We thank her so much for taking time out of her busy schedule for us. Enjoy…

Vogue: Hello Miss Sharna! How are you? It’s so cool to visit with you again! I hope you are well and you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Hi love!!! Great to chat with you again! My thanksgiving was filled with lots of love and too much food… Exactly the way it should be

So, how are you feeling overall about Dancing With The Stars Season 19? Was it everything you expected? I thought it was a fantastic season. My only complaint is there weren’t enough Pro Numbers during the middle part of the season, but, for what we did see, they were fantastic thanks to your choreography.:) So, if you were to name your favorite pro number from this past season, which would it be and why?

Season 19 was a fantastic!! So much creativity from so many pros. I loved Derek’s salsa, paso and of course his freestyle. Mark and Sadie I loved nearly every dance, he was soooo on point this season with her!! And Val truly took his creative concepts and vision to another level this season, it wasn’t always about steps, it was about telling a story… And we all know that’s my favorite thing in the world!! And of course… We finally had a male celeb win since Peta and Donald Driver!!! Yay girl power and Witney certainly was the girl for the job… What a team!

Kate Hudson Mentions Dancing With DWTS Derek Hough, More Derek Hough Media

This is just too cool. Access Hollywood talked with Kate Hudson about her Shape Magazine shoot. In the interview, she mentions how she loves to dance. In light of this, she recently took up ballroom dancing with Derek Hough and how it came to be. I wish they’d do Dancing With The Stars together. What a beautiful pairing this would be!

Also, and in case you don’t know, there is a rumor Derek broke up with Nina Dobrov. In showing Derek some love and if you’d like to read and partake in an appreciation post for him, see this link at Pure Derek Hough. We’re letting positivity and love reign like the man himself does.

Derek Hough Interviewed About Kate Hudson, Maks Chmerkovskiy, New DWTS Season, And More

Hey All! For those who don’t know, last night Dancing With The Stars Emma Slater and Derek Hough danced in Central park, New York City for a “Sears Style” event. Emma has been posting some amazing high quality photos of the event at her twitter and her facebook which are a must see. For even more, don’t miss heading over to Pure Derek Hough when you get time for even more coverage including videos and twitter pictures.

Also at the event, Derek spoke with E News about the new season of Dancing With The stars. Derek mentioned why he decided to come back. There is also a mention on his sister Julianne and Maks Chmerkovskiy and whether we’ll see them return (I love what he says about Maks and it’s so true for the both of them!). Derek also mentioned how he’s teaching actress Kate Hudson how to dance and how he’d like to have her do a guest spot on the show. Here is take….

“I’ve been working with Kate Hudson a little bit lately for fun—just dancing for fun, giving her some lessons,” Hough told E! News exclusively at the Sears Shop Your Way and SearsStyle Jean Scene event in NYC. “She’s become a good friend and she’s great. I would love for her to do the show, but she would never. She’s fantastic. But I want her to maybe do a guest spot.”

I’d love to see this happen, would you? Be sure to read the full article at E News.

Thanks to Lori and Catherine L for the help with this post!!
