Dancing with the Stars Season 25 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year once again folks. And sans Derek and Mark, I can’t say I’m terribly enthused…unless we can get Sasha or Sharna a MBT this time around. 😉

If you have something to contribute, PLEASE PROVIDE a SOURCE – by that I mean a link. We appreciate the help, but it needs to be sourced, otherwise it’s just a distraction. Thx.

Derek recently said, very firmly, that he’s not coming back. Since he’s committed to NBC I would assume that to be solid, despite what he says about Celine Dion. 😉 I’m fairly sure I heard Mark say that he is out as well, but I’m not as sure about that. Peta has started playing the Chmerkovskiy salary negotiation game – all three (Peta, Val and Maks) have implied they “might” be back. Peta pretty much outright said if she gets a good partner. I have a question mark by Jenna with the word out because I think it hinges on SYTYCD. Based on her pick, I suspect she’ll be available.

ETA: Let the guessing begin!! I guess Tony and Cheryl.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

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. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . To view my photography site, see Lisa Kay Photography.

New Troupe Member Kiril Kulish Comments On Dancing With The Stars , Broadway, And More

Broadway.com has a new feature up on new Dancing With The Stars troupe member and Tony winner Kiril Kulish. He comments on his new dance role on Dancing With The Stars, choreographing, and Derek Hough. Read on…

Lucky for the “Born to Boogie” boy, he will have the opportunity to choreograph on DWTS. “We of course are in a lot of the dancers’ numbers with the celebrities,” Kulish told us. “We get to be on the creative end a bit.” In fact, Kulish was tapped for the ABC series’ kid-version at age 13. However, he was already under contract with Billy Elliot, which would go on to win ten Tony Awards, including one for Best Musical.

As for Dancing with the Stars vets Kulish looks up to, he told Broadway.com, “I can definitely relate to [Derek Hough] because he’s very versatile. Derek is a good guy. He told me to just enjoy it.” Triple threat Derek Hough has taken home the DWTS trophy six times and is Broadway-bound for producer Harvey Weinstein’s Singin’ in the Rain revival. Perhaps Kulish will follow in Hough’s fancy footsteps and take another Broadway bow? We certainly think it’d be electric.

Could Kiril Kulish Be A New Dancer On The Troupe Of Dancing With The Stars Season 22?

You might have noticed there is a new dancer in the latest Dancing With The Stars promo. You can see a screen shot of him below courtesy of @ValenaFans. His name is Kiril Kulish. What a great get he would be. As well as dancing (and Ballroom dancing at that!), he’s an actor and singer. He’s also won a Tony Award for “Best Lead Actor” in “Billy Elliot The Musical”. Note how his website says he has a big announcement in March. To read more about Kiril, see Wiki and his personal website. Thanks to Geri in comments for bringing this to our attention.
