DWTS Pros Louis Van Amstel And Anna Trebunskaya Live It Up In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Thanks to Kathy Manabat and on behalf of photographer Jay Schwartz, below are some fabulous takes of “Dancing with the Stars” pro-dancers Louis Van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya as they vacationed together at Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico recently. According to Kathy, Louis taught his LaBlast Master Classes at the resort. Louis and Anna also spent time relaxing poolside and on the beach fronting Casa Dorada, taking in spa massages and enjoying meals at the resort’s 12 Tribes restaurant. They look like they are having the time of their lives, don’t they? We are wondering why we weren’t invited to cover this event live? Maybe next time they will take this into consideration along with free Margaritas! :) For resort information for Caso Dorada, visit this link.

DWTS14 Louis Van Amstel Says The Pros Will Know Whether They Dance Or Not In A Month

Louis Van Amstel was a guest on KTLA to promote his new LaBlast fitness and dance DVDs, but, here is the interesting part. Louis also talks about Dancing With The Stars and how the pros have a month to wait before they find out if they dance or not. First producers will find all of the celebrities and then start matching them with height first and then personality. They talk of how they put “opposites” together as well. You can listen to the new interview at KTLA. I like what he says about “daring to give up control” and “give up thinking” when you want to learn how to dance.

Again, if you’d like to know more on Louis’ new LaBlast DVDs and how you can order them, visit Louis’ LaBlast Fitness site.

ADDING: Louis did a segment on The Talk on Friday. He promotes his new LaBlast DVDs and gets the ladies dancing. If interested, see it at The Talk’s official site here in the 5th segment.

DWTS Louis Van Amstel ‘Taking Ballroom Dancing To The Next Step’

This past week, Dancing With The Stars pro, Louis Van Amstel, went to Charlotte, North Carolina to give some private dance lessons and to promote his dance fitness business “LaBlast”. Tony Prado of Queen City Ballroom in Charlotte says Ballroom Dancing is the new alternative to fighting crowded gyms to stay in shape for the new year …especially “after seeing celebrities transform their bodies on the hit ABC show “Dancing with the Stars.” Below is Louis’ take on it from WSOCTV.

“Because that is what “Dancing with the Stars” is about,” said Van Amstel. “No dance experience, and how fast can you change someone’s life; how inspiring can you be.”

Van Amstel has taken ballroom dancing to the next step. He’s modified the traditional dances like rumba, cha cha and disco a high-energy, low-impact workout program.

“La Blast” is really a work out in disguise,” said Van Amstel. “Because you dance to your favorite music, you learn all these dances, and yet, you’re losing all that weight.”

Prado said whether you’re looking to lose weight, or you just want to learn how to dance, the best part is, anyone can start dancing. “It’s definitely for all ages. Our youngest dancer is four years old and our oldest dancer is 94.”

I’d sure like to see that 94 year old swinging those hips. I agree how dancing is for all ages!!

You can read the full story at WSOCTV as well seeing a new video of Louis talking about it.
