DWTS2013 Sharna Burgess Interviewed At The USA Hip-Hop Dance Championships In Las Vegas

Do you like Hip-Hop dancing? I love it, but, I tend to love every style of dance…even Square Dancing. Yes. :D

Speaking of….our Miss Sharna is currently in Las Vegas, Nevada judging the USA Hip-Hop Dance Championships. The Las Vegas Sun interviewed her to get her thoughts about it and why she thinks this style of dance is so popular and how it and the dancers are inspiring to her. Being open to new things is an important part of growing and you can tell in her dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Do you agree?? Here is more….

Why do you think hip-hop dance is so popular worldwide?

I think it’s relative to two things. The evolution of hip-hop dance styles and their popularity runs parallel with the evolution of hip-hop music and its growing culture. It’s been around since the late ’70s, early ’80s, but it wasn’t until the 2000s when hip-hop culture began spreading worldwide.

And, as a result, the music and dance styles were no longer an underground thing. The world knew about them and the world fell in love with them.

The other thing that’s had a huge impact on hip-hop styles spreading internationally is social media. Hip-hop is American born, but the likes of YouTube has made it possible for kids in Asia, Europe and Australia to watch any style, to watch and learn from the greatest dance innovators of today.

It’s become accessible for anyone to watch and be inspired.

Why do you take time out of your busy schedule to judge the championship?

My first year with Hip-Hop International was last year, and I fell in love with everything I witnessed. I was truly inspired by these dancers, and not just because of their skill level and creative innovation.

All the crews had a camaraderie with the utmost respect for one another. They were united by an incredible love and dedication to their craft.

They lived and breathed hip-hop, and many had overcome life struggles and difficulties to be the dancer they are. It is a room full of true artists. That is something very special — and something not to be missed.

Lots more at the Las Vegas Sun including some pictures and videos! ADDING: You can also view some video and pictures of Sharna with Hip Op-erational – the world’s oldest hip hop dance crew, from New Zealand at this link.

Also, if you haven’t read our recent interview with Sharna, you can so at this link. Go Sharna!!

PureDWTS Exclusive: Sharna Burgess Reflects & Talks On DWTS 17, Gives “Michael Jackson One” Show Review

SharnaBurgess2

Hi All!!! Sharna Burgess talked with us recently about the new changes for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. She also reflected on the past season of Dancing With The Stars and what her first year was like as a pro. Sharna was also gracious enough to give us a sneak peek into what the new “Michael Jackson One” Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas is like one of which I’m dying to see and maybe you are too? Lots more below with our beautiful Sharna and we thank her once again for taking time to answer a few questions. Without further ado….

1. Hey Sharna!! How are you and how are you feeling after your first season as a Pro on Dancing With The Stars? Is it everything you hoped it would be?

It was amazing!! It certainly lived up to what I had hoped and Andy surpassed any expectations people had of him. Truly I enjoyed every moment, creatively and emotionally it was challenging rewarding and beautiful.

I don’t think I could ever have prepared myself for the weekly roller coaster of not knowing if my decisions were the right ones, if my choreography was enough or did my concept make sense. Wondering when it would come together or did I have to re think everything. It always came together because Andy is such a superstar, he truly helped me make my ideas come to life. I also couldn’t have guessed that I would make the emotional connection I did with Andy. He was such an amazing person to get to know and become a part of his life.

Derek Hough and A Different Kind of Choreography (Video)

I thought I posted this days ago, but apparently it didn’t “take”. :::shrug:::

Derek, along with Mark, has often been the pro most likely to get creative in between seasons of DWTS –  and often in unusual ways.  This off season, he has a new and different kind of student: a robot. A company called Tosy asked Derek to help them choreograph mRobo, which is…well, you’ll have to see it for yourself.  Derek went to Las Vegas to attend CES 2013 on Thursday to help present the work (to date) he’s done with mRobo and it appears he had a really good time doing it.  You can see more pictures of the event at PureDerekHough.com.

Have we seen the last of Derek on DWTS? Seems like it, but you never know with this guy. He mentioned on twitter recently that he has some “incredible projects” he’s working on this year, but that they may take a while to achieve. Yes, vague as always – he’s also the most tight lipped of all the pros, both personally and professionally – but it does sort of imply that he won’t have time for DWTS. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

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. :-)
