Dancing with the Stars Season 22 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. :-)

I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?

Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. :-) There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual.

The lists below reflect who was a pro last season and who wasn’t. I don’t really think Louis will be back because Paula asked specifically for him. Kym? Who knows?

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 .

A Dancing With The Stars Live Show Review From The Colosseum, Windsor Ontario

You all might know Al Kahn aka @Idolxfactor1 as he does a lot of videos for fans during the on and off season of Dancing With The Stars. This past Friday night he saw the Dancing With The Stars Live “Dance All Night” show in Windsor, Ontario. He told us “it did not disappoint” from the amazing sets, the awesome choreographed routines, and the fun audience participation throughout the entire 2 plus hours. He also thought it had clever scripting for how they got Alek Skarlatos involved. Al has written an awesome review of the show at his site. Be sure to read it at IdolXfactor.com. He’s posted a huge gallery of photos and some video too. A must read and see when you get time! If you haven’t seen the show yet, be sure to get tickets here. Photo below courtesy of @Idolxfactor1. THANKS Al!!!

“After watching & promoting dancers for the past 6 years….the overriding message I get from these dedicated artists….they truly adore what they do & when it comes to performance, there is no place they rather be then on stage pouring there hearts out & giving every ounce of emotion they can muster to us!!” – by Al Kahn aka @Idolxfactor1

PureDWTS Exclusive Interview With Dancing With The Stars Lindsay Arnold!!

One thing we wanted to do in this off season was talk with pro Lindsay Arnold for the big mark she made on Dancing With The Stars last season. She sealed so many of us as big fans now not only for her sweet and humble personality, but, for the dancer, teacher, and choreographer she’s become. In a new PureDWTS interview below, Lindsay talks all about the last season of Dancing With The Stars. John was able to ask her so many cool questions on her most favorite dance in her career, whether she’ll be back for the next season of Dancing With The Stars, her thoughts on the pros using outside choreographers for some of their dances and so much more. She also talks with us about the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour and how different it is this time from previous shows. Enjoy and THANK YOU LINDSAY for your time! We hope you are back as a Pro for Dancing With The Stars Season 22!! For Tickets to see Lindsay on the Dancing With The Stars Live “Dancing All Night” tour, see DWTStour.com.
