It’s that time again! Question: What Dance pros would you like to see dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 22? Pick only 12 (6 males and 6 females). You can also pick a few Alternatives in case they make the cast a little bigger or in case your main choices don’t work out. Who you would you like to see in the troupe as well? Let us know your picks in comments and then we’ll send this post to the Producers in a few weeks. Reminder: Remember Allison Holker will be having her baby next season, so, it wouldn’t do any good to include her in your list.
Ok, here is my Pro Wish List:
Females: Sharna Burgess, Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya (she cracks me up and I totally enjoyed her being back on the show for Season 21), Emma Slater, Peta Murgatroyd, and Lindsay Arnold. Alternatives: Elena Samodanova, Edyta Sliwinska, Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson
Males: Derek Hough (but, only if he wants this to happen. I’d really like to see him be a creative director instead and bring back the Macy’s Stars Of Dance numbers, etc), Gleb Savchenko (but, I also support his choice to dance on Strictly Come Dancing or DWTSRussia too for whatever he wants….just so he’s dancing for the masses is all that matters and he’s in a place where he can do his thing and grow. Sometimes I felt like he was too limited on our version), Mark Ballas, Sasha Farber, Misha Gabriel (I love new blood and I’m curious what Misha could do for DWTS), and Aljaz Skorjanec (from SCD! He’s amazing. He would be a good replacement for Tony). Alternatives: Artem Chigvintsev, Alexey Balash (from DWTS Russia),
As for the Troupe: Paul Kirkland (he’s such a creative choreographer. He’s limited in ballroom, but, he can do it if asked and he’s a force in hip hop and freestyle), Witney Carson (I don’t like her as a Pro, but, I would love her on the troupe), Nika Kljun (this girl is theatrical and a constant work of art), Sonny Fredie Pedersen (same as Nika Kljun), Hayley Erbert, Paul Karmiryan (I love his complete joy for the dance floor). I also really enjoyed some of the dancers they brought on for the finale this past season. I’m not sure on some of their names, but, they were good.
Special Note: We plan to do a Celebrity Wish List very soon as well! So stay tuned!
