Janel Parrish Writes Of Her “Most Memorable Year” Dance And More On Dancing With The Stars

Janel Parrish has written her new weekly blog at People. Below is take about her and Val’s new dance. The rumba is all about love and they are hoping to bring that to their routine.

This week, we are doing the rumba. The rumba is completely different from jazz. I had to erase everything I learned last week and start over with a new set of rules. That’s always the challenging part when you start a new dance – trying to forget the muscle memory your body has created during the last dance that you did.

I’ve taken a few dance classes in my life but never anything that prepared me for ballroom. Ballroom is so different from anything I’ve ever done, so anything I’ve ever learned in any dance class gets kind of thrown out the window when you start doing the rumba.

Val’s just an amazing coach and he pushes me to give all that I can possibly give by the end of the day. Every day when I go home, I feel like I get a little bit better.

This week is “Most Memorable Year.” The most memorable year for me is the year I moved to L.A. – it was the most challenging, scary but amazing year of my life! For me, the theme of that year was love. The rumba is a dance of love, so we’re going to bring all of that to the routine.

We’ll be dancing to Sam Smith’s cover of the Whitney Houston hit “How Will I Know.” It’s a really, really beautiful dance, so I think it’s going to look amazing. The dance is going to be slow, sensual, beautiful, romantic, passionate. It’s going to be completely different from anything we’ve brought to the dance floor so far.

Janel Parrish Writes On Her New Dance With Val Chmerkovskiy And More

Janel Parrish has written a new blog for People. She writes of last week’s dance and tough love in rehearsals with Val. She also talks on her new dance. Here is more…

We’re doing jazz this week for Movie Night and we’re performing to West Side Story. I’m having so much fun picking out costumes. We have an amazing costume designer. They create everything from scratch and it’s just been a dream. I’m the biggest girly-girl. Any time I see something with sparkles on it, I’m so excited.

I’m really looking forward to this week’s performance. Jazz is really the only dance I have a tiny bit of experience in and I remember really loving it. It’s such a fun dance. And I love Broadway; it’s where I got my start. So this week is going to be a blast for me!

Janel Parrish Writes Of Her Fox Trot Tonight For DWTS And More

Janel Parrish has written a new blog at People. She talks of last week’s performance and experience on Dancing With The Stars. She also preps us on her and Val’s new dance for tonight.

This week we’re doing the foxtrot. The dance itself is beautiful and we kind of made it a fun, young foxtrot. We made it very modern, so it’s going to be really cute.

I think the foxtrot is actually harder than the jive, because when we learned the jive we had three weeks to prepare, and now we have four days. I’m trying to learn the choreography as well as learning how to do the foxtrot, and I think that’s been the most difficult part for me. I have to be very put-together, very glamorous, very mature and elegant, so it’s completely different from last week’s jive.

The song this week is a very modern song, but we’re taking it back to masquerade times. When you hear the song, it kind of has a feel of a masquerade ball, so we’re bringing a bit of older glam to a fun, young, contemporary song. I think the mixture of the two is really beautiful!

Len Goodman, Witney Carson, And Emma Slater Talk About DWTS Season 19 And Other Media

I can’t figure out how to embed these videos (and I’m having issues playing them too), but, if you go Bing at this link, you can listen to Len Goodman talking about Julianne Hough joining the judging team. You can also listen to Witney Carson and Emma Slater talking about what it’s like to be back dancing this season here.

In other things, you can watch Val Chmerkovskiy playing basketball at the Daily Mail.

Also, Kristyn Burtt interviewed Erin Andrews about Dancing With The Stars. Below is her reaction on hearing about the Antonio Sabato Jr. rumor.

Right off the bat she asked, “What’s leaking? What’s going on? Of course, I am interested!”

She was thrilled when the name Antonio Sabato Jr. was mentioned to her. Andrews responded, “I’ve got to tell you I was a big, big General Hospital fan growing up. So I am not upset seeing that one.”

The TV personality also thought his shirt should come off early in the season. Andrews joked, “Oh week one, go week one. Let’s go!”

Lots more at She Knows. Can season 19 not come soon enough? 8O

Lastly, Mark Ballas will be releasing his new “Kicking Clouds” EP on September 16th. Below is the new cover. This will be on my must buy list. I love his new music. Read more..
