There are no words to describe the amount of gratitude I am feeling right now for every single person that helped make this possible and for each of our incredible fans that came to our show tonight and supported us. I never dreamed that this all would be possible and standing in front of a sold out crowd and feeling all the love from our audience it truly surpassed all expectations. Thank you thank you again!! #bornandraisedutah #bornandraised

PureDWTS Exclusive: Lindsay Arnold Gives Us A Sneak Peek Into Her Dance Show With Witney Carson And More

Only one more day until Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson’s Born And Raised In Utah Show taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah Friday, July 15th. We were curious how Lindsay was feeling during these last few days of their final rehearsals. She tells us below. She also gives us a tiny peak into one of the fun performances and more. We can’t thank Lindsay enough for her time. If you haven’t bought tickets yet, see this link as this show sounds like a MUST SEE!!

Hi Lindsey!! Only 4 more days until your “Born And Raised in Utah” show! How are you feeling about it right now as you approach the last rehearsals?

I am feeling so excited and overwhelmed with gratitude. It has been so fun to get back in the dance studio with all of our utah dance friends and create something that is very special and meaningful to Witney and I. We are also so so stoked that our celebrity partners Alek Skarlatos, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Von Miller are joining us!

Which performances are you and the cast looking forward to the most that you’d like fans to watch out for?

There are so many performances that we are looking forward to and have created a lot of variety through out the show. One piece that I am extremely excited about is a Michael Jackson inspired dance featuring our dance coach Rick Robinson. This man has trained so many talented dancers that are in the entertainment industry; Julianne Hough, Mark Ballas, Derek Hough, along with Witney and I and has truly helped us reach our goals. We are so excited to perform with him in our show!!

We’ve heard you have a lot of special guests. Can you tell us about them a little?

We do have a lot of special guests for this show that we are so excited about! We have Super Bowl MVP Von Miller from DWTS season 22, Alek Skarlatos from DWTS season 21, Alfonso Ribeiro DWTS season 19 champion, James the Mormon (a local up and coming rap artist), Brooklyn Fullmer from SYTYCD, Hailee Payne from SYTYCD, Alexia Meyer from SYTYCD, Marcquet Hill from SYTYCD, and Jaymz Tuileva from SYTYCD. The cool thing about our SYTYCD guests is that they all grew up and trained in dancing in Utah! We want this show to showcase the incredible talent Utah has to offer and also give back to our hometown fans and support system. Without the support and love from our families, coaches, and friends from Utah we would not be where we are today.

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 9 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Well, prepare for me to be pissed off the remainder of the season. 🙂 They’ve overscored Ginger and Antonio to the point that the people who have been consistently performing all season long may not make it to the finale along with Nyle. One bad dance shouldn’t take out a man who’s been out performing both Ginger and Antonio for WEEKS now. My numbers post will likely be bitter. 🙂

ETA: AcCam says that E! said that Artem is in a trio with Ginger.

ETA2: According to People, Wanya and Lindsay have a Charleston for their Trio dance. ~ Vogue

ETA3: Apparently, Mark said on Afterbuzz that their trio partner is Alan. ~Heidi

ETA4: According to Extra, Antonio and Sharna have a Contemporary dance. Sharna also said they are allowed to do lifts this week. ~Vogue

ETA5: The rest of the dance info has been filled in via Disney ABC.

ETA5: Vogue again with a dancing order update.

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. :-)
