Dancing With The Stars Sasha Farber Never Expected To Feel Like A Rock Star – New DWTS Live Tour Interview

Sasha Farber was interviewed by PennLive.com. He talks of why everyone should see the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. He also never expected to feel like a “rock star”. So cute. Read on….

“This is the perfect things for the fans in between the seasons,” Farber said of the live performance. “And if it wasn’t for the fans, this show wouldn’t be happening. We get to interact with the fans and bring them up on stage and it’s really, really rewarding for us.”

“The appreciation and support you get is so amazing,” he continued. “Before the show, you can even hear them screaming and stomping.

“You really do feel like you’re a rock star. Being a ballroom dancer, you would never expect that.”

The show features numerous dance numbers, including an all-gentleman dance that Farber declared was his favorite (although he wouldn’t give any more details). Rumer Willis, last season’s winner, will also be dancing and singing.

“This show is designed and built for fans,” Farber said. “They’re going to walk in and walk out dancing.”

“Just the energy we all create amongst each other is really something people will love to watch,” Farber added later. “We take some of the fan favorites that we’ve had in the show and tweaked them to make sure they’re working for the stage.”

The show is also a chance to see the pros at their best. “We’re not dancing with a celebrity here, we’re doing what we love to do,” Farber said.

Keo Motsepe Chats On Being A Pro And Why The New DWTS Tour Is Special – New Interview

Keo Motsepe talked with the Daily Record about being a pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars. He also chats new Dancing With The Stars Tour and what makes it special. Read on….

We’re normal people,” says Motsepe, a South Africa native who joined the program in its 19th season in 2014. “We go to restaurants. We go to stores.”

But Motsepe admits that, on the dance floor, he and the others feel truly at home. “I’m a creative person,” he says. “When there are so many people around you being creative, you work hard and do your best.”

Motsepe will have the chance to show what he can do before a live audience. He is one of 10 professionals participating in “Dancing with the Stars” Live. The Perfect Ten Tour will stop at the Mayo Performance Arts Center on June 16 and 17.

The event will be hosted by hosted by Melissa Rycroft, who won the 15th season (dubbed “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars”) of the program. VIP tickets for the program include a meet-and-greet session with dancers.

Many of the routines feature the professionals (who also include Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Witney Carson, and Sasha Farber) pairing up for recreations of some of “DWTS” routines. Other segments of the program offer original choreographed works.

The absence of the “Stars” (Alfonso Ribeiro, Rumer Willis, and the like) may seem a drawback. But Motsepe believes that audiences are attracted more to the skill of the dancers more than to any name recognition.

“The audience likes to see what the professionals can do,” he says. “We’re in tune with each other in a special way.”

For his part, Motsepe enjoys the live aspect of the performance. “It takes me back to what I do best,” he says. “I got into this as a competition.”

Expect A Smaller, More Intimate Feel To The DWTS Live Tour – New Melissa Rycroft Interview, Watch ET Tonight

US Weekly interviewed Melissa Rycroft about the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. Not only is she hosting, but, she is also dancing. She also gives a few hints of what to expect of her performances, costumes, and the show. Read on….

Rycroft won’t just be hosting, either. The former Bachelor contestant teased that she’ll be wearing many hats – or jazz shoes – during the tour. “I will be dancing. Not sure if I’m doing partner dances or a couple of group dances, but I’m doing at least three numbers as well as hosting,” she said.

“Now instead of being anxious I’m looking forward to it! It’s going to be chaos!” she joked. “Living like a rockstar on a bus? I mean, it’s pretty cool.”

The most exciting part of the Dancing With the Stars: Live! Tour for Rycroft is seeing all of the show’s fans.

“I’m looking forward to the Q&A’s and the meet and greets and connecting with the audience – it’s the fans who really keep this tour going,” she said. “I think it’s going to be fun to see them interact with everyone!”

Despite the glitzy costumes and big dance numbers, Rycroft said to expect a smaller, more intimate feel for the performances.

“This [tour] brings the live show to you and makes it more personal,” she explained. “It’s a really cool experience.”
