Pure Exclusive: Sharna Burgess Talks On 2014 Version Of DWTS, BWAT With Gleb Savchenko, And Lots More

What a joy it was to interview our beautiful Miss Sharna again!! After seeing her and Gleb Savchenko in “Ballroom With A Twist” in Cheyenne, Wyoming, I had so many questions. What’s fun is…she and Gleb put an amazing, show-stopping dance number to “Fever” together only several hours before the show. Let’s hope they will perform it again on Dancing With The Stars as it literally took my breath away and I know it would take yours away as well.

Also, Sharna catches up on all of her projects that happened in the off season of Dancing With The Stars! She and her boyfriend and dancer Paul Kirkland spent Christmas together and they also helped to choreograph two dances for “Strictly Come Dancing”. Not only that, but, they also put a dance piece together for a sports charity called “Sports Relief” with 4 incredible paralympians. Sharna also recently danced in Holland America’s Dancing With The Stars At Sea Cruise. She sent us some incredible photos and pictures highlighting everything as you will soon see.

Lastly, Sharna also gives some thoughts on the new season of Dancing With The Stars and how it will be the “2014 Version”. We think you might find her thoughts interesting.

So, without further ado, below is Sharna Burgess! We thank her so much for her time again and let’s hope we see her and Gleb on the new season of Dancing With The Stars.xxx

It is so great to visit with you again, Sharna. And first, omg,…can I just say, you and Gleb took my breath away at the Cheyenne, WY Ballroom With A Twist Shows Feb. 1st! So, what did you think of Cheyenne and the Rocky Mountains? Did you like the SNOW? I hope you will come back to the Rocky Mountain region again one day again.

Hi Vogue!!! Thank you so much for your beautiful review AND amazing photos!! that certainly means a lot to both Gleb and I. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see very much of Cheyenne, I flew in late the night before the show and super early the morning after, but I have to say that I loved the snow. Being Australian I have never really seen snow all that often, and what little snow we do have in Australia is really icy and hard, being in Cheyenne I truly understood what people mean when they say powder!! Its just so beautiful and fun to play in!! Of course we know mother nature can sometimes be cruel turn that beautiful snow into a menace, and my heart goes out to all of you who have been suffering with blizzards and painfully cold weather this season. I am truly grateful for every single person in the audience that braved the cold to come out and see us perform, Cheyenne was such an AMAZING audience and I had so much fun up on that stage! I feel like everyone’s troubles got left at the door and we all just had a wonderful evening. Its an honor for me to know that I was a part of that. I also hope that I make it back there again soon :)

What kind of rehearsal process did you go through in getting ready for Ballroom With A Twist? I thought you and Gleb were only doing 2 dances. So, I was so happy and pleasantly surprised when you did more! They were just breathtaking as well as your costumes. You and Gleb were in an element of your own. I have to say (and I’ve heard this from other fans at PureDWTS too) that you two make one of the most beautiful pro pairings on the show. It’s true. There is a magnetism and chemistry there. Plus, you are both so funny too with the way you would tease one another.

Oh thank you!!! I absolutely love dancing with Gleb, not only is he the sweetest most humble guy on the planet, he is a fantastic partner and Read more..

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 .

New Wilmington, Delaware Ballroom With A Twist Review, DWTS Pros “Superb”

If you head to the Broad Street Review, you can read a fun review up of the “Ballroom With A Twist” show that took place in Wilmington, Delaware. Below is a take about how superb the performances were…

If you enjoy the TV series Dancing With the Stars, as I do, you’d be more than pleased with its transmutation to the live stage. This dance production is touring the country with its combination of ballroom, jazz, hip hop, and Latin choreography.

The headliners are four of the most charismatic (and popular) regulars from Dancing With the Stars — Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke, Tony Dovolani, and Peta Murgatroyd. Their performances were superb and the audience experienced the frisson of seeing real people instead of a flat screen.

These headliners established a casual rapport with the audience. They fielded questions with more candor than I expected, naming their favorite celebrity partners and their most unpleasant ones. As fine as any of the celebrities have been, they said, “they’re never going to be as good as our fellow professional dancers on this tour.” They also went into the audience and brought random civilians onto the stage for brief hoofing turns.

MORE at Broad Street Review. You can also read several fan blogs at Pure Derek Hough that are touching to say the least. Also, if you haven’t read my review of the Cheyenne, Wyoming show with Gleb Savchenko and Sharna Burgess, you can read and see pics at this link. If you get a chance to see this show, be sure you do!! I can’t stop raving about it. Here’s to the shows now in Colorado, Florida, and North and South Dakota next!!!

Exclusive: The Fire, Intensity, Passion, And Charisma Of Sharna Burgess And Gleb Savchenko In Ballroom With A Twist

Dreams came true last night in Cheyenne, Wyoming! heartssmiley As you know from a previous post, two of my most favorite pros from Dancing With The Stars, Gleb Savchenko and Sharna Burgess, took to the stage for “Ballroom With A Twist”. When I first heard they were coming, I knew this was a show I couldn’t miss. What’s more and being my Dad loves Dancing With The Stars as much as we do and the fact it is his 79th birthday in a few days, I knew this would make the perfect birthday gift too!! Well, that it was!! Gleb and Sharna were brilliant and in a realm of their own every time they stepped foot on stage. If you think they are magical, charming, warm, passionate, and beautiful people on Dancing With The Stars (on the inside and out), then you should see them both in person?!! It’s almost as if they glow in this special way I can’t explain. And when they danced, they danced with so much fire, emotion, passion, and intensity.

I was also taken back by Gleb and Sharna’s chemistry and charisma together in just entertaining the crowd when they weren’t dancing. Sharna would tease Gleb and give him a lot of sass at times while Gleb played innocent. They were so funny in all the right places. For instance, during a question and answer session, a little boy asked why Gleb had his pajamas on (during the contemporary dance). Sharna knew that was a good question right when she heard it and then looked at Gleb and demanded an answer. Then Gleb fell straight to the floor saying something to the effect that he was so tired from travelling all the way from Australia the day before that he left his pj’s on!! lol It was funny and adorable!! I also thought of Gleb’s daughter Olivia immediately and how good he must be with her.

Can you tell Sharna gave Gleb some sass at times? lol

Another fun time in the night is when Gleb and Sharna asked members of the audience to come up and dance with them. The audience was shy and no one raised their hand. Well, Sharna and Gleb wouldn’t have it. They then Read more..
