PureDWTS DWTS Junior Season 1 – The “What To Look Forward To” Spoiler Thread **SPOILERS AHEAD**

So I was struggling with the whole spoiler situation, relative to DWTS Junior – since it’s being pre-taped, for the first time, we have spoilers that could potentially reveal the outcome of a show that’s not due to air for 2 more months…and I’m not really cool with that, since I want people to tune in and actually watch the show; plus I’m not really looking to get into any Reality Steve vs. The Bachelor-style legal brouhaha’s. So if you’re looking for who got eliminated – look elsewhere, I promise there are people on Twitter who are more than willing to share that info with you if you just know where to look. What we’re going to be sharing here is the good stuff – stuff you can look forward to watching once the show starts airing in October πŸ™‚ What we share may vary week to week, based on what we hear from sources and people fortunate enough to attend the taping…I’m leaving this a bit open-ended, until I figure out the right format for it. I’ll update as I hear more, so stay tuned. Now if you’re just looking for pro/celeb/mentor/etc. spoilers, go here; if you are looking for an explanation of how scoring/voting will work, go here.Β  Be warned – spoiler-y stuff after the jump… …Read more

Kamri doing a solo at the Radix Nationals about a month ago…does she even have bones???

Working that skirt #LikeABoss doing cha-cha at the Paris Worlds last year:

Doing an edgy contemporary trio (she’s the littlest one):

Doing this jazzy little combo:

LOVED taking class from @nikakljun

And finally, crushing some hip-hop:

Court’s thoughts: Kamri is phenomenal – she seems to thrive in any style thrown her way (she’s only been doing ballroom a year and a half, and made it all the way to the world championships in Paris!), and has the energy to tackle every style with enthusiasm.Β  My only concern is the fact that she’s the youngest pro – she JUST turned 10 in May, and while she does strike me as being very mature for her age, I just hope she is able to handle the pressure of being on a show like this.Β  I think back to myself at 10 years old, and I was in tears nearly every day just trying to do well in school – Kamri is dealing with that, plus dance, plus being on a national television show.Β  But on the flipside, she’s also the tiniest pro, and is probably going to be super-easy for a potential partner to do lifts with – that girl seems so limber and fearless.Β  If she is THIS GOOD at ten, think of how phenomenal she’ll be by the time she’s old enough to be a regular pro!

PureDWTS DWTS Junior, Season 1 – Let’s Talk About the Cast (So Far)

Because it was pointed out to me that the comments are no longer open on the original post (which is supposed to happen after a post is over a month old – a nice little feature John added to prevent trolls from stirring up trouble on old, dead posts), and the original post was getting kinda long, I figured I’d move everything to a new post so everyone can discuss the recent developments we’ve posted πŸ™‚ I’m not going to copy/paste everything from the original post, so for other details beyond the cast, go here.Β  And if you want to be completely surprised by the cast when DWTSJ airs starting in September, PROCEED NO FURTHER – SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
