DWTS Live tour, is for the fans. Are you a fan of DWTS? Do you love beautiful dance? If so, The DWTS Live tour was made for you and for me. Even though I write about dance I have become a fan of the TV show. I try not to miss an episode and if I have to I always watch it as soon as possible on Demand or on ABC.com. This show which I attended at the Beacon theater last week is all about the pros. Did you know that Val also played the violin? Did you know that Mark Ballas plays the guitar and is a singer? These are some of the topics you will learn.
There was a question and answer segment and the pros talked about working on the show and more. In the funniest moment in the show, Kim brought up a couple people from the audience and one of the people was a fan who wore a silver metal suit with a purple jeweled top. He could really move it. Move it. Very funny. Also Mark Ballas met a woman who wanted to see the show in a diner that morning but couldn’t get tickets and he got them a pair and backstage access. He even told us all about it and came into the theater and took a selfie with them. Very cute. I must admit I wished I had been at that diner as I wanted to go backstage and interview Mark, Val, Sasha, Emma and Witney and Alfonso.
Let’s talk about the beautiful dance. Val and Brittany Cherry, did a Paso that stole the show. It was absolute perfection. I didn’t want that dance to end and I was hoping they would also do a tango, my favorite ballroom dance. I don’t know who Brittany Cherry is but she and Val were a vision. Kym Johnson talked about being a judge in the Australia version of DWTS and did a number with Sasha and Keo and it was also beautiful to watch.
Emma Slater and Sasha Farber did a very exciting free for all with major flip in the air action. Pretty outstanding. Also, Alfonso and Witney did the Carlson dance and it was as cute as ever. The Dancing With The Stars Live tour was a night I will always cherish as someone who loves dance and as a fan of DWTS. I also hope to interview the cast in person and hope they will do this tour every year.
