Well, it is now season 12! Have you never watched Dancing With The Stars? Don’t worry..STAR 100.7 will get you up to date quickly so you can vote on and let our Hines Ward WIN that Mirror Ball Trophy!
Well, like I said earlier..we are in season 12 already! What is DWTS? It started out as a sort of Type B/C lister competition where semi- no name famous actors/athletes/singers would be paired up with famous professional dancers. It has become HUGE and maybe the stars aren’t as big as Brad Pitt, but these stars were big in THEIR day and are now making huge comebacks, thanks in part to the ABC show.
It was based off a BBC version and it is a huge success now in the U.S. and Canada where it airs. Hosts now are Tom Bergeron (hosts Funniest Family Videos) and former season 6 winner Brooke Burke who is an author and actress.
There are even now cardio/DVD dance workout tapes you can buy to exercise and learn the dances the dancers teach the stars!
I have been a fan since season one. I’ve never missed a season. I’m a dancer and I really enjoy the show. People tell me to watch “So You Think You Can Dance” and I can’t do it. DWTS brings people with minimal if ANY dance experience together and after so many weeks makes them dancing stars! I love watching the transformation.
People say that a lot of the past winners had some dance training. Sometimes, that is TRUE. They feel it is an unfair advantage for the other competitors. But, you don’t realize that ballroom dancing and dances are so completely different than any type of dancing you may have done.
I know! I was the People’s Choice winner with a perfect score in 2010 for the local verson of Dancing With The Pittsburgh stars! It was hard and I’ve danced my whole life!
We have to cheer on Hines Ward and make our Pittsburgh star win that Mirror ball trophy. Take a look at the past winners and as you read this look at how many of them are ATHLETES! This makes Hines’ chance so much more easy to grasp in my opinion. Athletes are extremely limber and very very flexible. This could be Hines’ big chance!
