Reports are, this fabulous Production will be in Hawai’i! Get ready for some great dancing and music !
for someone who has been a movement participant since forever, an athlete and sports enthusiast along with some dance training, it was a treat to find a show that focused on a genre of dance that was popular but seemingly underground unless you knew where to go, hot, but not so much here in the states unless you knew where to go, suddenly on national TV. I have followed, been a fan, been frustrated with dwts, dumped it, tuned in again and had some not so good things to say, but dwts season18 2014 was beyond fun to watch. A show the whole family can watch with a lot of conversation and as some of the contestants&pros shed lbs., it makes you want to move a bit more. Yes, we viewers have a whole lot of attitude about some dwts stuff, but I think that is definitely a part of the producers agenda baked in …and viewers never cease to disappoint. We get locked in, over react or join up to try and make our votes count!… geez, I mean come on and this year was no different. I am and have been a Maks fan even before melb. and when they did not win I stopped watching until Season16. There not only were more willing people of colour participating, the youngest competitor ever seemingly brought dwts back and younger viewers tuned in, ok, the end result was awful and I stopped tuning in on the regular until rumors of maks being on the show again kept popping up. The Maks and Meryl partnership was/is amazing, wonderfully, seemingly personal and fun. As we all watched their friendship progress we saw what happens when connections on the dance floor are made, seem raw, real, effect affect the masses that put smiles, tears and love in the hearts of those who love dance, contests and maybe some drama made us vote.
Loved meryl and maks together, hope their future …is continued and look forward to seeing future dance project(sss) and or other tv stuff like the amazing race for instance … a girl can hope.
I have to admit that shows prior to melb were not that exciting, maybe because so few people of colour were participating not to mention the fact that the pros were great but few were people of colour let alone not originally from the US and those things became less important once the dances began.
Anyway, Congrats to Meryl & Maks, the 2014 dwts winners! so deserved!
Seattle, WA 5th Avenue Theatre Aug 17th (Sharna Burgess, Val Chmerkovskiy, Maks Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff) Hoping Meryl Davis will also be included in the future !
Get out and dance! Seattle
