Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Disney Week!

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Disney Week!



It’s DISNEY week!!!  Loved the opening # it was so cute!


Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy


Jazz-“Steamboat Willie” from “Steamboat Willie”

Victoria’s personality totally matches Disney!  First of all how cute were their costumes.  I love seeing Val during week’s like this!  I thought the dance was so creative and fun.  Victoria is making big strides in all she is able to do on the show.  The performance in my opinion was light, fun, flawless and just the perfect way to kick off Disney Week!


Vanessa Lachey & Maks Chmerkovskiy


Waltz-“Un Jour Mon Price Viendra” from “Snow White”

Their package was too funny.   I thought their dance was full of elegance and grace tonight.  Vanessa is a stunning dancer and continues to grow each week.  It was beautifully choreographed by Maks.   It was truly beautiful tonight and they should be proud of their performance.


Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas


Foxtrot-“When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio”

I thought they had a beautiful Foxtrot!  Loved Mickey playing the piano!  Nice touch!  There was a lot of great content in the in the dance and it was beautifully performed.   I wasn’t surprised at all that Len loved it.


Nick Lachey & Peta Murgatroyd


Quickstep-“The Bare Necessities” from “The Jungle Book”

Their package was absolutely precious and hilarious.  I really loved their dance tonight.  I really have not understood why Nick’s scores have been what they are this season.  I think he is exactly what this show should be about, learning how to dance, growing week after week.  He and Peta have always had a fun partnership and I really thought they absolutely nailed it tonight.  What a great job!  I thought it was a lot of fun and you could tell they were having a great time!  Again he was underscored by Carrie Ann and Bruno.  I just don’t get it night after night he’s underscored.


Drew Scott & Emma Slater


Viennese Waltz-“Rainbow Connection” from “The Muppet Movie”

Drew is another one that has made great strides this season.  He is so much more in control and graceful.  I really enjoyed their dance, he’s become a true leading man.  It was light, creative and beautifully fit the theme.  That was really very good!  Great job!


Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko


Rumba-“Kiss the Girl” from “The Little Mermaid”

I am loving these packages this week.  That is an amazing weight loss Sasha, you go girl!  I really enjoyed their dance.  It was fun, in character, had a lot of great Rumba content and was as sexy as you can be on Disney night.   Gleb did a beautiful job of creating the dance.  They are a great partnership and it’s obvious how much they truly are friends.  I thought they deserved higher scores again this week.


Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke


Quickstep-“I Just Can’t Wait to be King” from “The Lion King”

Their dance was fun, creative and executed well.  They really incorporated the troupe and fellow dancers.   Terrell is growing each week.  Their scores to me were over-scored.


Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson


Argentine Tango-“Angelica” from “Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides”

I think Frankie pulled off sexy really well.  I thought their dance had intensity, and lot of fun content and I really loved it!  Witney did another great job in putting together a wonderful performance.  Frankie is really continues to be one to watch! They totally deserved the 2 10’s that was great!


Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold


Foxtrot-“You’re Welcome” from “Moana”

Another fantastic and flawless performance by Jordan and Lindsay.  It was a lot of fun to watch and Lindsay is truly doing a phenomenal job creating these masterpiece dances this season.  Jordan is a natural and his personality just shines in his dances.


Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev


Jazz-“Remember Me” from Disney-Pixar’s upcoming movie “Coco”

Their package had me laughing too.  Artem really did a fabulous job of putting together this performance.  It was light, fun, hit all the cultural marks and it was filled with a ton of fun high energy.  I loved every moment of their dance!  Bravo!!!  Finally good scores for this team!  Very well deserved!

Fourth to go home this season:   Gleb & Sasha

This is another ridiculous bottom 2 this season. What is going on seriously!  As a viewer since Season 1 this is the most messed up and wrong elimination order I have ever seen on the show.  I really just don’t get it.

As I expected this season is packed with talent and great personalities.  Voting will be even more important than usual to keep your favorites coming back week after week!

The tour dates and cast was announced!!!  Excited for a good long tour this winter!!!  For more info and more VIP & regular tickets go to:

VIP Experience Blog

Dancing with the Stars

As I noted in my Aerosmith blog, I do multiple VIPs a year. And as that same blog showed, multiple at times for groups as well. I’ve had the pleasure of being a VIP for the last three Dancing with the Stars tours. From the first tour I participated in the VIP to this year’s tour I must say: It’s like night and day!  They have improved them tremendously for this year’s Dance All Night Tour.

Emma Slater, Kym Johnson, Val ChmerkovskiyEntering the VIP: In 2014 the experience was Okay, it was great to meet the dancers, and you got a group picture and then could do a selfie with the top package. I opted for a selfie with Val because he has always been one of my favorites since he first appeared on the show. You could also get a photo holding the mirror ball trophy. It was a very rushed experience overall and there was no party included. All the dancers were very kind and welcoming.     Picture3

Picture1Summer 2015 I did VIP again and it was a pretty similar experience as the prior one.

Now this year they put together a stellar VIP Program. As with the past you had various different levels which basically the differences were the seat location at the show and what you received in the VIP Gift Bag. I chose the front row option for all of the shows I attended so I received the signed tour program, tote bag and mug.

Picture4Now on to the good stuff! This time they had a pre-party so they had a video playing that was put together by the dancers about dance styles, how they prepare for tour, what happens backstage etc. In addition to the photo with four of the pros/celebrity they had two of the dance troupe/company dancers that would mingle at the party and stand at the green screen and take additional photos with those in attendance. This was great because it allowed you to meet the dancers and actually have some conversations and get to know them a bit. The value they added to their VIP this year did not go unnoticed. They also had one of the best VIP Staff members from VIP Nation on the tour: Kristin McLeod. She was so friendly at every interaction, she had photos posted in almost all cases within 24 hours, she truly understands what VIP Package purchasers want and really hit it out of the park every show.Picture5

The experience with the Pro’s/Celebrity at the photo op is always great, they are all so sweet, welcoming, engaging and you can truly tell they enjoy meeting fans of the show. Way to go DWTS Tour and VIP Nation for the Dance All Night Tour VIP! Perfect 10!

Final Verdict: Do I recommend the Dancing with the Stars VIP, 110% yes with what they included for this year’s tour, they did a huge improvement and the value they added is exactly what they needed to do!

DWTS Dance All Night TourWord is the Dancing with the Stars tour will be taking this summer off, but they will be back in the winter. I hope they keep the great package they did this time for the next tour.

For my followers that love DWTS I will be covering the Maks and Val tour this summer, they have one of the best VIP Pkgs I have ever seen offered by ANY artist on their tour. If you don’t have tickets yet, you can get them at: All Night Tour
