Dancing With the Stars 22, week 2: Latin Night

Hello, ballroom dancers! Happy Tuesday!

I’ve got a bar class in a little bit, but I’ll try and squeeze this in before then 🙂 Let’s talk about last night’s show! Latin Night was, well…interesting, I guess. The dances felt really rushed, which is too bad, but what can one expect from week 2 with so many contestants…

Another thought: Latin Night shouldn’t have to only be Latin dances. I mean, I know of plenty of songs in Spanish that are waltzes, Viennese waltzes, or ballroom tangos. Seems kinda narrowminded, if you ask me. Anyhoo…week 2 dances after the jump!

Dancing With the Stars 22: The Premiere

Hello again, dancers! Happy Tuesday!

Side note: let’s all send our love, thoughts, and prayers to Brussels. WTF is happening in the world? Hatred is not ever solved with more hatred.

Let’s talk about last night’s show! I heard the judges were really tough on, like…everyone. But I don’t listen to the judges’ critiques…’cause I can see what “They” want whether or not I do.

I liked the song from last night’s intro! And the part where they had Doug throw the football to Antonio; that was clever. Oh yeah Len’s back. I guess. This male troupe has showmanship off the charts!

My thoughts on the show after the jump 🙂

Dancing With the Stars 22: Cast Reveal

HELLO, BALLROOM DANCERS!!!

I know, I missed you too. It has literally been forEVER. I haven’t seen Matt all this time. It sucks. Like a lot. I’ve got a lot I’m dealing with.

Aaaaaanyway, let’s move onto happier things! SEASON 22!

Isn’t that a fantastic poster?! The Photoshop is real though…it looks like they photographed Keo and Wit separately and then just spliced it together.

Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars premieres this Monday night! To be quite honest, I was fully intending on not watching, as Derek is not doing this season, which I’m actually happy for. He’s got a bunch of projects in the works – most notably, he’ll be starring in Gene Kelly’s role in the Singin’ In the Rain musical on Broadway! That’s not until 2017, though. I’m not sure what it is he’s doing right now, but it must be a big deal.

So again. I wasn’t gonna watch…but KARINA IS BACK ON! And we all know Karina is one of my goddesses.

Plus, I have to take any connection to dance I can.

Yeah, I know I’m late. My bad *hides*

So here’s the cast! I think this picture is so cute and clever.
