Subject: Happy Easter! Watch our Tango this week.
To: undisclosed recipients
I hope the Easter Bunny was kind to everyone and that you had a fabulous weekend and Spring Break!
Chris and I have been hard at work perfecting our Tango for Guilty Pleasures week and I think you’ll love what we’ve done. We were busy with interviews and commitments but we spent many hours practicing as well. You can catch us on Ellen on Monday, I always love being on her show!
I got to catch up with Mike Catherwood last week too as I was a guest on his show with Dr Drew, Loveline. I think his skills are definitely as a host rather than a dancer!
Thank you all for keeping us alive each week and don’t forget to vote!
To vote for Chris and me, call 800-868-3409 or log on to http://www.abc.com. You are allowed to vote multiple times equal to the number of celebrities on the show, 7 this week. Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) and online polls will open at the top of each performance show. Phone and text lines will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show. Online voting will remain open until 11:00am (Eastern Time)/8:00am (Pacific Time) on the day of the results show.
We all had a wonderful time “for a good cause” last December 20, 2009. I arrived in Chicagoland to a snowy wonderland the next day, tired and happy!
The victims of the devastating typhoons in the Philippines in September and October of 2009 were the “focus” of our hearts and souls in preparing and implementing the necessary tasks and responsibilities for this fundraiser. Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas, among the many entertainers who wowed all of us that night (and our checkbooks!), truly understand the meaning of Christmas. “Dancing with the Stars” champions together in the same dance studio, wow!
I will be updating this posting with a photo slideshow in the coming weeks. I found some youtube videos that were taken by some of the guests during the fundraiser. We were all digitally-happy! In the meantime, Happy Holidays!
Here is the sample of the dancing that Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas performed for the fundraiser’s guests, Cheryl’s Argentinian Tango and Mark’s Cha Cha that I was able to document.
In the black and red Bad Romance Costumes, Jeremy Babagay, Jaymee Racho, Stephanie McShurley, and Michelle Bird dancing with Paju Munro as the Lady GaGa. Thank you to AHILTON for posting this youtube video.
Another youtube video, contributed by mrtonysmith, shows another angle of the P.Y.T. dance performed by Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas.
From Cheryl Burke Dance Studio’s youtube channel. This video was taken from the opposite side of the studio (from where I was).
I also created another video (which is not available on Youtube) that I posted in Facebook, showing some of the work that Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas did for the fundraiser. There will be another video that will show my documentation of the total event.
Here is the video invitation.
