    Default Dancing with the Stars - 2009

    Someone here will be watching. I saw some of it the other night, I missed some but saw:

    Lil Kim - she was cute but she'll get kicked off.
    Steve Wozniak - just the worst dancing ever.
    Belinda Carlisle - not so great
    Denise Richards - clutz
    Lawrence Taylor - not much there.
    Steve 0 - ridiculous

    They are talking about a guy named Gilles but I missed him. Carrie Ann, the judge is kind of a bitch. After a dance is over she laughs a little too much as if she can't help herself. She laughed at Cloris Leachman last season and it was just mean. Now she bows her head while laughing and doesn't raise it until she can compose herself.

    I don't think it's fair for Shawn Johnson to be in the competition. As a former competitive gymnast, I know that gymnasts are highly, HIGHLY trained in dance. You're often required to take a certain number of hours of dance a week.

    Denise is too into herself to be a good dancer. She just can't let loose. Then again some people just don't have rhythm at all and no amount of dance training helps. Her costume was ridiculous. Hello barbie!

    I agree with you that ringers shouldn't be on the show, but she's not the first. Anyone who's ever been in a boy band has taken their fair share of dance classes too - ditto for figure skaters. Making actors and CEOs compete against people who make their living involving some form of dance has always seemed kind of stupid to me.

    as the mother of a elite gymnastics coach and former gymnast none of the girls are trained in ball room... as a matter of fact at that level all the girls work out 4 to 6 hours a day and go to school when do they have time to take dance?

    You don't have to be trained in ballroom to have a strong dance background, and I didn't say Shawn is trained in ballroom. I said she is trained in dance. Any dance training or profession which involves dance gives you an unfair advantage over the other contestants.

    We had a ballet studio in our gym and all of our elite gymnasts were REQUIRED to do about 5 hours a week of dance (primarily ballet, but there was also some jazz and hip hop thrown in). It was built into our practices. Some days, we would go into an on-site ballet room that we had in our gym, and on those days we would stay later than usual to accommodate that. Other days, our ballet teacher would just come to practice while we were doing floor or beam and work with/observe us there. The reason for this is that many of the disciplines and skills of ballet and other forms of dance are transferrable to gymnastics, particularly floor and beam.

    I can almost guarantee you that the Olympic gymnasts have extensive dance training built into their regular gym hours, and I know for a fact that Bela Karolyi required his girls to do dance. Whether they're actually using a dance studio or just have a dance coach come in and work with them during practices, they ARE getting dance training, and gymnastics (like figure skating) is a profession that incorporates a great deal of dance.

    I was so pleased to see Melissa added to the cast. I thought she looked great and did very well, especially considering the short notice. I have high hopes for her as the season progresses.

    That Gilles Marini guy was really good, but I have no clue who he is. I thought there were supposed to be actual stars on Dancing with the Stars. I know there are plenty of recognizable names who want to do that show, so why do they keep choosing no-names?

    Denise Richards is such a baby, crying at rehearsals.

    Ty the cowboy guy has no rhythm whatsoever. He'll go soon.

    And the Apple guy, definitely soon to go.
