Here at KRL we like to point the spotlight on some of the incredible talent we have in the Valley. One way is by profiling local theatre actors and directors. This month we are profiling one of the younger actors shining on Fresno stages, Sarah Waxman, whom you may have seen this summer in A Chorus Line.

I have been a fan of the movie Singin’ In The Rain starring Gene Kelly forever, and had the pleasure of seeing a touring company perform the stage version at the Saroyan about 20 years ago. So I was excited when I heard that they’d be doing it this season at Roger Rocka’s, and I have to say that the tap dancing was amazing! That alone is a reason to hurry on over and see this show!

Sentiments ran high this week on Dancing With the Stars, as the dances revolved around each celebrity’s most memorable year. The stars told tales of their times of inspiration, loss, adversity and triumph. Some of the stars got so choked up that they had trouble answering hostess Brooke’s questions in the Celebriquarium! By the end of the program, feelings were laid bare, there were only 5 points between the high and low scores, and viewers were emotionally invested in Season 14. Cranky head judge Len Goodman proclaimed the entire night “Awesome!”

Welcome to Week 2 of Season 14! Given that all the dancers last week were either good dancers or good sports or both, I’m particularly happy this is a season that didn’t have a week 1 elimination. I’m looking forward to seeing everybody dance again. So let’s just get straight to the dances, shall we?

Kevin Costner danced with wolves. On television, there’s dancing with the stars. I danced with dogs at nursing homes, hospitals and special needs schools. Hollywood and ABC never called.

Actress Kirstie Alley, Disney star Chelsea Kane, and NFL player Hines Ward are all the celebrities left on this season of Dancing with the Stars. For their final Monday show, the judges get to pick their first dance and mentor the celebrities; after that, it’s the infamous freestyle dance round.

There’s just four celebs left now and inter-couple tensions are on the boil. For this episode, the workload is high. It’s the semi-finals, which means two new routines and then a winner-take-all cha-cha for 15 bonus points. Prior to each number, we’re treated some behind-the-scenes footage that’s cut to show the perilous physical and mental edge that Dancing With the Stars contestants must walk if they hope to cut the mustard.

We are down to five couples in Season 12 Week 8 of Dancing With The Stars and this week saw our couples do two dances. One rehearsed and then an Instant Dance where they learn the music and then go and rehearse while the other couples are dancing. That’s a lot of pressure, but at this stage in the game they must be pretty used to it.

It’s Guilty Pleasures Night on Dancing with the Stars, despite the fact that just watching DWTS IS the guilty pleasure. Couples dance to music considered “guilty pleasures”. Hanson is guest house-band this week, and they all look strangely overgrown, but then it has been a Bieber lifetime since they’ve been on the airwaves.
