4 DAYS AWAY… FROM SWAY!
I bet you’re wondering what took so long. Well…we’ve been living, breathing, and literally dreaming of SWAY for the last few weeks.
The last few weeks have been a bit tough… for everyone. The DWM team on the east coast has been working non-stop to finalize all the choreography and formations without having a third of the cast present. In addition to SWAY, most of you know that we had our Fall Classic, Holiday Gala, and showcases in each studio. So if we’re not rehearsing for SWAY, we’re either preparing for another event or managing our daily operations. Basically, everyone has been working overtime the last month.
Our west coast team doesn’t have it easy either, besides SWAY they have have a few other shows to perform in as well. They’ve been learning choreography through video, and because they only arrive on Sunday, December 13, we have a total of 3 days to integrate them into the proper formations, coordinate all the styling and details, and finalize costuming.
If you know Dance With Me, you already know that we don’t make things easy on ourselves. But that’s the only way to achieve success, so that’s the way we’re going to do it.
But we LOVE doing it! Seeing your faces light up at the shows or on our dance floor is priceless, and worth every second of hard work and sacrifice!
Now, enough about us and let’s focus on what you are about to see in the sixth episode of “The Making of SWAY 2.0”!
This episode features some of your favorite SWAY cast members…Maks & Meryl, and Zendaya & Val! Remember team #Maksyl and #Valdaya? Yeah they’re back!
We check in at Dance With Me Sherman Oaks to find Zendaya and Val squeezing out every minute they can to practice their SWAY choreography. Team “Valdaya” is getting ready to make its comeback on December 21 with some new moves! I almost want to shed a tear of joy every time I see them together.
Meryl visited Dance With Me SoHo in New York recently to meet up with Maks and practice their SWAY routines. I happened to stroll in and let me tell you… seeing Maks and Meryl dance again is a thrill for the eye. First of all, Meryl is so talented that it’s hard to believe she is not a trained ballroom dancer. Sure she learned ice dancing, but it’s not the same as dancing on high heels. Then you look at their chemistry… We all saw it onDancing With the Stars, but to witness it in person is truly heartwarming.
As a bonus: we also show you some exclusive clips from Val and Janel’s visit to Good Morning America, for the Dancing With the Stars official afterparty…
