Interview With Sharna Burgess | Dancing With the Stars LIVE
Southern Family Fun: This season’s “Dancing with the Stars” was the best ever for the excellent choreography created by the professional dancers. As one of them, are you happy with the season — and is there one dance that you created that was your absolute best effort, both artistically and for its degree of difficulty?
Sharna Burgess (Dancing With The Stars): I would say I creatively did some of my favorite stuff last season with James! Our cirque Broadway inspired Quickstep, our 1940s jitterbug, our librarian and nerd foxtrot or our freestyle. To be honest the whole season was my best effort both artistically and in difficulty.
Southern Family Fun: Will the “Live Tour” audience in Pittsburgh see their favorite dances from the TV season — or new numbers, or both?
Sharna Burgess (Dancing With The Stars): There will be some of Lauries best dances from the season but the rest is a brand new absolutely incredible show! Last tour we used some of our favorite pieces of the season which was loads of fun, but this time I think our audience will be even more blown away with these never see before dances. We have gone all out on this one!
Southern Family Fun: What’s the best part of taking this show on the road — and what’s the most challenging part for you?
Sharna Burgess (Dancing With The Stars): The best part is being able to meet some of our incredible fans face to face, hear how much they love the show and how much it means to them. We have the most amazing and dedicated fans and seeing the smiles on their faces while we perform live is just so fulfilling! The most challenging part is being away from my life for 3 months. I have 2 dogs, my home, other projects that need my attention and being on the road makes it hard to be there for those things.
Southern Family Fun: How will you spend the “off season” … and will you be back for the next season of the TV series?
Sharna Burgess (Dancing With The Stars): Well my entire off season will be rehearsing for tour or actually being on tour. But I’m hoping to find a couple days of downtime before next season starts.
