Welcome, Dancing With The Stars/blog fans! I have a little more news and a few reminders for you.

“Little Big Shots”:  A recent episode of “Little Big Shots,” hosted by Steve Harvey, featured a couple of juvenile ballroom-dance experts from Italy who have danced together for some years. And they’re not even 10 years old! The girl’s 8 and the boy’s 9. Fantastic and so cute! You may want to find a replay.

New EP:  Mark your calendar for June 26! That’s when the new EP by Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas and his wife BC Jean (Alexander Jean) will hit shelves and air! Also, contact your local entertainment venues for tickets if you want to see them in concert with R5!

“World of Dance”:  If you love dance in many different forms, you’ll LOVE this show. Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough is a judge alongside WoD producer Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo. 10 p.m., on NBC, right after “America’s Got Talent.”


Wedding  Bells:

This summer:

(1) Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy on July 8.

(2) Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich, the center pro hockey man for Canada’s Washington Capitals, on July 8.

(3) Erin Andrews and NHL free agent Jarret Stoll (date undisclosed).

(4) Carrie Ann Inaba and actor Robb Derringer.

Within the next 12 months?:  Emma Slater and Sasha Farber may wait until next year; Emma said that because so many others are tying the knot this summer, she wants to wait and stand out.


“Health Magazine”:  Dancing with the Stars Co-Host Erin Andrews is on the cover of the July/August 2017 issue, looking extremely fit and happy. No wonder! The 39-year-old has come out on the bright side of cervical cancer, she’s marrying the love of her life this summer, and she may be able to have a baby, after all, because she froze some of her eggs before receiving her cancer diagnosis last year. Go, Erin!


David Ross:  Don’t forget David’s book, which landed a month ago: “Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages.” Available on Amazon.com and probably other large mainstream sources.

Today’s ballroom pros have so many advantages over what my father and other pros had in the 1930s/40s: many more opportunities, easy/fast networking, faster travel, etc. You can learn much more while enjoying the biography I wrote, “Dancing in the Stars—Carroll Webster, International Dance Luminary of Vaudeville & Hollywood” (Createspace.com). This easy read in larger type is a compelling and inspirational story of dance, romance, mystery, history, and entertainment. I would be honored for you to read and comment on it.
