When I found out a live taping of Dancing With The Stars was on the agenda for my trip to LA for the Big Hero 6 Premiere and ABC TV Event I may have let out an audible shriek. Dancing With The Stars people. Dancing With The Stars!
While posing for pictures on stage, what I really wanted to do was break out into a Samba or perhaps a Jive, but I kept it cool posing for pictures and reminding myself to soak it all in.
Despite the requirements, it was a ton of fun. Defiantly a bucket list item checked off. In fact, I even made it on TV behind Alfonso Ribeiro! If you squint, you can see me in the blue beam of light – look for my shimmering dress, I have my arm down, hand resting on the wall. That’s me! LOL.
The stars were there for one reason – to hang out with us. Not a rushed, hi and bye, they sat and talked to us while we all relived their evening’s performance. So. Much. Fun!
The gracious Lea Thompson was perfectly lovely inviting groups of us to join her at her table for a bit. (I swear, she has some Back to the Future magic up her sleeve because she hasn’t aged a day!)
I know there are a lot of pictures in this post, but I took even more. I wanted to make sure I captured every moment I could of this very special evening.
Watch Dancing With The Stars Monday nights on ABC at 8 pm EST.
Tune in Mondays at 8/7c on ABC and vote for your favorites! Next week, on November 25 and 25, catch the two-night finale as we find out who is the Mirrorball Champion of Season 19! Follow @DancingABC for show news and more.
Oh, and if Dancing With The Stars ever decides to showcase a mom blogger on the show, I am more than happy to put on my dancing shoes. Just throwing that out there!
