Overview

Dancing with the "Quotes"
1000 Humorous TV Dance Quotations

A Comical Collection of Humorous Quotations on TV Dance Shows…from 'Dancing With The Stars' to 'So You Think You Can Dance'

"Dancing With The Stars…a contest that is as much about redemption as it is about the Rumba."
Alessandra Stanley in The New York Times (2007)

"Doing a show like Dancing With The Stars is pretty much the most famous you can get as a dancer unless you're Baryshnikov or something."
Julianne Hough (2008)

"DWTS is a shimmery, glittery, fraught-with-injuries 10-week competition between dance pairs—one pro and one celebrity—joined in a televised matrimony of sorts."
April MacIntyre on MonstersAndCritics.com (2009)

As the title suggests, this fun-packed book focuses on the first nine seasons of Dancing With The Stars. Inspired by the hit US TV show, this book delivers enough comical content to fill the most discerning judge's dance card.

On Clyde Drexler's Rumba — "Oh my God. Clyde, I know you're a gentleman…But this was so polite—it was like a Rumba under an anesthetic."
Bruno Tonioli on DWTS (2007)

It reveals an amusing aspect of the show through the words of celebrity and professional dancers, judges, hosts, fans and the media.

"I didn't know there would be this much dancing!"
Penn Jillette on DWTS (2008)

By is very nature of focusing on TV dance shows in the 20th century, the majority of the quotations contained in this book come from the last ten years. This ultra-contemporary content, in terms of dance history, makes this book as fresh and as vibrant as the latest street dance craze.

As well DWTS, this book also features quotations about other U.S. dance shows from 'American Bandstand' to 'So You Think You Can Dance'…

"The Pony, the Jitterbug, the Twist, the Chalypso (a Cha-Cha, Calypso combination)—they danced them all at Bandstand. They even—gasp!—slow-danced."
The Hollywood Reporter (2002)

"The super-progressive SYTYCD makes DWTS look like a trip to the retirement home."
Kyle Anderson on MTV.com (2009)

Just as the DWTS mantle has covered the globe like a peripatetic Paso cape, this book matches the international reach of dance on TV. Dancing with the Quotes also includes content from TV series around the world. These include DWTS' quick-step-mother Strictly Come Dancing from the U.K. and DWTS spin-offs from Australia and New Zealand.

On Ian Meldrum's Cha-Cha-Cha — "Not many Cha-Chas died in the making of that Cha-Cha routine."
Todd McKenney on DWTS AUS (2006)

Although these international names may not be as familiar to U.S. readers as their 'homegrown' stars; like dance itself, the humor of the quotes and quips transcends all borders.

"That's pro-celebrity Ballroom for you. It damn near strips a man naked, bar the sequins."
Giles Smith in The London Times (2006)

As such, Dancing with the Quotes celebrates in frivolous fashion the global glitterball of glamour, glitz and garish gaucheness that has always pervaded the TV dance world.

"Welcome to the world of teeth and tans. We certainly embrace the retro camp quality. Where else can you Vienna Waltz to a Sonny and Cher song?"
Tom Bergeron on DWTS (2005)

The diverse and sometimes obscure content entertainingly covers everything from the Len GOODman, the LamBADa and the JitterbUGLY.

On Bill Ray Cyrus' Waltz — "The trouble was there was only one recognizable step: the Shadow Botafogos…and that's a Samba step!"
Len Goodman on DWTS (2007)

On Mya and Dmitry Chaplin's Lambada — "Though last week's rumba was a little busy for my taste, their lambada was just right: hot and spicy with a side of raunch dressing."
Allyssa Lee in The Los Angeles Times (2009)

On Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson's railroad-inspired Jitterbug — "A little like looking at a steam train trying to keep up with a speeding bullet train."
Bruno Tonioli on Dancing With The Stars (2009)
