Overview

Dancing with the Stars by Robert Grayson

What would happen if a group of actors, singers, athletes, commentators, even entrepreneurs-all accomplished in their fields-left their comfort zones and tried to master the art of competitive ballroom dancing? Could they do it? Who would be left standing? With those questions as its premise, Dancing with the Stars has captivated fans throughout the United States-and around the world-since the series debuted in 2005.

Whirling around DWTS dance floor, with the help of talented professional dancers, calls for determination, concentration, commitment, and hours of grueling practice. Then comes the hard part: Each week the celebrities and their professional dance partners perform a dance on live television in glittering costumes before three top-notch judges, all of whom were once professional ballroom dancers themselves. And if they are good enough, the celebrities get another chance to do it all over again the next week. This book provides an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the sweat, tears, frustration, aches, and pains it takes to win a championship on the show.
