This month, I’m happy to welcome Breast Cancer Ballroom Dancer! As you might guess from the name of her blog, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, but never stopped ballroom dancing. Her determination and perseverance are inspiring! Without further ado…
It’s that time again! Dancing with the Stars just announced the cast for Season 24. In case you missed it, here’s the breakdown. Leave a comment on who you think will win, be the first to go, or who you think will surprise us all. A big thank you to Tracy Wilkins, who was kind enough to contribute this article.
There are myriad of dance competitions currently on air, but probably one of the most anticipated shows under this category of reality television is Dancing With The Stars. On this series, we’ve seen celebrities across the industries tackling different kinds of ballroom dancing, and it’s been quite thrilling watching them explore something out of their comfort zone.
