Not only that, but you have to be a professional dancer or a 'celebrity' to get onto the show, even if some of the contestants are not universally well-known. Still, even if that has crushed one of your dreams, there is no reason why you should not get out your old dancing shoes and strive to regain the style you had in your younger days. It could be fun!
Getting back to Dancing with the Stars though. You may have noticed too that many of the celebrity dancers are no longer at the peak of their careers. I do not just mean old, I mean that they are not getting the career offers any more so they have lots of time on their hands to practice. Some people will do anything to get in the limelight and that goes ten times more for old artistes.
Perhaps some of them are hoping to jump-start their careers and be rediscovered. Here are a couple of names of the type of celebrity I mean, although I do not know for certain what their intentions were: Jerry Springer, Jane Seymour, Marie Osmond and Priscilla Presley. Numerous kids have almost certainly never even heard of them.
If nothing else, all of the celebrities on Dancing with the Stars would say that they agreed to do the show in order to have fun and this is absolutely a fact. They do look as if they are enjoying themselves and they do give much of excitement to numerous people as well.
Both the British version and its American spin-off attract large audiences for every episode, which normally go out at peak viewing times.
The celebrities are not professional dancers although many actors and singers have had some dancing training in the early part of their careers. This ensures a leveler playing field and gives everybody a chance of winning the competition.
Much relies on the teaching capacity of the professional dancing partner too. Some of the professionals have to have the patience of a saint to cope with the colossal egos of some performers.
There is a chance that the format of Dancing with the Stars will get jaded, so who knows, maybe they will modify the format of the show one day or there may be a spin off in which members of the public are auditioned to dance with celebrities or professional dancers as they are now.
If you are hoping that that might happen one day, now is the time to get out those old dancing shoes, dust them off and take your partner for a whirl.
