THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS Dance Lessons at Pro Dance LA
If you are a fan of Dancing with the Stars then you might recognize these handsome young men. Pictured above from left to right meet DANCING WITH THE STARS & DANCING WITH THE STARS: JUNIORS pros/mentors Brandon Armstrong, Gleb Savchenko and Alan Bersten.
DISNEY’S THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS will be
AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL AND BLU-RAY JANUARY 29TH!
In celebration of the movie, and the fact that it releases to Blu-ray next week, I wanted to share with you a peek at my time in Gleb’s dance studio Pro Dance LA. We had a ball dancing the night away. We learned some fancy dance moves to a number inspired by Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
I was able to ask them about their advice to young dancers. I loved their answer so much that I am sharing it here with you. I’m a dance mom myself and appreciate so much the fact that these men have so much passion and love for dance. I love that they were willing to take their time to share it.
Isn’t that just the best advice? I think my favorite part is when GLEB firmly says NEVER GIVE UP! He literally speaks to where he comes from and how perseverance and hard work pushed him through to where he is today. They all gave such fantastic advice. I’m sharing this video clip at my daughter’s dance studio next week because I really want them to hear this message about following your dreams.
I had so much fun at Pro Dance LA! A huge thank you to Gleb for sharing his studio with us. A huge thank you to Brandon and Alan as well. Very impressive young men who are destined to do amazing things in the world of dance… so watch for them!
A sneak peek at the dance lessons…
I’m definitely not a dancer, in fact… it doesn’t come easy to me at all. I love to dance though, so I was excited to see just how good these instructors were. They had their work cut out for them with 25 bloggers on the dance floor hoping to learn new moves.
And of course, the lighting in the studio was fantastic, so selfies and group photos were totally part of the fun.
