DCPA Senior Arts Journalist John Moore met in Denver with three stars of the show in advance of their Jan. 23-24 appearances at the Buell Theatre: Co-founder and guest star Edyta Sliwinska, head judge Karina Smirnoff and competing dancer Benji Schwimmer.

Dancing Pros: Live! pits five teams of professional dancers from Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance along with dance champions from around the world performing in a variety of styles including Cha-Cha, Waltz, Tango, Swing, Freestyle Samba and the Jitterbug. Using electronic voting remotes, the audience will vote for their favorite couple at the end of the show. Video by DCPA Arts Journalist John Moore and Video Producer David Lenk.

As the video ends, Edyta (pronounced “editor,” without the r) teaches the interviewing journalist Moore a few moves. While Schwimmer remains tauntingly unimpressed with his Samba moves, the visionary Sliwinska opines, “Wow, you have some internal rhythm right there.” For information on “Dancing Pros: Live,”  call 303-893-4100, or click here:
