“Burn the Floor” heats up Chicago during the SNOWPOCALYPSE

As they say in the performing arts world: “The Show Must Go On” The Show Must Go On - Queen: Greatest Hits I & II

There were predictions hitting towards two feet of snow in parts of Chicagoland but a call to Broadway in Chicago confirmed what most businesses, stores and restaurants would not do in downtown Chicago… the show was open and was going to go on as scheduled. Granted, considering how quickly the temperature rose during the first number of the show “Ballroom Beat” (YouTube clip) this came as little surprise to those in attendance. When the first beats of the African rhythm filled the auditorium, you knew it was going to be hot. Dancers appeared throughout the auditorium, in the balcony, in the aisles… dancing and shaking to the rhythms before jumping onto the stage for an amazing opening number.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

Pasha and Anya in “Burn the Floor”

I came across the “Burn the Floor” youtube channel today and I want to share some clips of Pasha and Anya dancing. Plus for me it is also a great reminder of why they were selected as All Stars for season 7.

Dance is one of my biggest passions. I grew up dancing at Augusta West Dance Studio (the same studio that Kathryn McCormick). I have a BFA in theatre/dance from Valdosta State University. Tap is my favorite style of dance.

Burn the Floor with the Di Lellos

For those of you who love the Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello, I just read a great article about them joining the cast of Burn the Floor, along with Season 7 All-Stars Anya and Pasha, and their fellow Season 6 contestant Karen Hauer.

Katee Shean Makeup Contest Winner Pictures

Many of you probably remember about the Katee Shean makeup contest that we held here on Pure SYTYCD. Well, one of the winners was kind enough to send a review of the makeup and also some pictures of her wearing the makeup. Thanks to Cliche Cosmetics for providing the makeup.

Hi John! I haven’t had a performance to wear the make-up to yet, but I did a trial run this evening.

The colors are perfect, actually great for what I usually use and what I didn’t have. I can tell that it will wear well, stay on and last for a while.

I’m attaching a few pictures I snapped. I should have used a bronzer so I wasn’t so white in spots, but you get the drift.

Thanks again! This make-up should last a while too 🙂


Now to the pictures:

Thanks Nielle for sharing!!

Today is the final day to enter the free Burn the Floor tickets and rumor has it that a winner of the SYTYCD Workout DVD’s is making a video for all of us to enjoy.

Burn The Floor Free Tickets Giveaway – Anya and Pasha

Life’s been busy here at Pure SYTYCD. We have a lot of things cooking for next season. I also just finished sending off packages for our Katee Shean makeup giveaway and the 5 winners of the SYTYCD Workout DVD giveaway. Good news. We have another really really nice giveaway.

Yes, we’re giving away free tickets to the Broadway show Burn the Floor. This is an awesome giveaway. We’ll be giving away tickets to see Anya and Pasha who will be performing on the show from August 18th – October 18th. If you haven’t heard about this broadway show check out this video:

The only real challenge to this giveaway is that you have to make it to New York city to be able to enjoy it. I just wish I could make it to New York myself. Luckily, I know there are a lot of people from NY that read this blog. Plus, we’re also going to offer some sort of discount to see the show if you don’t win. So, how to enter to win these free Broadway tickets.

There are 4 different ways to enter yourself to win. Do all 4 things and you’ll have your name entered into the drawing 4 times. The winner will be chosen at random from all of the entries.

Here’s how you enter:
1. Leave a comment on this post (easy enough no?). Just make sure to use your real email or we’ll have no way to contact you and you’ll forfeit your entry. Sadly this happened last contest and so I chose a different winner.
2. Send a tweet to all your friends about this website or this contest. Click Tweet This! to tweet a message about this contest. Make sure to include @tvblog in the tweet to enter.
3. Share a link to on your Facebook, myspace page or blog. Leave a comment with your myspace name, facebook page, or blog post so I can verify.
4. Join the Pure SYTYCD email list (existing members of the list are already entered if they make note of it in the comments below).

Simple as that. All I ask of the winner is that you also come back and tell us about the show. Mostly because I’m completely jealous of whoever wins these tickets.
