In the meantime, Corky Ballas appears to be working with the Canton ice dancers per this tweet from Maia Shibutani:
@MaiaShibutani: We're learning so much from @CorkyBallas this week. Among other things... how to make smokeless brisket!

One of the best casts they have had in years!
OMG, William Levy is on this, I just might watch He is a SUPERSTAH in the telenovela world. And hot, hot HOT I think this is a good move if they want to pull a Latino audience.
Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!
Hope Gladys sings on the show! I've already got "Midnight train to Georgia" stuck in my head.
I am really excited about this season because the stars are quite likeable and it seems there may be a good number with dance potential and/or experience. In the past, I have liked the seasons with people with dance experience. The only 2 stars I was not familiar with are Roshon Fegan and Donald Driver. The thing that thrills me most is that Chelsie finally got someone with dance experience. Roshon and Chelsie are like Julianne and Apollo 2.0, cute blondes with super cute guys.
^ I know nothing about this guy, but he is a cutie!
If this is to end in fire
Then we will all burn together
I keep reading that William Levy is the Latin Gilles Marini....and they both had Cheryl as a partner
I doubt that he will dance/perform as well, though.
What a pleasure - and surprise - Gilles was!
I just saw Mr. Levy in a J-lo video linked a ballroom blog.
Um...I don't care if he can dance, really, and I retract in advance any complaints about male dancers removing their shirts provided he does as well. He can just stand there for all I care.
Eugene Levy would make an interesting contestant on DWTS, too.

Louis Van Amstel is headlining his own ballroom show. It comes to Mpls this Friday but sadly I have to miss it. he looks in the poster for it.
...like he ran around the ring with in Best in Show.
Maybe next time, they will give Tristan a younger partner. Nancy Grace & Gladys Knight aren't exactly spring chickens...

I don't understand why so many posters dislike Derek so much. He is a spectacular dancer, whether or not you like his personality. I think that he and Mark are probably the most talented male dancers (especially Mark) and choreographers. Would I want to have lunch with Derek? No, but I don't dislike him.
I think the issue with Deerek is that he is never given a challenging partner...like Tony or Louis used to get.
