And we’re off! The MOVE Live On Tour is officially en route and heading to some great cities this week! Phoenix, Albuquerque, Midland and Austin — we’re coming for you!
I love being on tour because it means I get to sample something special from every city. I won’t have a ton of time in between shows, so I’m hoping you all could steer me in the right direction as far as where to grub, shop and see while I’m passing through!
There are so many historical and cultural hot spots surrounding Albuquerque; I have no idea where to start. Any ideas? I know Austin is jam packed with awesome being that it’s all about music and food. So many choices! Help a girl out! I’ll let you know where we end up…
You’re a returning MOVE Live on Tour dancer! What is the best part of the job?
Getting to perform in front of huge crowds is the best! I love the audience. I also love the cast.
What about the costumes?
The costumes are amazing! They’re intricate and interesting. Everything is completely blinged out, covered in rhinestones. Last year was great too but on a smaller scale. We each had three pairs of shoes on the last tour and this year we have six shoe changes! Everything overall is bigger, flashier and even more fun!
What city are you most excited to visit?
Kansas City! My whole family is coming to the show. So are the people from the dance studio I went to growing up. I used to train at a studio that was an hour and a half away from home. It’s really special that they’re all coming.
Now that Dancing With The Stars Season 20 has wrapped, my brain and body is in complete MOVE mode. The tour is fast approaching and that means rehearsals are in full swing. We have so much fun together as a company. The eight hour rehearsals (sometimes even longer!) are extremely challenging, but at the same time a total blast.
We have three returning and seven new dancers this year. Everyone is pumped to take this show on the road! The routines are like nothing anyone has seen before. There might be six or seven varieties of dance in just one song or act. One thing is for sure, you’re going to love jumping up to get down with us! I can’t wait to see you all on the road. I can’t wait to MOVE!
