Dancing with the Stars is down to the wire and the remaining finalists are putting everything they have to make it into the finals. Chelsea Kane and professional partner Mark Ballas have been known for pushing the envelope. Will they lay it all on the line with big risks or stick to tradition? Keep reading to find out what Chelsea had to say about their upcoming dances.
Chelsea talked to TV Guide about their upcoming dances. “We started with our winner-takes-all cha-cha. The couple that ins gets an extra 15 points. That is a huge deal! Usually first, second and third place are only separated by a few points. To have an extra 15 points, like, pretty much guarantees you a spot up top and maybe even in the finals.”
For their other two dances, Chelsea does not think they will focus on too much story, as they have in previous dances. “The funny thing is that we’ve been so out-of-the-box that now when we go traditional, people are like, ‘Whoa! We didn’t see that coming!’ We are going a little more traditional. Whenever we get our music, it’s not like we sit down and go, ‘What can we go to get us in trouble?’ Mark really comes up with choreography based on what the music gets out of him. I mean, when you get Deadmau5 and Harry Potter, you really gotta go with it! This week, we have two really beautiful, really classic songs, so I think the dances will reflect that.”
Chelsea is not holding back and is working on improving everything for a coveted spot in the finals. “The cha-cha — making it straight-legged and technically perfect. We want to win that. So far, Kirstie Alley has been such a fan-favorite with her cha-chas that we definitely have serious competition! I think with Argentine tango — just making it sexy and not overly aggressive and selling that. The rumba—making it sexy as well and smooth. I’m glad these two dances are coming toward the end of the run, now that I’m a little more comfortable in my own skin and a little more comfortable with Mark and being out on the dance floor.”
Tune into Dancing with the Stars on Monday at 8 pm on ABC to see Chelsea and Mark try to dance their way into the finals.
