Seems like this season of "Dancing With the Stars" has a lot of what fans love—great dancing.
For the second week in a row, Cheryl Burke and her partner William Levy wowed the judges, this time with a Quickstep, and they earned a score of 26 out of a possible 30. Last week, Team Fuego, with a Cha Cha Cha.
Burke, who has a dance studio in Mountain View and when in town stays in Menlo Park, sent the following message to people subscribed to the studio's newsletter.
Dear fans, family and friends,
What an exciting DWTS Season!!! The cast is full of star-studded celebrities who are all talented and who performed exceptionally well these first two weeks. It's definitely the best first two shows of any season in the history of "Dancing with the Stars."
During the first show, William impressed the judges with his rhythmic Cha Cha. This week he performed the Quickstep, demonstrating his newfound skill with elegant, more sophisticated ballroom dance styles.
It would not be obvious to TV viewers but let me tell you William receives a big reaction from the live audience. The women and girls swoon and scream from the time the music starts to the time we get the judges' scores. Last week Bruno called him the hottest package of the season and Carrie Ann thanked ABC for her job.
The competition in season 14 is at the highest level we have ever seen. We really need your support now and in the weeks ahead. Please do not forget to vote for us.
