    Just learned that there will be a casting call at the Colorado Star Ball for a new dance reality show. From what I have been able to find out, it will be on The Learning Channel and will focus on amature dancers. Anyone else heard about this show?

    Desert Classic says it is participating in a TV show about pro am on TLC in their email. Millennium also said there will be reality show participation at their comp. Sounds like there are a couple of pro am type reality shows in the works. Wonder if they will be successful?

    Sounds more like they're looking for couples/intending to film at multiple competitions for one show. Or they're using those comps to scout for couples willing to appear-I wonder if they mean at the competition or to be followed. Just being filmed for one segment on a show is a lot of paperwork and time-consuming, I can imagine what it's like being followed-well, I don't IMAGINE, I can ask my vet as they spend a chunk of the year with the NGW camera crew. When they came to our house Dad and I spent almost a half-hour before the vet arrived being interviewed, talking "candidly" (ie chatting with the producer while miked with the camera running), did multiple takes of walking the horse out of the barn, was instructed on how much enthusiasm to show saying hello to the vet I've known since I was seven... And there's half a dozen people and five vehicles, while on TV you see the vet and his car. I'm not sure that would be much fun while trying to dance--"No, I'm not doing a retake of falling on my tukas!"

    Each competition is an episode for the first season of the TLC show... I think there are six competitions being featured in this first season...

    Interesting - there is a link, some information, and email address to submit information for casting on the Desert Classic site. They mention two films, but only give any details for the TLC show. The news links have noted that 'Ballroom Blitz' is a working title, so this must be the same show. Sounds like the current filming is just for casting? Hmmm.

    "First up: The Learning Channel (TLC) is casting for STARS for the new TV reality show "Dance Dance Dance!" If you have a good story please send your bio, picture and link of dancing to...."
