My Nutcracker Dance Lesson Experience With Dancing With The Stars’ Pros

Hey guys! While out in Los Angeles at the end of last year, I got a chance to learn a few dance moves with some of the Dancing With The Stars pros When I tell yah I had a ball, omg! Gleb, Brandon and Alan were so knowledgable about many dance styles and since I was there for the The Nutcracker and the Four Realms junket, we learned the waltz! Brandon was my instructor who taught us in a small group, then afterwards we did a competition where we all showed our fancy footwork! Check out all the fun inside….

I was in the Sugarplum group

Brandon was a great dance instructor
