You’ve been impressed by their dancing watching from the comfort of your couch - imagine how much more dazzling “Dancing with the Stars” is live.
The new “Dancing with the Stars: Live! - Dance All Night Tour” visits the Seneca Niagara Casino Events Center in Niagara Falls for performances at 5 and 8 p.m. Saturday. The 90-minute show features dance numbers from the popular TV show as well as new choreography. Look for Lindsay Arnold, Sharna Burgess, Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Alan Bersten, Brittany Cherry and Jenna Johnson.
Also dancing is Alek Skarlatos, a fan favorite on the recently finished season 21, who is the Army National Guardsman hailed for his heroics in helping stop a gunman on a Paris train. “I’m excited to get to go out there and perform without the pressure of being scored by judges,” Skarlatos told People magazine. “Before coming on the show, I’d never danced before and I didn’t know how much work and how much fun it could be. I’m really glad Lindsay (his dancing partner Lindsay Arnold) and I will get to focus on the fun part a little more now.”
Tickets start at $45 (box office, Ticketmaster). Call (800) 745-3000 or visit senecacasinos.com.
