Watching Dancing with the Stars IN REAL LIFE!

OKAY, by now you have read about my BIG HERO 6 red carpet premiere experience,movie review,Disney Movies Anywhere news, interviews with the filmmakers, drawing demo (if not, click to read each one!), interviews with Jamie Chung (voice of Go Go Tomago) and Genesis Rodriguez (voice of Honey Lemon), voicing Baymax and now I’m back with my experience with watching a live taping of “Dancing with the Stars”!

Yes, it’s true, I had the opportunity to sit in the audience during a “Dancing with the Stars” live episode. I even dressed up for the event. Fancy, too.

It was surreal being on the set of DWTS, as if it weren’t the real set at all. Dancers were rehearsing their routines and stars were just…walking around and rehearsing, too. Crazy.

Watching of Dancing with the Stars IN REAL LIFE!

Back home, my husband was watching the show and saw me in the audience! See me???

I was right there during the entire show, which was a great location for viewing the post-dance interviews! 

So, what’s it like sitting in the audience of “Dancing with the Stars”? It’s high-energy exciting and a whole lot of fun. There was also a lot of standing and clapping! I clapped so much, in fact, that my hands were worn out after the show, ha!

After the show, we went to a restaurant/bar called “Mixology” and what do you know – some of the stars from DWTS showed up! I had the chance to sit down with Lea Thompson (YES, THE LEA THOMPSON FROM BACK TO THE FUTURE!) and Artem. Lea even complimented me on my dress, which, well, made my night.

Had the chance to chat with @leakthompson & @artemchigvintse from #DWTS. So much fun! #ABCTVEvent A photo posted by Amy Bellgardt (@momspark) on

Way cool experience that I still can’t believe really happened! A big THANK YOU to ABC for inviting me. Make sure you check out “Dancing with the Stars” this Monday at 8/7c!
