    If this follows Evan's season, Maks and Sharna will travel on tour with Meryl and Charlie so they can rehearse on the road. Then they'll fly back and forth for DWTS (which I think is still Monday night).

    Of course. Too bad Voir didn't create the world! They could have done it in FIVE days...

    Oy. Give it a rest.

    Even if you believe D&W are lacking in the "dance" part of ice dancing, they have a lot of advantages-- they're in great shape, they're used to performing, they're used to very hard work and discipline. And I bet if they plan to continue ice dancing in some capacity, they're viewing this as a learning experience.
    I've never watched DWTS regularly, but this should be fun. I'm going to tune in.

    I don't watch the show because it's really a popularity contest. However, it will be interesting to see how ice dancing translates to regular dancing. Meryl and Charlie are used to being expressive with their upper bodies but their foot placement is very different on ice skating. I hope they do well and get a lot of $$$.

    DWTS is for beginners, those with no dance training. Aside from the cheesetastic production and vibe (which I don't really mind), it's quite mockish and not about showcasing exceptional dance talent. It's a popularity contest, which is okay too, those are always fun. The best dancers don't necessarily win. Weaker dance teams are more likely to win, but I guess D/W know all about that in their competitive careers as ice dancers .

    Now that D/W are going to be dancing on the floor, I'm glad we won't be seeing their shallow edges and toe picking steps running on the ice. That said, Charlie is by far the weakest ice dancer out of the team (and among the top 3 men in ice dance) so it will be interesting how he fares with his partner. I want to see some passion and commitment, and better leg lines and unison, which is probably easier on the floor than on the ice when they actually have to be on edges.

    Whatever they do, I hope D/W start actually enjoying their performance. Over these last seasons, especially this current one they don't look like they enjoy ice dancing together. True, they don't have that IT factor nor charisma, so hopefully their superior partners bring something sparkly out of them. Both D/W have very limited range of movement as shown in their ice dancing careers, maybe the professionals on the show will help improve these things.

    It would be great if Meryl and Charlie made it to the finale and were the last two standing

    After 17 years, I bet it will feel weird for Meryl and Charlie to be in hold with different partners.

    Charlie is partnered with Sharna Burgess, a relatively new pro (3rd season) who made a hit with viewers with her partnering of Andy Dick. She did a really great job with him.
    Yeah, but just when Maks finally gets a good partner they're going to have to switch partners mid-season, which figures.

    Both teams were fabulous and are most likely done competing, can't we all just get along~~~.

    Anyway, I'm so excited! I enjoyed Evan on DWTS four years ago. I had heard Meryl wouldn't be with Derek, but I gasped when I realized she was with Maks. I didn't even consider him because I figured he would be too tall, but they looked fine on GMA so I guess not? I'm interested to see how ther personalities work together! I hope the partner switch thing is just for an episode...
