Dancing Pros Live!
The recipe for Dancing Pros Live! packs more heat than a habanero stew. Golden Globe–nominated Growing Pains star Alan Thicke hosts more than a dozen performers from ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, and professional stages across the globe. Dancers such as So You Think You Can Dance finalist Ryan DiLello, Dancing with the Stars competitor Chelsie Hightower, and Dance Temptation star Edyta Sliwinska form five couples who perform solos in two rounds, draped in colorful costumes and lights. Dazzling with waltzes, cha-chas, and freestyle routines, they vie for the audience’s live vote, hoping to take home the night’s trophy and a bouquet of blown kisses.
Between rounds, performers from American Idol and NBC’s The Voice wow with vocal gold, and judges give their expert opinions on the choreography. The result: what People’s Monica Rizzo describes as “top notch dancing from the best in the world.”
It would be hard to think of The Whiting as anything less than opulent. Before audiences grab one of the theater's 2,043 seats, they pass through a lobby where a golden sphere hangs suspended. That sphere, completed a year after the theater's founding in 1967, is made up of 675 gold-plated steel branches, stretching 7 feet in diameter, and is valued at $5 million. It's a fitting tribute to the venue's namesake: James H. Whiting, an early pioneer of the auto industry. Although its gold dulled over time—along with the rest of the theater—a renovation in 1999 helped it sparkle once again and continue drawing passersby into its gravitation field.
