Mark Ballas is best known as a pro and two-time mirrorball champion on Dancing with the Stars, but these days he is more likely to be found with a guitar in hand, performing original music with his equally talented wife, BC Jean. My uncle is a guitar player and my mother was a dancer, so from a very young age I was always introduced to cool music, whether it be from flamenco to rock, blues, funk, soul. I loved music first because without music you can’t move and vice versa. My dad is a great guitar player, so I wanted to be a guitar player and then I discovered Kurt Cobain and then it was over, everything just kind of came together at once.
They call their band Alexander Jean(a blend of their middle names) and they are a match made in musical heaven. From age 4 I went to musical theater classes on the weekend where I would do singing, acting, dancing, tap, jazz, all that stuff. BC: We are doing games this year with prizes and stuff. We actually just bought a book last holiday and we got to write down every detail of what we have done, so this year we will have to bring it back out. And I think we should get matching pajamas Mark: Maybe Charmin could do them.
They lived in upstate New York, so I grew up watching them always practicing and performing together, which was so cool. I think at 14 is when I convinced my parents I am serious. Stop talking about college because I already know what I want to do. Mark: Well, the cool thing was I had the riff for maybe two years and I would always play it. BC: And we knew we wanted to write a song based upon our vows and our wedding and our love story. I am not sure how it came about, but we ended up talking about it and how we should go back to our actual wedding venue and perform acoustically there and involve all of these things into one video. In the last year and a half, we have had three tours. We're still getting over the shock, and so is Sabrina Bryan.Just 24 hours after earning a perfect score on Dancing with the Stars, the singer and partner Louis Van Amstel were voted out of the ABC competition. Sabrina Bryan, who had to be voted onto the Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars roster by fans, scored the first 9 of the season last night thanks to a sizzling quickstep with Louis Van Amstel."And when it ended, it was so heartbreaking because we knew we weren't going to get a chance to really show America what we wanted to do in the competition. It was a huge challenge and I'm so sad not to be doing it anymore." It may hurt that her feels like family.And the fact that Mark and I were able to get so close so quickly was so awesome. "I always call him 'Baby Mark,'" Bryan told by ABC, and Bryan said she was enamored with Ballas went they met prior to their first rehearsal in August."When I walked into the rehearsal hall the first day and found out who my partner was, it was so exciting," she told .However this time, Bryan said it was a lot more emotional."That was the first time I actually showed a little more of a vulnerable side and cried because Mark and I did our cha-cha again and we wanted to do it the same way that we did in the beginning," she told . It was so disappointing." While Bryan still has a lot on her plate right now, she said it's still odd to have cover shoot right now. ' As much as people wanted to make it seem like it was so easy for me because I knew other forms of dancing, it wasn't at all."He's such a responsible person that he just feels like he failed me. And you feel all the tension in the studio," "I told him, 'I won't allow you or me to get into a negative mode. Mark, look, even people who were voting for [entertainer Marie Osmond] and [actress Jane Seymour] still thought we were great.They can't believe that we're not in the competition and that is something you can't ask for.
