I was provided with an all expense paid trip. All opinions are my own. Last October, I went to in L.A. for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms red carpet premiere. While there I went to Gleb Savchenko’s dance studio Pro Dance LA. We were able to and interview DANCING WITH THE STARS & DANCING WITH THE STARS: JUNIORS pros/mentors Brandon Armstrong, Alan Bersten and Gleb Savchenko as well as have a Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms inspired dance lesson from them. You can read about our interview here.
I had so much fun! Both of my oldest girls do ballroom dancing. As a result, we are huge fans of DWTS, and they were very jealous that I not only got to meet but dance with these pros. We learned the dance to the song Fall on Me by Andrea Bocelli & Matteo Bocelli. This song is featured in Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on January 29!
Here is our DWTS Lesson inspired by Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms:

As you can see, we had so much fun learning the dance and then performing it in groups. I also had a blast coming home and teaching the dance to my kiddos, who unsurprisingly picked it up quickly. If you are in the LA area, you need to go to a dance lesson at Pro Dance LA!
Disney’s dazzling adventure “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” — inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale and the beloved ballet “The Nutcracker” — carried audiences along with 14-year-old Clara (Mackenzie Foy) to a magical, mysterious world with breathtaking performances by Misty Copeland plus sweets, snowflakes, soldiers, scurrying mice … and no shortage of surprises. Destined to become an annual viewing tradition for adventurers of all ages, the film arrives home instantly with never-before-seen extras and deleted scenes on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD Jan. 29, 2019.
