Dancing With The [Seacrest Studios] Stars!

Written by Seacrest Studio intern, Corey Earwood

          Dancing with the Stars cast members, Jenna Johnson, Witney Carson, Lindsay Arnold, Alan Bersten, Pasha Pashkov and Brandon Armstrong, stopped by Seacrest Studios at Levine Children’s Hospital on Saturday February 29th before their performance at Ovens Auditorium. 

          As soon as they came into the studio, they began to think of the perfect DJ name. Lindsay decided the perfect DJ for her was DJ Pillow Pet, seeing as how she takes a Pillow Pet with her everywhere on tour. We learned so many fun things about our guests, but one that blew us away was that Witney can play the trombone and make the shape of a flower with her tongue! 

          One patient, DJ Cambridge, asked the stars “What celebrity would you like to be a bodyguard for?” and DJ Drop It Like It’s Hot, aka Jenna Johnson, quickly responded Lebron James, even though she probably wouldn’t be much help. We even got to see them dance when they did the Just Dance version of Waka Waka by Shakira! They were so into it that Alan, Pasha, and Brandon lifted Jenna into the air for the final pose!

          As our time together came to a close, Brandon, aka DJ Be Strong, told us that although not everything is in our control, finding small things you can control helps him to stay positive. Another patient, DJ Kasey Crocs, also shared with us that for her, dancing and swimming always makes her stay positive. There was never a dull moment with these STARS as they lit up our studio and we hope they come back again soon!
