Dancing With the Stars - A Five Star Show For All Ages

Aug 6, 2008
Have you ever watched the television program Dancing With The Stars? If not, that is surprising. Dancing With the Stars is a television show that is loved by many different people of all different ages. For example, I am a mother of 6 children. Dancing With the Stars is the only show that my children, all except the baby because he can not talk, and I love to watch. We try not to miss a single episode.

My oldest, an eleven year old girl and my 4th oldest, a four year old girl, sit week after week glued to the screen hoping to pick up some new moves to use in their drill squad performances. If we have to miss an episode, I hear it for days from them both.

Then there is the flipside, and by that I mean the portion of my family that are boys. I have two boys that watch it weekly as well and they are 7 and 8 years old. The older of the two watch it wondering if he will ever dance like that and the younger of the two watch it hoping to see someone mess up. Go figure, boys will be boys.

I personally like to watch it because it shows that celebrities do not automatically come by a wide array of talent they have to work to become good at some things. My personal favorite celebrity that has been on the show, probably showed that more than some. Billy Ray Cyrus is my favorite of the all the celebrities that have appeared on Dancing With the Stars. He struggled from day one. He was large and awkward to put it nicely.

Billy Ray never let his awkwardness hold him back though. He gave it his all every time he performed. An interesting point is that season, all of my children were also rooting Billy Ray on. Granted they were rooting for him because he is the father to their favorite actress but none the less, it again shows the wide range of ages that enjoy the show. After all, any show that can keep the interest of a woman in their mid to late 30s and also her six children must have something worthwhile in it.

Now let us take a minute to compare what the different age groups think of the judges. The three widely known judges are; Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonili. Every one has their own opinion of the judges. Some like one or two of them and there are also some that like all three or none of them. I like the fact that the judges usually will be right on the money. However, I have noticed that my children tend to get upset with the judges, even when their scores are warranted, if the judges give their favorite performer a bad score. They seem to be hardest on Carrie Ann, especially my boys.

No matter what age, sex, or geographic area you are from, chances are you have seen an episode or more of the ever popular show Dancing With the Stars. If you have children, try to sit down and watch an episode with them. It is a fun way to install quality family time in this hectic world we live in.
