Former “High School Musical” star-turned-“One Life To Live” star Corbin Bleu joins AccessHollywood.com as our behind-the-scenes celebrity blogger for this season’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
Here is his latest post…
This week has definitely been a turning point. We’ve passed the halfway mark and everyone seems to have hit a wall. After two months of dancing seven days a week, bodies and minds are tiring and yearning for a reprieve.
This is the time to really dig deep. If you make it to the end, I think the adrenaline of seeing the finish line would carry you through. But right now we’re at the point where the finish line is just far enough to seem like you won’t have enough gas in the tank to make it.
Staying positive and taking it one day at a time is my mantra at this moment, especially because this week’s dance has been filled with hurdles that are still lingering even till now. This week we are doing the cha cha, and even though the song they gave us doesn’t match the down beats that cha cha is supposed to be danced on, somehow Karina managed to find a way to have traditional cha cha steps on this unconventional rhythm.
Frustration was higher than usual this week but we were able to finish and fine tune a dance that is the result of what we strive to do every week, stay optimistic in the face of opposition and put your nose to the grindstone! I hope you, the judges, and in the moment, we, enjoy it!
Besides rehearsal this week I did a photo shoot for Glamoholic Magazine. So nice to get to express creatively without dancing for a few hours! I’m excited to see how it turned out. I also got to spend some time with my girlfriend at the Jack in the Box No Curfew event at Club Nokia where we saw performances by Diplo and Chromeo.
This week coming up is one of favorite times of the year, Halloween! I’ve been sneaking every moment I can inbetween rehearsals to plan my annual Halloween Bash. This year is Circus themed and I am dressing up as the ring master! A little inside scoop, I have been getting help with my costume from the amazingly talented “DWTS” wardrobe crew! Stay tuned for next weeks blog to see how it all went. Happy Halloween!
