So You Think You Can Dance

Hoofer from TV's other dance show comes to town.


So You Think You Can Dance Hoofer from TV's other dance show comes to town. Dancing With the Stars pro Louis van Amstel saunters into town this weekend to teach people how to bust some eye-catching moves. He knows his stuff: Paired with Melrose Place actress Lisa Rinna, he placed fourth in ABC's hit reality show last season. "She came from zero, knowing absolutely nothing about dancing," says Amstel, a two-time world champ in Latin dancing. "You see a beginner putting his or her ego on the line to learn within eight weeks. You know all the cameras are on you. And people are watching at home, saying, 'If they can do it, then I can do it.'"

That's why van Amstel is teaching eight classes in rumba, ballroom, Latin, and cha-cha at pal Rebecca Sweet's studio in Strongsville today and tomorrow. "It's something you can do with your boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, or family member," he says. "If you're really talented and serious, you can become a world champion."
