Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas

Chelsea Kane

"The Disney Dream Girl"

PRO DANCER PARTNER: Mark Ballas

Chelsea Kane is a versatile young actress/musician who can be seen and heard in so many different ways these days. She currently stars in the web series The Homes on Lockerz.com. Chelsea is also the voice of Bea in Disney Channel's hit animated comedy series Fish Hooks. She also played Stella Malone, the longtime friend and style guru to the Lucas brothers in the Disney Channel comedy series Jonas, where you may have seen her credited as Chelsea Staub.

This fabulous Phoenix native has been acting professionally since the age of nine. Chelsea landed her first role as Young Kim in the national Broadway tour of Showboat and went on to star in productions of Peter Pan, The Wiz, Cinderella, Oliver, Annie, Titanic, The Sound of Music, Schoolhouse Rock, A Christmas Carol and The Secret Garden, among others. But wait! There's more!

Chelsea starred in the Disney Channel original movies Minutemen and Starstruck and guest-starred on Disney Channel's hit series Wizards of Waverly Place. Other guest credits include roles on Cracking Up, Summerland, Listen Up and The Bill Engvall Show.

On the big screen, Chelsea landed her first role in the family film Arizona Summer. That only seems fitting since, as we mentioned earlier, she was born in Phoenix. Chelsea also had a starring role in the motion picture Bratz.

During her free time, Chelsea enjoys hitting the concert circuit with her Polaroid camera and her favorite musician friends. Maybe we'll see some of them in ballroom cheering Chelsea on as she takes to the stage on Dancing With The Stars!

Mark Ballas

CELEBRITY PARTNER: Chelsea Kane

BACKGROUND:
Coming from a family of international dance stars, it's no surprise that Mark has two shiny disco ball trophies at home. He even beat out his dad, Corky, and tied with childhood friend Derek Hough, for the wins.

Mark joined the show in Season 5. Despite their stellar performances, he and partner Sabrina Bryan were eliminated in week six. It was so controversial that various websites voted it 2007's Most Shocking TV Moment.

Despite the Season 5 upset, Mark came back to win the DWTS title in Season 6 with partner Kristi Yamaguchi, and again in Season 8 with Shawn Johnson.

Born in Houston, Texas, Mark moved to London with his family as a child and joined the Italia Conti Academy of Dramatic Arts Associate School where his training in acting and singing/dancing began.

He grew up with fellow DWTS pros Derek and Julianne Hough, who lived and trained with his parents. He says they are more like family than friends. "We get along like brothers...we fight like brothers." Mark and Julianne partnered to win Junior Latin American and Junior Olympics dance championships.

As an actor, Mark has played the lead in the musical Copacabana. He also took on roles in the UK tour of Maria de Buenos Aires, and was an understudy in the London Palladium production of The Buddy Holly Musical. Plus, maybe you caught his guest star appearance on the 2008 season premiere of Samantha Who?

When he's not dancing, Mark focuses on his other passion, which is music. He rocks out with his band on tour and in the studio, where he’s working to complete his upcoming CD, set for release this fall.

ACHIEVEMENTS:
• British Juvenile Ballroom and Latin American dance champ
• US Open to the World, British Open to the World and International Open to the World Junior Latin American Champ
• Junior Olympics Gold Medal Winner
• British Open to the World, US Open to the World, International Open to the World twice, United Kingdom, Youth Latin American Dance Champion
PRIOR CELEBRITY PARTNERS:
• Bristol Palin

They were definitely tough. BUT if she does go home, it's all on Mark for coming up with the strange stuff.

She is so good and hopefully she will continue. I could see what the judges reasons where. Have to admit I did enjoy their performance.

For me, they are consistently the best and should win. They seem to always have a good time and it shows. I don't think that any of the other teams are on their level.

I totally agree. She didn't luck-out with her partner. It might cost them; the fact that he tries too much weird stuff when there is no need.

Best dancer in the game. :outfitted_pirate:


I agree.
