Welcome to the 11th season premiere of Dancing with the Stars!
This season boasts some of the show’s most highly-anticipated stars, and this is the place to follow along as the dancing excitement gets under way. Throughout tonight’s two-hour premiere, I’ll be updating this site with a live recap and commentary. Forget what the judge’s say – what do experts know about ballroom dancing anyway? Stay here and you’ll get a real, non-expert opinion.

Laurel grew up in Mamaroneck, NY, Grosse Pointe, MI and Bellevue WA. She then went on to live in places like Boston, Tucson, Houston, Wales, Tanzania, Prince Edward Island and New York City before heading back to Seattle. Ever since early childhood, when she became addicted to The Muppet Show, Laurel has watched far too much TV. Current favorites include Chuck, Modern Family, Supernatural, Mad Men and Community. Laurel received a BA in Astrophysics (yes, that is possible) from Colgate University and a PhD in Middle Eastern Studies and History of Science from Columbia University before she realized that television is much better than studying.
