WINNERS OF DWTS SEASON 22 

It’s finally over.

The suspense has ended!

All along I’d been rooting for Nyle and Peta.

I was concerned that my wishes could jix their chances.

I watched the whole season.

It was a pleasure.

I saw this incredible young man grow and blossom into the great performer that he proved himself to be.

The competition was fierce, meaning that all the finalist had incredible talent too.

I couldn’t start this day without “reporting” on the final results.

Maybe most already know.

If you didn’t here it is.

I’m ready for the next Season in September.

Dancing With the Stars Finale

DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd were awarded the Mirrorball trophy.

(Second place went to Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas, with Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy nabbing third.)

DiMarco — who, coincidentally, also won the 22nd cycle of America’s Next Top Model — was a favorite from the beginning, as he overcame his deafness (including an inability to feel musical vibrations) to produce some of the season’s most memorable routines.

Of course, before Nyle and Peta could overtake Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough as the reigning Dancing champs, the ABC series hosted a two-hour celebration of this season’s standout performances and memorable contestants.

The three finalists also performed their 24-hour fusion dances — a mash-up of two dance styles — which earned them one last score from the judges, denoted below:

Ginger Zee and pro Val Chmerkovskiy — Foxtrot/Argentine Tango — 27/30

Nyle DiMarco and pro Peta Murgatroyd — Tango/Cha-Cha — 30/30

Paige VanZant and pro Mark Ballas — Jive/Salsa — 30/30

And just like that, Season 22 came to a close, with Nyle and Peta swept up in a massive celebration alongside their castmates.

“I owe it all to him,” Murgatroyd said of her partner. “He’s just incredible.”

ABOUT NYLE

Nyle DiMarco (born May 8, 1989 in Queens, New York) is an American actor and model. In 2015 he was the first and only deaf contestant to appear on the final season of America’s Next Top Model.
DiMarco was born in Queens, New York. He comes from a deaf family with his parents, both of his brothers and his grandparents all born deaf. His parents divorced when he was young and his mom singlehandedly raised him and his two brothers. He grew up in Frederick, Maryland and graduated from Gallaudet University with a degree in Mathematics. DiMarco lives in New York City. He considers American Sign Language (ASL) to be his native language and is also proficient in lip reading and nonverbal communication.
DiMarco had been doing freelance modeling for about a year before he was contacted by America’s Next Top Model producers. They scouted the 25-year-old via his Instagram without realizing he was deaf. He is the second male winner of the CW’s America’s Next Top Model. DiMarco is now currently signed with Wilhelmina Models in New York City. He is also working with Barxbell, the first all deaf company based in Pleasanton.
DiMarco acted in a leading role for an independent film On the Can … again under ASL Films production, a movie told in American Sign Language with English subtitles.He played the recurring role of Garrett Banducci in Switched at Birth on the Freeform network.
DiMarco doesn’t consider himself to be disabled by deafness and sees his media profile as an opportunity to bring awareness to Deaf culture. He views deafness as an advantage in modeling because he is accustomed to conveying messages without speaking.He also holds the belief that deaf roles should be played by deaf actors.

 DiMarco is an honorary spokesperson for the Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids (LEAD-K) campaign.

At the end of the day …. “DWTS …. Nyle & Peta’s ‘Silence’ Tango …. ”!!

~~May 10, 2016~~ 

A MOMENT OF SILENCE

Nyle continues to amaze me.

He’s a handsome guy whose disposition seems to be just perfect.

He has no fear, he has no limitations.

He doesn’t let his lack of hearing stop him.

This was a perfect example.

Taking us, the viewers, to his silent world.

The feeling was amazing!

It’s incredible that he has done so well.

This is the second tango he does in Season 22.

I don’t want to jinx it in any way but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he takes the mirrored ball home.

Nyle & Peta silence the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ competition with powerful paso doble

With a hearing-impaired dancer in the competition, it was only a matter of time before a moment like this came to “Dancing With the Stars.” On Monday’s (May 9) episode, Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd took the music out of their routine.

Hitting the stage with a powerful paso doble number, the pair not only hit their steps hard and with meaning, the music stopped halfway through the number.

Doing their part to show the audience what it feels like to go through the motions of a dance routine without the ability to hear the music, all that was heard for these seconds was the clapping of the audience. The moment definitely drove the point home and moved the crowd in multiple ways.

Len Goodman’s comments weren’t very positive, saying, “I thought there needed a little more shaping through the body, on occasion.

” As the boos came from the audience, his critiques grew harsher, but he ended his point on a high note, with: “I’ve got to say, you come out every time and you dance with purpose and confidence.”

“I thought that was mind blowing,” exclaims Bruno Tonioli. Shifting the tone of the critiques, Carrie Ann Inaba agreed with Bruno. With tears in her eyes, she says, “I’ve seen a lot on this show for 22 seasons and I’ve never seen anything like that which touched me so profoundly.”

With 10 from Carrie Ann Inaba, a 9 from Len Goodman and another 10 from Bruno Tonioli, the duo’s total score for the routine is 29.

THERE ARE NO LIMITATIONS

The Gallaudet Dance Company is a performing group of approximately 15 dancers. All members of the company are undergraduate or graduate students at Gallaudet University, the world’s only accredited liberal arts university for deaf and hard of hearing students.

Each dancer’s background is different-both in terms of hearing loss, preferred communication mode, secondary school education, and current major field of study as a University student. But all the dancers are excellent communicators.

They rely on their vision as their primary mode of communication and communicate through their dancing in a range of styles, including dance that uses American Sign Language as its foundation. Gallaudet University itself is a bilingual community where students, faculty, and staff communicate with each other in both American Sign Language and English.

The Gallaudet Dance Company which was founded in 1955 will celebrate its 60th Anniversary in 2015.
