Were the accents necessary?

Overall a nice story and performance. Only question: were the accents necessary? The accents could be offensive to some listeners, and the narrator couldn't check how to properly pronounce "Tagalog"? Twice? Yikes. Too bad Cheryl didn't narrate it :)

Loved it!

What made the experience of listening to Dancing Lessons: How I Found Passion and Potential on the Dance Floor and in Life the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed listening to the backstories of the dances that I saw on Dancing With the Stars.

What other book might you compare Dancing Lessons: How I Found Passion and Potential on the Dance Floor and in Life to and why?

Any biography - this was the first biography I read or listened to of a professional dancer.

Have you listened to any of Cris Dukehart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't. However, the audio was going in and out at times. I wonder if the producer copied and pasted it poorly.
