I think it's funny that two studios in the SF Bay Area claim to be the "home" studio of Jerry Rice and Anna. Imperial says it right on their web page: http://www.imperialdance.com/about_the_studio/ Starlite doesn't say it on their web page: http://www.starlitedanceclub.com/?starliteballroom But they do say they are the home of Jerry and Anna at the studio. FWIW, it looks like most of the "behind the scenes" filiming is at Imperial (the place with the steps near the ballroom floor), but there were definitely some scenes filmed at Starlite (in two different rooms). And, in case you didn't know, Anna apparently lives in San Jose, CA. Rice spent most of his NFL career in the San Francisco Bay area, first with the San Francisco 49ers, then with the Oakland Raiders, before finishing his career with Seattle and Denver. He apparently still lives in the Bay area. Also, FWIW, ESPN sometimes has a comedy feature on Sportscenter called "Mayne event" featuring the first person eliminated from DWTS, Kenny Mayne. One episode featured Jerry Rice. It was actually pretty funny--the premise is that the now-retired Rice was treating a local flag football league very competitively, taunting the opponents, demanding the football, and keeping track of stats. It builds on Rice's legendary competitveness (he was one of the hardest practicers ever and a perfectionist on the football field). It's his competitiveness that makes me think Rice can last far in this competition, if he treats the competition half as seriously as he treated football, he will do well. And for those who don't follow football, Jerry Rice was not just a wide receiver. He was the greatest wide receiver of all time. It's really hard to overstate his accomplishments as a receiver--he not only holds every major NFL record for receiving, he far surpasses everyone else--400 receptions ahead of second place, 8000 yards ahead of second place, 47 receiving TDs ahead of second place.
