I have spent much of my life as an entertainer, a professionally trained singer and performer. I have extensive study in voice and theatre and have had dance experience with my musical theatre background and being a part of the pop recording group, The Pussycat Dolls. But the level of dance rehearsal and hard work for Dancing With The Stars has pushed my limits to another level. It's been a deeply inspiring process. I must say I wish everyone could dance in my shoes! (But then again, I would never wish them these blisters! ;)
When I first started to learn the dance from Tuesday night for example, THE JIVE, I was upset by the producer's choice of music, feeling it wouldn't lend itself to a classic jive. Being a contemporary song, I couldn't imagine that the horse like kicks I was doing during rehearsals would even remotely resemble a light fun jive.
My experience thus far has been a challenging one like none other, but then again, that's why I decided to jump in! Hard work and taking risks have never gotten in the way...if anything that's probably my greatest advantage is my work ethic, passion and relentless drive and dedication.
