I was invited on an all-expense paid media trip as a guest of Disney and ABC. All opinions are my own.

Learning how to dance from a professional dancer is an amazing experience. Learning how to dance with a Dancing With The Stars Pro is an even more exciting adventure!

Dancing With The Stars Dance Lesson

Believe it or not, I’ve now done two different dancing lessons with the DWTS pros. The first time was a fun and upbeat little salsa number that was really exciting to learn.

More recently, I was able to chat with “Dancing with the Stars” pros and “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” mentors Brandon Armstrong, Alan Bersten and Gleb Savchenko regarding the movie, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms.

Dancing With The Stars Interview

After our interview we had a chance to learn a dance from one of the songs inspired by the movie. Fall On Me is a really beautiful song and the dance is just as beautiful.

Brandon Armstrong was my group’s dance instructor, and while I loved listening to this music and trying to dance along, I cannot say that I was quite as graceful as the song would suggest you should be. :)
