I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS All Star Helio Castroneves On The Similarities Between Dancing And Racing Cars

The Baltimore Sun has a new article up where Helio Castroneves compared driving an Indy car to dancing on Dancing With The Stars which are similar in his opinion. You can read why below.

“There are no secrets,” Castroneves said, when asked how competitors on Dancing with the Stars are able to perform intricate moves so quickly. “Dancing is just like racing. You don’t learn choreography. They just give you steps to do and you do them over and over and over. It’s very much like what I do in racing. When I’m driving the race track, it’s all about repetition.”

He has to learn when to brake, where the bumps are, where the corner is tight.

“I learn all that by going ’round all the time,” Castroneves said.

The person who does it best, who gets the rhythm right, usually wins in both competitions.

You can read more at the link as Helio also talks of how doing the show again will give his daughter “a different close-up look at her dad. It also teaches the lesson that anything you want to do well comes with hard work.”

Also, good luck to Helio today in the GoPro’s Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma, California today. The race starts at 4:30p.m ET. He has secured 4th place on the grid. Should be an interesting race.
