Sharna Burgess and Charlie White were interviewed by WMUR in Manchester, New Hampshire. Charlie tells them they have been rehearsing 4 to 5 hours in the morning and then it’s straight to the ice show with Meryl Davis. Below is more….
“Every morning, we have four to five hours of rehearsal, and then it’s straight to the show,” White said. “Physically and mentally, it’s a lot of stress, and it’s difficult.”
White and Davis have been ice dancing partners for 17 years, but they said making the switch to a professional dance partner hasn’t been that difficult.
“No one will ever have the partnership that Charlie and Meryl have,” said White’s dancing partner, Sharna Burgess. “There’s something very special about them, and it’s just meant to be.”
“Some of the habits that I’ve formed on the ice in the last 22 years are difficult to break,” Davis said of her transition to dancing.
