It’s good to hear from the James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd camp! Peta writes all about rehearsals and their dances tonight at People.com. She says their Samba will be ‘very sexy’. Here is more…
We’re dancing to a very sexy samba song. We have a little hip-hop section at the start, which is cool, and then we break into samba for the rest of the dance, so it’s going to be exciting. Some layers of clothing might come off! James is excited about the routine and we have some great costumes this week.
We’re just trying to have fun and impress the judges every week and show that we are improving. James tries so hard with his technique. He’s putting in so many hours to lock in the technique, and samba is – for me and for most people – the hardest Latin dance. I think he’s dealing with it really well, but yet there’s definitely some pressure.
James and I are always there for one another, and we try to do activities outside of rehearsals as well to keep things fun. We go to the movies, we get dinner, we get lunch. Work is work – when we’re in rehearsals, we’re working six to seven hours, and then we can go and do what we like, so it’s a good balance of both. We have a great level of respect and discipline when we’re in the studio, and we just like to get work done.
