Peta Murgatroyd has written her first blog for the new season of dancing With The Stars. She writes of how much her life has changed in a year. She also writes of what it’s like to compete against her fiancé Maks. Below she gives us a hint on tonight’s dance with her partner Nick Vaill.
I really have been so surprised by Nick’s ability. He’s doing really well in rehearsals and I think he has the chance of going really far in the competition.
His work ethic is just incredible. He gets through our four-hour rehearsals without ever asking for a break and I never need to remind him to keep practicing and do his homework at home. He’s got a bit of a sporting background, so he’s quick on his feet and is always on beat. The only thing we have to work on is his posture and arm placement. He’s 6’2″, so he’s a big guy. That’s great for a Bachelor but it can make his frame a bit harder to manage and hold.
Tonight we’re dancing a cha cha, and it’s going to be fun and sexy — everything a cha cha should be. We’re in a good place. We’re able to perform it and have all the steps locked down. Now we just need to prove to people that he’s not just The Bachelor. Nick wants to show a different side of himself, so our goal is to bring that out. I really think he has what it takes to wow people.
