Wanya Morris Writes On His Experience On Dancing With The Stars, Encourages Everyone To Step Out Of Their Comfort Zone

The things that scare us, or we find most difficult, are what make us stronger and better people. ~Wanya Norris

Usually we don’t post on the celebrities after a season is over on Dancing With The Stars, but, we couldn’t help posting on Wanya Morris. He wrote a new blog for the Las Vegas Review Journal on his time and experience on Dancing With The Stars. He’s so thankful he danced. Read on to see why and how he encourages everyone to step out of their comfort zone and more.

I worked hard to perfect the final two routines. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but if it was going to be my last night, I wanted to make sure that it was my best performance yet for the fans. My final performances were memorable ones, and when all three judges held up 10’s, I was elated.

Although I didn’t make it to the finals, I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Not only did I try my best and worked as hard as I ever had, I also did something new, faced the challenge and got so much out of it.

The things that scare us, or we find most difficult, are what make us stronger and better people. I was out of shape and one of the older contestants, but my drive allowed me to persevere.

I now have some unbelievable friends and a new passion that I am continuing. I encourage all of you to step out of your comfort zone and do something you aren’t sure you can achieve. It could be one of the greatest experiences of your life.

For all the fans who have supported me over the years and voted every Monday night, I want to thank you. I appreciate every single one of you.

PureDWTS Exclusive: Lindsay Arnold Gives Us A Sneak Peek Into Her Dance Show With Witney Carson And More

Only one more day until Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson’s Born And Raised In Utah Show taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah Friday, July 15th. We were curious how Lindsay was feeling during these last few days of their final rehearsals. She tells us below. She also gives us a tiny peak into one of the fun performances and more. We can’t thank Lindsay enough for her time. If you haven’t bought tickets yet, see this link as this show sounds like a MUST SEE!!

Hi Lindsey!! Only 4 more days until your “Born And Raised in Utah” show! How are you feeling about it right now as you approach the last rehearsals?

I am feeling so excited and overwhelmed with gratitude. It has been so fun to get back in the dance studio with all of our utah dance friends and create something that is very special and meaningful to Witney and I. We are also so so stoked that our celebrity partners Alek Skarlatos, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Von Miller are joining us!

Which performances are you and the cast looking forward to the most that you’d like fans to watch out for?

There are so many performances that we are looking forward to and have created a lot of variety through out the show. One piece that I am extremely excited about is a Michael Jackson inspired dance featuring our dance coach Rick Robinson. This man has trained so many talented dancers that are in the entertainment industry; Julianne Hough, Mark Ballas, Derek Hough, along with Witney and I and has truly helped us reach our goals. We are so excited to perform with him in our show!!

We’ve heard you have a lot of special guests. Can you tell us about them a little?

We do have a lot of special guests for this show that we are so excited about! We have Super Bowl MVP Von Miller from DWTS season 22, Alek Skarlatos from DWTS season 21, Alfonso Ribeiro DWTS season 19 champion, James the Mormon (a local up and coming rap artist), Brooklyn Fullmer from SYTYCD, Hailee Payne from SYTYCD, Alexia Meyer from SYTYCD, Marcquet Hill from SYTYCD, and Jaymz Tuileva from SYTYCD. The cool thing about our SYTYCD guests is that they all grew up and trained in dancing in Utah! We want this show to showcase the incredible talent Utah has to offer and also give back to our hometown fans and support system. Without the support and love from our families, coaches, and friends from Utah we would not be where we are today.
