Jodie Sweetin’s new Dancing With The Stars blog has been posted at People (and a little earlier than the norm). She says learning the Jive has been difficult. She also talks of her Judges team dance.
The jive is a really difficult – and exhausting – dance. But I’ve lucked out because it’s one that Keo and I have kind of been working on since day one.
When we first started rehearsing together, Keo choreographed a short jive routine that we do as a warm-up every time we rehearse.
Because of that, the dance feels really comfortable in my body and I hope that means I’m headed for scores that are even better than last week!
We’re also dancing and Argentine tango with Nyle DiMarco and his partner Peta Murgatroyd. When they first told me that’s who I’m paired with, I was really excited. Nyle has been such a natural out on the dance floor, and I think we’re both going to make each other better.
Peta has been doing a fantastic job working with Nyle and being there for him entirely [since he is deaf and can’t hear the music]. And I plan on being there for him in the same way.
As part of our dance, Nyle and I will have to dance a bit without the dance pros. It’s obviously a little nerve-wracking to be out there on our own, but I think people will be really impressed with what Nyle and I do out there tonight.
