Sharna Burgess Talks On Rehearsals With Nick Carter, Dancing With The Stars, And More

Sharna Burgess recenlty talked with WNY Papers about Dancing With The Stars and how much the show has done for dancers and dance itself in the time it’s been on the air. She also talked on her career, pushing herself to get better, and her new Dancing With The Stars partner, Nick Carter. Right now, they are trying to work on getting that hip hop vibe out of him. Read on….

“I, obviously, am … incredibly passionate about my craft, and everyday I push myself to be better. I never get comfortable. … I’ve always strived to be more than just dance steps, and go to the depths of what dance is about – and make people feel something, and entertain.

“I love it. It’s my world. And, honestly, I feel like I was put on this earth to dance. It just seemed there wouldn’t be another option for me. So, you know, I had to make it work (laughs).”

Burgess recently learned she’d be paired with musician Nick Carter for season 21. “I’ve had amazing partners – it’s all in different ways – but Nick is, certainly, a different level,” she said of the Backstreet Boys band member. “He’s got dance talent, but we are discovering in our first few hours of rehearsal that, in some ways, it’s a little bit of a disadvantage. We need to get that hip-hop vibe kind of out of him, so we can get the ballroom technique.”
