Lindsay Arnold To Dance In New Four Week Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition And More News

TRIB Live interviewed Lindsay Arnold on the new Dancing With The Stars tour. She talks of why the show is different and fun this time. There are also mentions on the new Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition. Note how Lindsay says the new mini season will last 4 weeks and she’ll be back for it. More below including Sasha Farber and Emma Slater wedding talk as well….

The show also features professional dancers Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Hayley Erbert and Brandon Armstrong, showcasing original pieces choreographed by Emmy Award-winning choreographer Mandy Moore and ballroom and contemporary dances from the TV show.

“We are doing the freestyle, the samba, our Disney week foxtrot and our Charleston,” Arnold says. “Jordan and I also dance in a lot of new group numbers, so that is something new and different that people haven’t seen.”

Both Arnold and Fisher overcame injuries during the regular dance season.

“The biggest challenge was the semifinals because of the injuries,” she says. “I hurt my knee the day before the show and didn’t know if I was going to be able to dance. On top of that, I stabbed Jordan’s eye with my fingernail and he was pretty much blind during the live show. We wanted it so bad, we knew we had to rely on each other and work together and we somehow made it happen.”

Arnold says she’ll be back for the spring season of “Dancing with the Stars,” which will feature a mini four-week “all athletes” edition. Her immediate plans after the live tour ends in March include attending Farber’s and Slater’s wedding and taking some time off for a family vacation in Mexico.
