1. Why do you want to be on Dancing with the Stars?
I've recently moved to the U.S. and Dancing with the Stars is a new challenge for me. It's very exciting that this is my first opportunity to work in front of such a large live television audience here in the U.S.
2. Which dance style do you think is most "you"?
I think my personality is best suited for Tango. It is sultry and passionate.
3. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you're going to win?
This is my first introduction to such a large live audience I'm so worried that my nerves are going to get the best of me.
4. Do you have a "Dancing" hero (for example a pro dancer or other Dancing star?) / Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you?
I would be so happy if I can learn to move like Ciara, Shakira and Beyonce....but it is a dream!!
5. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear?
I've watched some of the Jive performance and that dance is scaring me! It is beautiful but complicated. It reminded me of the musicals!
