DWTS Pro wants to dance in a same-sex couple next season.
Two professional dancers from “Dancing With the Stars” have said they would like to dance in a same-sex pairing on the show – current pro Val Chmerkovskiy said he would like to do it next season, and former “Dancing With the Stars “pro Anna Trebunskaya told her fans that she would like to do this and that is actually not that unusual in ballroom dancing.
On the October 4th episode of the current pro Cheryl Burke’s “Pretty Messed Up: Dancing With Myself” podcast, Cheryl interviewed her professional dancer Jenna Johnson, who appeared in the first same-sex partnership in “Dancing With the Stars” history this season. dances with partner pop star JoJo Siwa.
Burke commented that she thinks they are fine and that she wants Jenna and JoJo to win when she and Cody Rigsby can’t win. She also said the male-male partnership on Strictly Come Dancing does a great job too.
“’Strictly Come Dancing’, the English version of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ that they have there. You have two boys dancing together, two men, and I find it very cool and fascinating … I don’t find it – it’s not offensive, it’s not raunchy, it’s out of this world, it’s very classy. I think you’re doing a great job Jenna and I think you should win. If we don’t win, ”said Cheryl.
Johnson then said that she saw the video of the couple, John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, dancing a tango for the first week and she thought it was so cool. It also sparked a discussion between her and her husband Val Chmerkovskiy as to whether he would ever dance with a man – and he said he would do it right away.
“Val and I actually talked about it and I was like, ‘Would you ever do that?’ and Val said, ‘I would do this right away next season,’ ”Johnson said.
She also said that she thinks he would be great at it because “he is really great as the girl” and he would be “live”[ing]his best life. “
During her Britney Spears Week Instagram review of “Dancing With the Stars,” Trebunskaya, who last appeared on the show for season 21 in 2015, became her opinion on Jenna and JoJo and same-sex ballroom couples in general asked. Trebunskaya didn’t even hesitate, she thinks it’s great and has even taught same-sex couples in her dance studio.
“In any case, I would [dance with a woman]. I would take the female partner I would. … I have taught same-sex couples, “said Trebunskaya, adding in a separate post:” There have been same-sex ballroom competitions for years. I’ve coached some same-sex couples … it poses its own challenges and I’m only talking about physicality and technique, who leads, who follows, but it also creates opportunities. ”
