If you were sick one day or if something were to happen to you, you lose money. Dancing has always been my passion. Even if I had to work extra hard to make a living, I would do it.
Are you surprised at the mainstreaming of all things musical theatre and dance on primetime television? I started in the second season [of Dancing With The Stars]. It looks a little cheesy.

And you have a dance studio as well. Yes, I actually have two dance studios. Are people taking numbers and lining up to have you teach them dance? We have lots of amazing professional teachers at my studio and my mom runs both of them. The reason for that is so I can meet everybody. You look extremely confident on Dancing With The Stars. Is there any particular dance where you feel less secure, either about your body or your dance technique?
Ballroom dancing is my way of expressing who I am. Dancing has always been a way for me to express myself. Len Goodman is the actual real ballroom judge. Whatever comes out of his mouth, most of the time I will agree with him. With Carrie Ann and Bruno, they know what a great performance is. What are some of your other passions outside of dancing? I love to travel. I work really hard and I play really hard laughs.

Out of all of the professional dancers from Dancing With The Stars, who are you close with outside of the show? One of my really good friends who I just went to visit during our last hiatus was Kym Johnson.
I went to visit her in Australia. Kym and I always keep in touch during hiatus. Were you on a competitive dancing circuit with many of the professional dancers from Dancing With The Stars? Yes, ballroom dancing is a small, little world. Some people, like Maksim [Chmerkovskiy], Karina [Smirnoff] and Tony [Dovolani] have been professional dancers longer than most of us. Kym Johnson was in Australia so I actually never knew who she was until she started on the show in season three.
Derek [Hough] and Mark [Ballas] are younger than me, so they competed in a younger category. But we all knew of each other.
Does competition get heated between the dancers, or is it all in good fun? How are the ratings going to be? This is something that we want to continue doing.
This show has changed all of our lives! Do the contestants get really heated with one another during the competition? I think more towards the end, I think we all do. You can see that light at the end of the tunnel.
