Tinashe on the pressure and the challenges of competing on Dancing with the Stars


ABC/Lou RoccoTinashe is competing on the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, and she admits it’s a challenge to learn new styles of dance for the show.

“I think there’s a lot of pressure,” she tells ABC Radio. “I think I’m not familiar with ballroom so it’s [sic] a little nervous for that because it’s basically learning a whole entire new style and skill set.”

The “2 On” singer is current rehearsing with her partner, professional dancer Brandon Armstrong. She says their first routine is very demanding.

“I dance typically more hip-hop style so I’m very, like, low to the ground,” she says. “This particular number we’re starting with is just a jive. It’s very fast, very technical, very, like, up-on-your-toes, leaning forward. So it’s a lot of different stuff that I’m just not used to.” (AUDIO IS ABC-1-ON-1)

Dancing with the Stars season 27 will premiere Monday, September 24 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
