Three new pro-dancers join the cast this season. With two Olympians and one NFL Super Bowl superstar as just a few of the celebrities dancing this season, the energy level should be high. These folks are familiar with work outs that last all day long, so dancing in a competition should be a piece of cake for them as far as mustering up the stamina.
As far as gracefully learning the dance steps, well that’s another story. It will be interesting to see how these sports stars take to the intricate dance moves needed for success on “Dancing with the Stars.”
With the country music stars, they are used to learning the dance steps for their music videos, but they might not be used to the grueling practices, which for sure would wear the average person out.
