Singer and actress, Mya, recently talked with Marc Malkin of E! News about her training for Dancing With The Stars.Â Considering last year broke a record for injuries on the show, Mya expressed some concerns about previous injuries she has had and the potential problems they might cause.Â Keep reading for information on this and more…
“I fractured my foot last year,” Mya told E! News.Â ”My doctor said I’m fully healed because it’s the bone. But now I have to make sure my tendons are strong enough…But I was pretraining before this, just doing cardio and stretching, so we’ll see how it goes.”
“High expectations are really intimidating,” she said of the rumors that she will make it to the finals. “This is such a different kind of dance. It’s not like the [music] videos.”
Of her first dance, the Viennese Waltz, she said,”It’s very discouraging.”Â “It looks wonderful; it looks easy. But it really isn’t. There’s so much to think about at once, and then not stepping on your partner’s feet!”Â However, she added that her partner is very patient with her.
Dancing With The StarsÂ kicks off Monday, September 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC..
