Dancing With the Stars has always sparked controversy when they announce a new cast each season. But this year, High School Musical Alum, Corbin Bleu, is being called out by fans of the reality show for his vast experience as a dancer. He even performed in the finale of Season 13 of the ABC dancing competition…
…but not as a contestant!
Corbin Bleu was brought into to do a feature performance, written and choreographed by High School Musical’s Kenny Ortega for the Macy’s Stars of Dance. But his dance experience does not stop at Disney movies. Corbin attended the Debbie Allen Dance Academy and has even performed on Broadway. Does this give him an unfair advantage over contestants without dance experience like Jack Osborn, Leah Remini or Bill Nye?
But Corbin is not the only contestant this season that had years of dance experience long before rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars began. Elizabeth Berkley shot to fame on the Saturday morning staple, Saved by the Bell, but she became notorious for showing off her dance moves in the cult classic Showgirls in 1995. While campaigning for her role as a stripper, she said, “I was blessed enough to have parents that got me into dance from a very young age. It’s been a profound thing in my life”.
Former pop star, Christina Milian, is also causing a stir with her dance experience.
Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, September 16 at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT on ABC
