Zendaya is preparing for her dancing debut on Dancing With The Stars next Monday. The Shake It Up star tweeted a photo of herself practicing with Valentin Chmerkovskiy on March 11.
The 16-year-old wrote via Instagram: “Team work makes the dream work!! @iamvalc #DWTS #Valdaya #doinourthizzle”
The duo’s first dance will be contemporary.
Wetpaint.com reports Val wrote in his blog, “I will most definitely do things differently. Zendaya and I have contemporary as our first dance. And it’s so funny because her mom came in after our meeting the next day and she said, ‘Hey, you know, I looked you up on YouTube and wanted to get a better idea of what a contemporary dance was all about, so I looked up the contemporary from last season. And yeah, it’s uh … very interesting!’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, you know, last time I did contemporary, half the nation got pregnant!’ So I’m probably going to tone it down with Zendaya and take a different route! Less about passion and more about inspiration!”
