“On to the JIVE #shawnough #dwts #DWTSAllStars @derekhough,” the 20-year-old athlete tweeted from rehearsals the day after.
“Next week we have the jive and I can already see that Derek has crazy things planned,” Shawn told TODAY. “He saw the competition on Monday and instantly had a fire lit in him. We are going for another very high-energy fun dance and hopefully one that stands out on top!”
She added about the chemistry between her and Derek, “Getting me to come out of my shell and show emotion is difficult for me, and he’s really been working on that since day one. He’s been telling me over and over to just let go and have fun. Technique aside it’s about the showmanship and connection between him and I. He’s a great teacher and partner, and I can’t wait to see what he pushes me to do next week!”
