Amy Purdy Talks Making Mistakes on 'DWTS'

Amy Purdy Talks Making Mistakes on 'DWTS'

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough head out of the dance studio after a full day of practice in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon (April 25).

The Dancing With The Stars team are learning two dances this week — the team dance and another latin one.

“Only a second or two. I’m certainly aware when we make a mistake. Sometimes the audience doesn’t even notice (but I always do) and sometimes they might, like last night, but within a second my mind has moved on to what’s next,” Amy shared in her LA Times Q&A.

Amy added, “That’s definitely a skill that I’ve honed through my snowboarding career. No run down a mountain is ever perfect, there’s always something that could have been better, but you’ve got to stay focused on what’s coming vs. what’s behind you. That said, you may have noticed that the minute our dance ended last night both Derek and I instantly when back to that section of the dance to get it right. Of course we’re both a little disappointed that we had a little bobble, especially because that particular area was never an issue in practice but the jive is such a tough, fast moving dancing with so much footwork that I’m really happy we nailed the rest of the performance and of course that we had fun.”
