The pair danced the Salsa for Latin Week and raked in a near perfect score of 39 out of 40 points!
“It’s definitely an adjustment,” Meryl recently told U.S. News about dancing on the floor versus the ice. “I think the mechanics of movement are a little different – we’re used to taking a push and moving a certain amount of space, and what we’ve been accustomed to on the ice is certainly very different from what we’re doing on the floor. It’s been a big adjustment, but we have amazing teachers so we’re doing the best we can.”
She added, “And we’ll absolutely be able to apply what we’re learning to the ice. From the different styles of dance to just performance, we’ll take it with us in the future – whether it’s on the ice or off.”
