The 25-year-old actress recently opened up about her experience so far, leading up to next week’s big premiere.
“We are doing the jive this week, and my body’s kind of working against everything that I learned in my dance classes,” Janel wrote in her People blog. “Everything that my instincts want to do is not correct for the jive. Eventually, I think my instincts will be correct with certain dances.”
She added, “My first dance contains an ode to Pretty Little Liars. If I get it right, which I think I will because Val‘s going to whip me into shape, it’s going to be explosive.”
