Bethany Mota Says Derek Hough Pushes Her To Do New Things

Bethany Mota Says Derek Hough Pushes Her To Do New Things

Bethany Mota and Derek Hough arrive at the studio together for dance practice in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (October 29).

The duo, who had the highest scoring dance on Dancing With The Stars earlier this week, are putting in their time for the next one.

“Probably to try new things. That’s why I wanted to do the competition. Because it scared me so much – performing live and everything – having him as a teacher, he really pushes me to do all of these things that don’t really come naturally to me,” Bethany recently dished to JJJ about having Derek for a partner.

She added, “Comparing now to my first rehearsal, I wasn’t as in control of my body as I am now. I wasn’t aware of things like my posture and having a strong core. And now they are things I do naturally thanks to him. He trained me to present myself that way.”

“This week, rehearsals are a bit more intense because we have two dances now. We have the team dance and then we also have our own dance,” Bethany told JJJ in a new interview. “We are doing the Paso Doble, which is very aggressive and really fast. So I’m sweating a lot (laughs). And our team dance is pretty fast too, so it’s just a lot of cardio, running around. I’m a little stressed because this is my first week having to do two dances.”

JustJaredJr: Let’s talk about last week’s dance first. You guys didn’t have much rehearsal time at all yet you did amazing! Were you nervous going in?

Bethany Mota: I was probably the least confident going into this previous week than I have ever been, just because we didn’t have a lot of time to rehearse. I didn’t have a lot of time to learn the dance or even perfect it. At camera blocking, I couldn’t even get through the routine. And also – this is the first time this has ever happened – right before we performed, because I was so nervous and unsure, for a second I forgot the entire routine. Once the music started, I got into it. We had a little slip, but you can barely see it. But once I heard the comments, I was so relieved. I had been worrying about it all week, so to get that amazing feedback was such a relief for me.
