DWTS' Jenna Johnson Shatters This Pre-Conceived Thought About Dancers

DWTS' Jenna Johnson Shatters This Pre-Conceived Thought About Dancers

When you watch Dancing With the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance, or any other dance show, you tend to think that all the dancers have this confidence that you can’t even imagine of achieving.

However, you’d be wrong — take it from Jenna Johnson, who’s been on both shows.

Speaking with Bella New York magazine, Jenna opened up about the stigmas that dancers face and confidence is one of them. Not all dancers have the same confidence levels.

“I think people automatically assume that as dancers we have insane amounts of confidence,” she states. “Maybe because on camera we exude that type of energy, but if you were to meet us in real life it would be very different.”

Jenna adds, “Unless you know me well, I tend to be very introverted and shy. I have mounds of self confidence issues. Fortunately, I’ve been able to use dance as a way to break out of my shell.

“It’s always been my safe-place and where I have felt my most confident and free.”

Friendship Friday: Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson & Witney Carson Bond Over 'The Bachelor'

Friendship Friday: Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson & Witney Carson Bond Over 'The Bachelor'

Sometimes, you don’t remain friends with the people you grew up with.

Maybe someone moves, or you just have different interests and grow apart — but then, sometimes they do and that’s exactly the case with Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson and Witney Carson.

The three Dancing With The Stars dancers have known each other since their grade school days, and for Jenna and Lindsay, since kindergarten.

“Jenna and I danced at the same studio when we were both in kindergarten and immediately became friends,” Lindsay told us recently. “We didn’t go to the same school but had play dates almost every day after dance.”

The two met Witney a little later on: “Witney came to the studio we were at when we were 8 years old and we became friends through dance as well.”

“It’s been so amazing to have her in my life here and at home in Utah,” Lindsay adds about her lifelong friendship with Jenna. “It’s nice to have that someone from back home to experience this with.”

And when the three have some time to hang out, you bet their doing nothing but watching reality television and doing everything that best friends do.

“When we have the time, we’re always watching movies and favorite TV shows together which means The Bachelor,” Lindsay laughs. “And, of course, just chilling in sweats and girl talk.”

Watch all three of them on DWTS this Monday!
