Mark Ballas & Mom Shirley Get Their Dance On At 'What's Your Why' Smoke Swap Event

Mark Ballas & Mom Shirley Get Their Dance On At 'What's Your Why' Smoke Swap Event

Mark Ballas poses with his mom Shirley at the What’s Your Why? Smoke Swap event in Times Square, New York City on Wednesday afternoon (May 27).

The 29-year-old pro dancer and Shirley, also a pro dancer, showed off their dancing skills at the event and also offered tips to quit smoking, having both been smokers themselves.

“I was very inspired as a child by my mom. So when I put my mind towards quitting smoking, I knew she was going to be the best support and partner. It was the right choice for both of us and we did it together,” Mark shared in a statement.

Shirley added, “Mark is my world. I would do anything for him – even quitting smoking. When he asked me to do this with him, I couldn’t say yes fast enough, but there are still times I struggle with cravings. When that happens, I remind myself of my “why” – being there for Mark and my future grandchildren – and it gives me the strength to remain smoke-free.”

For the “What’s Your Why” campaign, adult smokers are encouraged to share and celebrate who or what motivates them to quit – their “why.”
