Lindsay Arnold Dishes What It's Really Like For DWTS Pros (Exclusive)

Lindsay Arnold Dishes What It's Really Like For DWTS Pros (Exclusive)

Every season, we look forward to seeing which celebs will be competing on Dancing With The Stars, and even more — getting a little peak into rehearsals to see just what goes on.

But, we hardly ever think about the pro dancers.

Which is why when we talked to Lindsay Arnold, who’s been a pro now for __ seasons, she gave us some insight.

“Growing up I trained every single day for at least 5 hours,” she revealed to us. “Now on DWTS we practice at least 5 hours sometimes even 10.”

But what really goes on inside that practice room, besides having those cameras tape everything?

“It is definitely a 24/7 type of job because as a pro even when you aren’t rehearsing, you are either thinking about choreography, costumes, music, or flying on a plane to train with your partner,” she says, adding, “In my case that’s most of the time.”

Lindsay adds, “There is so much that goes into the show but that’s what makes it so rewarding! You put in so much work and when things go as planned it is truly such a huge pay off.”

Lindsay Arnold Really Wants Zac Efron on 'Dancing With The Stars'

Lindsay Arnold Really Wants Zac Efron on 'Dancing With The Stars'

When we think about our dream cast list for Dancing With The Stars, Zac Efron is always in our minds, but a really wild suggestion — but turns out, he’s on Lindsay Arnold‘s too.

But Zac isn’t the only A-lister on there.

Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth, and Zac Efron for obvious reasons,” Lindsay told JJJ exclusively.

Another on her dream cast list? “Rob Gronkowski. I feel like he has such a fun personality and he is an athlete and I have loved working with athletes.”

GMA host Michael Strahan too. “He has such a great personality and every time we go to GMA for the DWTS cast announcement he dances around with us and definitely has rhythm. I hope he wants in on the action soon.”

We also chatted with Lindsay about former pros who have left the show and which ones she’d love to return one day.

“I watched every season of DWTS up until being hired for the show and I truly mean it when I say that every single pro who has been on the show has inspired me in some way,” Lindsay says.

“It was so fun having Kym [Johnson-Herjavec] back this season and Cheryl [Burke] back last season they both have taught me so much and have always been so incredibly kind to me.”

Heather Morris Joins 'DWTS: Hot Summer Nights' Tour For July!

Heather Morris Joins 'DWTS: Hot Summer Nights' Tour For July!

Heather Morris is stepping in for Rashad Jennings on the DWTS: Hot Summer Nights tour.

The actress will be taking over for season 24 champ Rashad, as he takes the month of July off for football training.

“Rashad has been loving the tour so far and will be focusing on football for the month of July,” his rep dished to ET. “He plans rejoin the tour on August 1.”

It looks like Heather is so happy to join the fun, too!

“Get ready! I’m back! Can’t wait to join the #DWTStour July 9th-30th. Get your tickets now @dancingabc,” she captioned a post on Instagram.

Just after she was voted off the last season, Heather expressed interest in joining the tour.

“I would personally love to [do the tour],” she shared then. I’m not against it, and I would really love to just dance on the stage one more time because [Maksim Chmerkovskiy and I] only had two shows where we got to actually dance together, which was really disappointing.”

Get ready! Im back! Can't wait to join the #DWTStour July 9th-30th. Get your tickets now ???????? @dancingabc

JJJ sat down with the pro dancer to chat about almost everything and we got the scoop on the new tour, which starts TOMORROW in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“This is by far one of the most fun and energetic tours I have been a part of,” Lindsay told us. “It’s My first summer tour and we are definitely bringing the heat and capturing all the happiness that summertime brings.”

She also shared what it’s been like having season 24 winner Rashad Jennings in rehearsals for the shows.

Normani Kordei Isn't Mad That Rashad Jennings Won DWTS

Normani Kordei Isn't Mad That Rashad Jennings Won DWTS

Normani Kordei is truly the full package — she’s gracious, talented and her sportsmanship is possibly the best in the business.

The Fifth Harmony singer wasn’t one bit made that Rashad Jennings took home the Dancing With The Stars mirrored-ball trophy instead of her.

“I’m proud,” Normani told ET after the show. “That’s, like, my big brother.

She adds, “He’s worked his butt off. I think that any one of us would have been deserving so kudos to him!”

“You’re never really guaranteed,” she shared about her third-place finish.

“It was quite a shocker for me as well, but I’ve gained so much from this experience. I’m so happy, and I can’t even begin to express you know the gratitude that I carry and the blessing especially because I have a lifelong friend now [in partner Val Chmerkovskiy].”

Normani is amazing!

DWTS Winner Rashad Jennings Has Amazing Plans For His Mirrored-Ball Trophy

DWTS Winner Rashad Jennings Has Amazing Plans For His Mirrored-Ball Trophy

Rashad Jennings just literally won the mirrored-ball trophy for Dancing With The Stars season 24 — but he already has huge plans for the award.

“I’ve already figured this out,” he admitted during his Good Morning America interview (via USA Today) with Emma Slater. “Over the fireplace.”

But it isn’t just going to sit on the fireplace mantle — “There’s going to be some light shining on it. It’s going to rotate and it’s going to play every single song, in the background, that we danced to.”


We’re going to need to see videos and pictures of this now!

Check out their interview, alongside David Ross and Lindsay Arnold, and Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy below!
