Pro partner: Chelsie Hightower
Star power: Star of Disney Channel’s Shake It Up!
Why he’s on: “I did a nice little cameo appearance with my really good friend, Cody Linley, a couple of years ago when he was on. They said, ‘You’re awesome. We want to get you on the show.’”
How’s it going? “Training is great. Chelsie Hightower, she’s a great coach. She really knows how to work with me. We share a great energy. I’m lucky I got paired up with her.”
What hurts? “Everything hurts. Everything’s sore and stuff. She tells me that’s what’s supposed to happen.”
Any advantages? “My advantage is I’m a freestyle dancer. I don’t dance too much on Shake It Up!, but just being around dance and always staying active, in the groove, it helps.”
In his corner: “I’ve got my whole Shake It Up! cast. They always back me up. My family is definitely backing me up. And all my fans, they’re the best.”
