Memories From The Season… So Far
First Published: May 16, 2013 8:00 PM EDT Credit:
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – Tuesday was crazy… the thought that this experience could have been over, really got me thinking. I know that I put everything I have into this competition, so I definitely would have held my head high, but I would have been heartbroken!
I am beyond thankful that my fans, and everyone else who voted for Val and I, pulled us through to the finals. I am sorry that our quickstep didn’t meet up with perfection, but I promise you, I gave it my all.
Our hip-hop routine has to be one of the highlights of this season for me. Although it was a style that I know, our choreo was complicated and it took a lot of time to master, and I was very proud of our end result. I am thankful to my first dance teacher, who you all met through the TV, Kim Sims-Battiste for helping us.
As I look back on this experience, I will take away many great memories. I remember when I first met Val and thought, he’s kinda short! lol But I hold Val in the highest of regard and I have learned so much from him. First and foremost is his dedication to his craft. Tuesday night for example, when everyone was at a party celebrating the 300th episode, he was at the gym cooking up our next routine! He is a perfectionist down to every movement and how you feel it from your core to your fingertips. #LINK#

Zendaya’s Dancing With The Stars Blog — Conquering The Argentine Tango

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – PHEWWW!! I am so glad the Argentine Tango is over! That dance was stressful and dramatic and just a whole lot of work. By the time Saturday had rolled around I pretty much thought in my mind, “Oh well, I will just do my best and whatever happens, happens. At least I know I have given it my all!” I still was nervous about the lifts and tricks and I didn’t know how well our story would come across. I guess the crowd’s energy, excitement and live show just kicked in and everything magically came together…I am very proud of the final dance! #LINK#
