During tonight’s premiere of Dancing with the Stars, singer/actor Jordan Fisher will be hitting the dance floor with pro partner Lindsay Arnold to compete in the 25th season of ABC’s hit dance show — and Jordan couldn’t be happier about the partner he’s been given for this new adventure.
“Lindsay is incredible,” Jordan said about his new partner in an interview with Hollywood Life. “I definitely have the best partner. She’s just figured out a way with her vet on the show to cultivate the perfect rehearsal environment. She’s fun, she’s so truly herself, and kind and warm.”
“I’m going into this process with no ballroom experience,” he continued. “I’m going into a room with a complete pro who is going to teach me how to do this for 15 million people every week. That should be a super scary thing! I am a perfectionist. I want it to be the best I can possibly do and the best thing people can potentially see. That could go a handful of different ways, but we really have fun, because she has allowed the space and the rehearsal environment to be a safe place. I can learn, I can fail, I can make mistakes, I hopefully can get better and grow.”
As for now, Jordan says: “I think the toughest part thus far for me is to put myself in a position where I am OK with not being great at it at first. Every week we’re going to be doing a different style, which for me, is a style that I’ve never done before — tango, foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, jive, whatever that is, I’ve never done these before so I have to be OK with not being great at it at first.”
Jordan and Lindsay will be performing a tango tonight to Shawn Mendes‘ There’s Nothing Holding Me Back. Be sure to tune into ABC at 8PM ET tonight (Sept. 18) to catch his performance!
