If you have ever watched “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC Television, you would agree the program is exciting. The audience never knows what to expect as the stars perform some of the most beautiful dances designed by famous chorographers.
These complex routines are sometimes dangerous as with their previous accident. Witney Carson, breakout dancer, showed her talent competing in 3 seasons, winning first place with “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” partner Alfonso Ribeiro and will return for “Dancing with the Stars” 21st season, Monday, September 14th.
Witney is now touring across the US with the “Dancing with the Stars Live Tour”.
Born and raised in the small town American Fork, Utah, Witney’s dreams growing up wereanything but small. The oldest of four children she took her first dance class at the age of three and danced her way through dozens upon dozens of classes quickly developing her craft which would later become her career.
She is trained in dance styles including ballet, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, lyrical, tap, Latin and standard ballroom and has competed and performed all over the world garnering attention, awards and scholarships throughout her career.
Before “Dancing with the Stars,” Carson was one of the top three women on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and returned the following season as an all-star. Her credits on “DWTS” quickly grew from a troupe dancer in seasons 16 & 17 to a pro dancer in season 18 with partner Cody Simpson, and winner of season 19 with partner Alfonso Ribeiro making her one of only 5 dancers in the history of the show to win in their first two seasons.
Her third season was a memorable one with ups and downs with former “Bachelor” star Chris Soules and her fourth is no doubt going to be another hit for this young performer. As a melanoma survivor herself, Witney lends her time and voice to various children’s organizations and skin cancer charities, spreading awareness and educating youth through her own experiences. If you like surprises, music and dancing, I suggest you watch “So You Think You Can Dance”.
