Welsh opera star has high hopes for ‘Dancing’
Welsh opera star Katherine Jenkins may have a leg up on some of her “Dancing With the Stars” competitors: She’s already used to high heels.
The mezzo-soprano has been practicing for the show in London with professional partner Mark Ballas.
He said her preference for stilettos is an advantage because she is used to running around in shoes that are higher than ballroom shoes.
According to the Associated Press, the two were to fly to the U.S. Monday to join the other competitors, who include “Family Matters” actor Jaleel White, singer Gladys Knight and National Football League player Donald Driver.
Miss Jenkins and Mr. Ballas deny rumors they are romantically linked off the dance floor.
Miss Jenkins said: “We knew each other for just 12 hours, and in the press it is we are now dating.”
The new season of “Dancing With The Stars” starts Monday on ABC.
