It’s the sixth week of Dancing with the Stars or as Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez says, “It’s halfway through the competition.” This week is Latin week and Laurie and her professional dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy have a salsa to perform “with major lasers to light it up.” While Laurie is excited about the salsa and lasers, she also admits that “Val was trying to get my hips moving yesterday – they were cracking!” Val told the 16-year-old that ‘they’re rusty’ to which Laurie said, ‘yeah, I don’t move my hips like that.’
That said, Laurie says “they’re moving a lot better” now. “I have to channel my inner Puerto Rican. I haven’t done that in a while,” says Hernandez. Dancng with the Stars airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
