Cheryl Burke weighs in on her dancing mishap last night with William Levy and Melissa Gilbert's injury!
First of all, 75% of our Jive took place with one shoe on. It is basically is what happened to Kirstie Alley that one time when her foot came out. That’s what happened to me during the Jive.
In my head, I am thinking, "Do I stop and buckle my shoe or do I keep going through with it?" I just had to keep going and go through with it because you never know. My shoe could have flopped somewhere else. I had to hold on to it with grip just to keep the shoe on. The Jive has got such fast pace, there is no time to stop because were are constantly moving. But accidents happen, and you just have to move on.
Tonight was just not good. I guess some stuff just happens. I don’t think there is going to be a next week, but we’ll find out. It is Latin week so it will be hopefully his week. And if we make it through, we will have the Argentinean tango which is really sexy and should be good for him.
At the end of the day, instead of stopping we just had to keep on going regardless.
As for Melissa, I danced right after her. I know she had some problems with her head and I hope she is okay.
To prevent injuries, you just really have to take care of yourself and stretch and make sure you rehearse through out so you know what to expect. But with stuff like this with my shoe coming out, I could have had an injury and my ankle could have been sprained. You just have to keep going, it’s a live show.
