"When I’m talking to those dancers and I can relate first hand, I know the moves that they are doing, I know what’s happening on stage," she continued. "I’m one with the performance… it feels at home for me. It doesn’t feel like just a gig, you know what I mean?"

"Oh man, he’s super talented," she told OK! "He’s working on his music, his dancing, his dad actually was a part of Rock Steady Dance Crew, and so he’s trying to figure out from close friends in hip hop and that who can help him pretty much remember who his dad was since my brother’s dad passed before he was born. So, it was a pretty tough situation and it’s unfortunate, however, he is one of the most optimistic people not only on the show but just in life."
