According to Us Weekly, Cheryl Burke and Cody Rigsby will be participating in “Dancing With the Stars” in a fashion reminiscent of the pandemic’s early days: virtually. Burke and Rigsby will dance and record their routine remotely and separately. Per the outlet, Burke appeared on “Good Morning America” on October 1 to show off how she transformed her living room for the occasion. “Look at that,” she said. “I’ve turned our living room into a ballroom.”
After Monday’s episode, Burke and Rigsby spoke with Us Weekly and other outlets through Zoom, speculating on how the competition may move forward. Burke was determined to persevere, refusing to let COVID-19 stop her. “We still have to do a cha cha, obviously, and we need to represent the challenge which is cha cha content,” she said. “But there’s a lot where we are using the whole floor, like, the whole ballroom for sure.” She continued, “I’m gonna be the ultimate ‘Dance Mom’ right over here [from home]. I’m really good at it, it comes naturally.” Good luck to Cheryl and Cody!
