Ballroom dance teacher Ken Howard works with disabled dancers and he says Mills prosthetic leg shouldnt hold her from stepping all over the competition when the new season debuts March 19 on ABC.
He says since its Mills left leg thats amputated she will have no problem taking the lead since thats the right foots job.
Howard also says if she starts to falter, she can use her strong male partner as a crutch to get back on her feet.
However, he admits it might be difficult for Mills to pick out dance shoes, especially if she dances in a sports prosthetic, which is longer and not as realistic looking as an everyday fake leg.
Mills should also brush up on her salsa because the fast music and quick moves could be harder on her than the other dancers.
However, Howard predicts Mills will excel at the foxtrot because the moves are slower, giving her brain time to process the moves.
