Latin Actor Hopes To Bring Fire Back To Dance Floor

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One new Dancing With The Stars contender hopes to master the romance of dance.

Actor Cristian De La Fuente – who got his start on television shows in his native Chile, and has crossed over into American shows and films like Driven, The Class, and CSI: Miami – is one of the celebrities competing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars.

De La Fuente is paired up with two-time champion dancer Cheryl Burke, and is excited about learning the art of dance.

He explains, “When my grandma and mom went to school [in Chile] they learned math, English, and dance. They appreciated the beauty and romance of dancing. Now, people just go to the club, bump around on the dance floor, and that’s it. The romanticism is gone, but I’m ready to learn dancing the real way.”

De La Fuente is currently learning the ins and outs of the Cha-Cha during daily rehearsals with Burke, but the dance he’s most excited to conquer is the Tango.

He says, “Tango is such a sexy, powerful dance. I’m going to bring my flavor to the dance floor, and we’ll see if that flavor has rhythm!”

The new season of Dancing With The Stars premieres March 17 on ABC.
