GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- "Dancing with the Stars" starts in one week, and one of this season's contestants was in Grand Rapids Sunday, practicing his moves.
Gavin DeGraw spent several hours in the Social Dance Studio in Standale, working with his partner Karina Smirnoff. Show producers would not allow our cameras into the studio, but it's the same place where former contestant Evan Lysacek rehearsed with his partner two years ago.
DeGraw, who was actually in town to perform at The Intersection, says he has no background in dancing, but he's working at it every day.
"The closest I ever had to a dance lesson was I helped park cars at a night club when I was about 16," he admitted. "I'm trying to get it together, you know, all these weird body movements. Posture is a big deal apparently."
The new season of "Dancing with the Stars" premieres March 19 on WZZM 13.
