Lindsey Stirling Was Terrified At First To Work With Pro Derek Hough – New Interview

Lindsey Stirling mentions Derek and working with him in a new My Fox Zone interview. I can’t embed it, but, you can watch it at the link. Below is a quote too….

Stirling isn’t just showing off her signature fiddle talent. In one of her latest videos, “The Arena,” the self-taught dancer shows off her moves too!

“I was so excited for that video, to get to learn some ballroom, and I’m going to try to get something new, stretch myself and push myself in a way that’s a little uncomfortable and terrifying — dancing with a professional dancer like Derek Hough and trying to look like I know what I’m doing. But it was so fun and I was so happy with it.”

ETA: She talks on Derek in this interview too at the 4:00 minute mark. Thanks to Abby for the heads up.
