Nancy O'Dell's First 'Dancing' Dance: The Waltz

She’s still a few weeks away from making her “Dancing With the Stars” debut, but Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell has already got her first dance lined up.

Nancy and professional partner Tony Dovolani will take on the waltz for their first dance together – and Nancy is gearing up for the challenge.

“I think the waltz is the toughest one to start with because it is supposed to be very formal and proper and, therefore, feels rigid,” Nancy said. “Plus, there is so much to think about when you are doing it!”

And if enduring the grueling practice sessions each day, besides hosting Access, wasn’t enough – she’s trying to learn a dance she’s never tried before.

“I have never waltzed before because I have never danced before – period!” Nancy added.

Catch Nancy’s dancing debut when the new season of “Dancing With the Stars” bows on March 9 on ABC.
