After performing her two routines on DANCING WITH THE STARS last night, Kelly Monaco (Sam, GENERAL HOSPITAL) wasn’t feeling very confident despite the high scores that the judges gave her. “Could have done better,” she told Soaps In Depth after the taping, “but that’s okay.
“I enjoyed both for different reasons,” Monaco added. “I worked really hard for the Viennese waltz, and I think I improved tremendously from when we started on Tuesday to tonight. I’m satisfied with my performance.”
The actress also says that doing the trio dance with partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy and professional dancer and choreographer Louis van Amstel was an amazing experience. “The trio was just a blast,” she enthused. “I had so much fun. That’s what I’m here to do.”
And while Monaco is grateful to have her GH castmates as well as other friends sitting in the DANCING audience for her performances, she knows who’s really keeping her going. “I know that fans are supporting us as well,” she said. “If they could be in the audience every week, they would. I feel that. I know that stepping out on the floor.
“When I see those cameras pass by I see all their faces,” Monaco continued. “I know a lot of their faces and I interact with them on Twitter and whatever social media outlets [there are]. I feel like I’m looking at all their faces when I’m out there.”
Hopefully the fans voted enough to keep Monaco dancing for another round!
