Peta Murgatroyd Explains How She's Teaching Deaf Model Nyle DiMarco to Dance on 'DWTS'
“Nyle has absolutely made me a better teacher,” the 29-year-old dancer told People. “I have to be very careful to explain myself so well and make sure that the words I am using to describe things are very clear.”
“I mean, he is a smart guy. It’s not like I have to dumb anything down,” Peta continued. “But if I want him to put his foot on the floor, I have to show him how to do it. I can’t just tell him, ‘Be strong with the leg.’ I have to describe what I want.”
“You could be America’s Next Top Dancer. Unbelievable,” judge Bruno Tonioli raved after Nyle‘s dance debut.
