I think his boy band experience probably did help him when it came to the Latin/Jive dances. His experience with learning footwork and moving to music went beyond what many of the others had, but it probably wasn't as extensive as some would like to believe.Originally Posted by Melsevene;2427095;
To paraphrase what Bearcata said, being in a boy band is sort of like being on the dance squad (or maybe in the case of NSYNC like being a professional cheerleader). They are good dancer/movers, but the repertoire is limited.
As for the ballroom dances, I don't think his experience gave him any great advantage over any dancers who didn't have two left feet.
