Local Teen Dancing For The Stars
A local teen's dance moves are giving her an opportunity to meet big celebrities. Maria Papakonstantinou has been dancing since she was 3-years-old. Two years ago, she began learning ballroom dancing. She says it was Dancing With The Stars that motivated her to sign up.
Her dance coach John King says she has natural talent. Together the two have won several national competitions and along the way she's been able to meet several cast members from the hit show.
"For me now when I watch it's like I can do that. I know that step. Oh she's doing an underarm turn. So for me it's always exciting to watch because it's something I'm a part of as well," said Papakonstantinou.
Monday was part one of the Dancing With The Stars finale. Tuesday night a winner will be crowned.
