Britt Stewart talks about her career and what part Derek Hough and Mandy Moore played for her to be on DWTS

Britt Stewart is a member of DWTS Troupe since Season 23 and few days back, she talked to Kristyn Birtt about her career and how she reached where she is today. It’s an amazing interview!

When she is asked about how she became involved with DWTS, she has a story to tell that includes Derek and Mandy Moore. You can read the except below but, be sure to read the whole interview on Dance Network. It worth it!

Thanks Kristyn for sending this!

How did you become involved with DWTS? I know everyone has a different story about they became a part of the show.

About a year ago, Derek Hough was hosting the Disneyland 60th anniversary and Mandy Moore was choreographing the opening number. Witney Carson was partnering with Derek and she missed a few days of rehearsal because she was on her honeymoon. We were filming the rehearsal so Mandy could send it to the Disney/ABC executives for approval. Out of nowhere, she looked at me and said, “Britt, at the end of the ballroom section, dance with Derek.”

From there, I believe that’s how DWTS noticed me. For Mandy to do that, I am so grateful. Then producers reached out to my agent and had me do an audition with an on-camera interview and I learned a Latin routine and performed a solo of my choice.

A season went by and then they asked me to come on before Season 23. It was so last minute, I remember signing my contract on the way to the rehearsal for the opening number. It came out of nowhere. I know they were interested in me for Season 22, but it didn’t work out. I thought maybe my time had passed.
