Amanda Kloots Brings ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Partner Alan Bersten to Charity Fitness Class
Dancing with the Stars contestant Amanda Kloots is hosting a dance fitness class this weekend, and she’ll be joined by her partner Alan Bersten. To make it even cooler, they’ll be donating all the proceeds from the class to charity.
You probably know Kloots as a co-host on The Talk, but she also has her own fitness brand, where she hosts exercise classes. It’s no wonder she’s been such a strong competitor on Dancing with the Stars.
Amanda Kloots, Alan Bersten to Host Fitness Class for Charity
Kloots posted a clip of her and Bersten doing jumping jacks on Instagram. She told fans that Bersten will be joining her for her AK! Dance class this Saturday, October 30. The 50-minute virtual cardio class will start at 9 am PT. You can book a spot for $25 here.
Kloots also shared that she will be donating all the proceeds from the class to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She told fans that “we need you to sign up for class so we can raise a lot of money for the children!”
The talk show host has proven herself to be a frontrunner on Season 30 of Dancing with the Stars. She and Bersten received a score of 38 out of 40 for their recent Horror Night performance — an Argentine Tango inspired by Saw. Bersten previously won Season 28 with Hannah Brown.
How Much Dance Experience Does Kloots Have?
You might find it interesting that Kloots is teaching dance classes while competing on Dancing with the Stars against celebrities who have never danced before. Kloots does, in fact, have more dance experience than a lot of contestants on the show.
Not only does she teach fitness classes that often include dance workouts, but she also danced on Broadway. Kloots was part of the ensemble of several musicals, including Follies and Young Frankenstein. She met her late husband, Nick Cordero, while working on Bullets Over Broadway. She was also a member of the Rockettes.
She’s not the only contestant on Season 30 who’s danced in the past. However, not all dancing is the same. As Kloots herself explained, “Ballroom dancing and Broadway dancing — the Broadway dancing that I used to do — are honestly like English and Japanese. I am learning a completely new language.”
