WWE Superstar Fandango's orginal dance partner is featured in a new article by Buffalo News. The 20-year-old dancer's name is Andrea Lynn, and she teaches at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio. Andrea spoke on the major differences between ballroom dance and the WWE production:
"Usually for ballroom stuff, everyone is in glitter and sparkles and fancy costumes. Everyone, when you go to a ballroom event, is in some sort of formal attire. Backstage at Wrestlemania, however, the guys are in sweats and T-shirts – it wasn’t the same type of show that I was used to.”
Not suprisingly, the dancer wasn't even a professional wrestling fan when called upon by WWE to accompany Fandango to the ring.
“I actually had no idea who anyone was. I mean, I was aware of it. Like, I know who Hulk Hogan is and Andre the Giant is and stuff like that. But my family was never really into that. We were more of a theater, music, dance-type family.”
