Supermodel Joanna Krupa's appearance on recent U.S. talent show Dancing With The Stars helped the stunner live out her childhood dance dreams.
The sexy star finished fourth in the competition but she was a winner in her own mind because the show gave her the chance to pick up where she left off as a budding ballerina.
She explains, "I took ballet when I was five to nine and then my mom didn't have money, so I had to quit."
And she admits she exceeded her own expectations on the show: "My partner, at the beginning, said I was like a plank of wood... The first two weeks of rehearsals... he wasn't very happy."
Singer Donny Osmond won the competition last week (ends27Nov09).
