Matching celebs and pros to create the right chemistry on Dancing With the Stars is no random task, says Deena Katz, senior producer of the show. She has been doing it for 12 seasons.
“It’s all about height first,” Katz tells us. “Then I start matching personalities.” The goal? “Trying to make the best situation. They’re scared. They’re worried. The professional partner has to be choreographer, mentor and teacher.”
