Amanda Kloots is channeling her energy in dance.
Amanda Kloots is partnered with Alan Bersten for the 30th season of Dancing with the Stars. Speaking to her partner in their first meeting, the 39-year-old shared how the show is her step back in life after her husband Nick Cordero's death.
"I grew up dancing, I did Broadway for 17 years and then everything that happened to me, the pandemic and losing my husband, this opportunity is kind of a way to find myself again and to feel his presence every day," she tearfully told Bersten.
"On July 5, 2020, I lost my husband from repercussions of COVID. I miss him every single day. I miss every single part of him," she said. "If Nick could've said anything to me before he passed, he would've looked at me right in the eye and said you better not stop living. You better keep going."
Nick passed aways in July 2020 after a serious battle with COVID-19.
