Backstage at Dancing With the Stars: Jennifer Grey Finds Dancing Joy Again

Jennifer Grey, who out-performed the other contestants on Dancing With the Stars for the second week in a row, says she has finally overcome her Dirty Dancing problem.

"I said I wanted to be an actress when I was a kid," explains Grey, the daughter of celebrated singer, dancer and actor Joel Grey. "And my parents said, 'Well, you can take dance class and you can take singing lessons.' And that's all they'd let me do. And I'd say, 'Can't I audition?' And they'd say, 'Nope, not until you get out of high school.'"

Grey's only outlet as a child performer, she says, was Saturday ballet class. "And then as an adult, for exercise, I would look for a fun dance class. But once I got Dirty Dancing, I never took a class again. I was too self-conscious. Everyone was going to expect me to be [her character] Baby. And I was not."
