Heather Morris, 30, is set to be a contestant on season 24 of Dancing with the stars. The one edge that Morris has over her competition is that she is already a skilled dancer, with her past work including being a backup dancer for Beyoncé’s tour and concert film The Beyoncé Experience Live. Morris was also a contestant on So You Think You Can Dance and played a dancer in the film Bedtime Stories.
However, many fans recognize Morris for her work as Brittney Pierce on the hit FOX TV show Glee. Morris played the character for the full run of the show, which aired its final episode in 2015. With her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 37, Morris will put her skills to test and will try to dance her way to the top and become this season’s winner.
