erin andrews darrins dance grooves 'Dancing With the Stars' Erin Andrews grooves in Darrin's Dance Grooves infomercialSo this is where “Dancing With the Stars” Top 5 contestant Erin Andrews got her start!

Actually, Erin Andrews got her start dancing much earlier. She was a Dazzler, the Florida Gators basketball dance squad, from 1997-2000. But before she was ESPN’s sideline princess, Erin got her groove on to Darrin’s Dance Grooves.

Darrin Henson was a dancer on “Club MTV” and went on to choreograph videos for Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, *NSync, Usher, Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez. He put out this instructional video in 2001 (we actually remember this) and “Dancing With the Stars” own Erin Andrews was one of the people featured. Hilarious!

Dancing talent must run in the Andrews family, as Erin’s sister Kendra was recently a dancer in the 2010 Academy Awards broadcast.
