Mya’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Promo Photos

Mya poses with her dance partner Dmitry Chaplin in the cast/rehearsal photos for Season 9 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” airing September 21 at 8 p.m.

Mya’s manager has responded to critics who think she has an unfair advantage because of her dance background. “Let’s just clear the air though—Mya has never been trained in ballroom, salsa, etc.,” he told “The only training she received was in tap! Now I know she can tear up a dance floor on the hip-hop/pop scene, but this is a brand new ballgame for her.”
