Teaching at The Performance Company Morley, Pizzino said although he was missing the show already, he was happy to be back in Perth.
�I am missing the show, especially after seeing Bindi win, but it was time to move on,� he said.
�Settling in to Perth took a little while. I remember getting off the plane with seven suitcases thinking what am I doing?
�But it is the best choice I�ve made and I�m absolutely loving it.�
The Highgate resident said he was loving teaching students in his hometown and was particularly enjoying teaching bridal couples, who were perfecting dances for their special day.
�They�re doing some crazy stuff out there,� he said.
�They�re doing costume changes, we�ve done James Bond themes, the whole Dirty Dancing thing, we are doing flash mobs and I�m really enjoying creating that moment with the couples.�
As for his favourite memories on the show, Pizzino said it was all about his dancing partners.
�I got to dance with 10 beautiful women,� he said. �I speak some of them on a daily basis and one of my biggest moments on the show was dancing with Lynne McGranger – she was an absolute star. The show is not about being the best dancer for me.
�I don�t care if I get a partner who can�t dance as long as they give you 110 per cent and they want to do it and Lynne, Kylie Gillies and Kerri-Anne Kennerley were just devoted to the show.
�It was special for them, which made it special for us.�
