Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Carmelo Pizzino is back home teaching what he does best after a celebrity-packed experience in front of the camera.

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.�

Pizzino said he was loving teaching students in his home town 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 of being the show, Pizzino said that it was all about his dancing partners.

�I got to dance with 10 beautiful women,� he said.

�I speak to 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.�
