The Situation Trains for ‘DWTS’ (VIDEO)

The Situation took a “breather” from his eight hour Dancing with the Stars rehearsal to give the circling paparazzi a sneak peak at a few of his dance moves and to talk about his aspirations for ballroom success in anticipation of the show’s premiere.

His snazzy black dance shoes certainly wouldn’t cut it on Jersey Shore, but Sitch is not too embarrassed to strut for photographers.

His partner for the season will be Karina Smirnoff, five-time U.S. National Ballroom Champion. TMZ reports the two will tango to “Break Your Heart” during the show’s first episode tonight.

Check out this impromptu video interview of The Situation:
