Nina,unknown to many, had already wished joining the celebrity dance competitionfrom the time she was first invited to sing in the show. When SWD asked her tobe part of the singers' batch, she didn't think twice.
"The thought of justdancing, yung walang singing involved, pure dancing lang, exciting talaga atsiguro nga kasi gusto ko lang i-share sa lahat ng tao my talent indancing," says the sweet-faced R&B singer.
Nina used totake ballet and jazz dance lessons when she was very young. It's no wonder she did not hesitate to take up the celebrity dance challenge.
LikeNina, Sitti also became a guest singer in SWD. She was so impressed by thecelebrities' dancing ballroom on the show that she actually considered thepossibility of competing in SWD someday. And now, she's ready to show off herdancing prowess for the first time on TV. According to Sitti, it will be a realchallenge for her since she has no background in dancing, much less ballroom style.

She made it all the way to the finals butfell short of getting the trophy away from Roderick Paulate, who was Season 3's grand champion.
