DANCING WITH THE STARS Judge Carrie Ann Inaba Calls Spiritual Wellbeing ‘A Priority’

By Movieguide® Contributor

TV personality Carrie Ann Inaba recently shared her tips for spiritual wellbeing, as well as why she thinks viewers connect with DANCING WITH THE STARS. 

Inaba has served as a judge on DANCING WITH THE STARS since 2005 and also co-hosted THE TALK from 2019 to 2021. 

“DANCING WITH THE STARS is such a special show, and I’m honored I get to be a part of it even now, after 30 seasons,” she shared. “I believe that people connect with it because it represents and always will represent life and transformation.”

She continued, “I think we can all respect someone who tries something new after having success in a particular area of life. It’s daring and inspiring. Many people want to try something new and never do it. Watching the stars and contestants learn to dance is powerful.”

Inaba also shared how she maintains spiritual wellbeing, which she called “a priority.” 

“I feel peace when I’m around God’s creations,” Inaba explained. “Animals, plants and seeing the miracles in nature help me maintain peace in an ever-changing world.”

“I like to be in flow with my body as well,” she continued. “When my mind and my body are in flow, I feel more connected to God. Movement is my prayer. My body is able to express things that I sometimes can’t find words for. So when I dance or move or stretch, I feel connected to my spiritual truth.”

Inaba then shared her favorite Bible verse: “For we live by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).

“I love this Bible verse because most of life is all about faith,” she explained. “We can’t always see the most important things, and this verse reminds us of that. I think this resonates with many artists because a lot of life as a creative being has to do with having an idea or a thought and then trusting and having faith that it is what you are meant to do. Knowing that there is so much more happening in the world beyond what we can see—that gives me peace and hope.”
