Even DJ Tanner has her limits! Candace Cameron Bure has continued to make it known that she won’t be donning skimpy outfits on Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars. On Monday, March 24, the Full House alum received huge support from the audience when she once again spoke about her values and Christian faith during her pre-taped rehearsal footage.
“I’m a Christian. My life revolves around my relationship with Jesus Christ,” Bure, 37, said before dancing the rumba with partner Mark Ballas. “So with the overall tone of the dance and the costumes I’m not going to take a backseat. My voice will definitely be heard.”
When Bure mentioned her faith, “the entire crowd in the ballroom cheered and clapped really loudly,” an onlooker told Us Weekly. She also had several family members attending the live show.
In the ABC clip, Bure and Ballas, 27, also discussed with the show’s costume designers what vision they had for their dance. However, when Ballas said he would like to go shirtless, Bure quickly jumped in.
“Not without my permission! No, I have to think about that,” she said. “This rumba is not a sexual dance,” she added in her one-on-one. “It’s a sensual, emotional dance. Sensual is more sexy than raunchy sex so I think this is going to be a beautiful dance.”
After last week’s season premiere, Bure opened up to Us about her modest wardrobe choices. “I won’t be the sexiest one out there. I am a mom and I want to be a good role model for my children and my husband,” she told Us at the time. “I think for each dance we’ll wear what reflects the dance but in the most classy way possible.” (Bure has three children — Natasha, 15, Lev, 14, and Maksim, 12 — with her husband, Russian NHL hockey player Valerie Bure.)
