Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke spent Christmas with her family in the Philippines and now she’s off to visit fellow DWTS pro Kym Johnson in Australia. Cheryl tweeted:

“Spending my last day in El Nido! Had a great xmas with my fam but will soon be in Sydney to see @kym_johnson! My 1st time there. Can't wait!”

Cheryl told People Magazine she can’t go crazy over the holidays, food-wise. "Now that the show has wrapped, I have to be careful not to indulge," Cheryl told People. "It's important for me to keep my cardio up, especially for my body type, or I'll gain weight so fast."

Cheryl said she’s keeping busy during off-season with endorsement deals (but not Forever Tango, at least for January and February) and People asked about her dream partner for the spring Season 14. 

"I think anyone with lots of charisma, like Antonio Banderas, would be great," she said. Oooh, he would be great. Get that Puss in Boots!
