Cheryl Burke isn't surprised when celebrities have to drop out of "Dancing With the Stars" because of injuries. Burke doesn't think the stars take dancing seriously enough. She tells AP Radio celebrities "have no idea what they're coming into."

She says dancing is a sport "that's different than any other sport." She says "you're really working on everything from head to toe."

Burke says the key to not getting injured is to "warm up the body and take it easy."

We'll find out in tonight's season premiere what they plan to do about Jewel and Nancy O'Dell having to quit because they got hurt.
