Petra Nemcova: Dancing with a Purpose

"Extra's" AJ Calloway caught up with "Dancing with the Stars" Petra Nemcova, who revealed she is dancing with a purpose.

Nemcova created the Happy Hearts Fund after surviving the Thailand tsunami of 2004. The charity helps rebuild children's lives after a natural disaster. She told AJ, "My goal is to keep the light shining on those in Japan."

When Calloway addressed the rumors she was not going to dance this season in order to fulfill charity work, Nemcova replied she plans on doing both and said, "It's a combination."

Petra and her "DWTS" partner Dmitry Chaplin will fox trot on to the premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" on March 21.
