Here, Burke shares more shoe secrets, her celebrity crush and a few hidden talents.

1. She owns about 150 pairs of shoes.
“Because I live in activewear, I have so many different types of tennis shoes. I also have wedge heels by Steve Madden from when I was in high school. I’ve been dancing my whole life, so I walk around in flip-flops. And I love a good Louboutin.”

2. Burke’s celebrity crush is Jimmy Fallon.
“I’ve always had a crush on him — he’s so funny. Also,Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling, of course.”

3. She’s a heels girl.
“I would run in heels if I could.”

4. In addition to being a dancer, she is also a pianist and tennis player.
“I have a couple of hidden talents. I used to play piano as a kid. If I wasn’t a dancer, I would be a professional tennis player.”

5. If she could be a shoe, it would be a platform clog.
“I’ve been into clogs lately. The ones you would wear with a good bell-bottom romper. I’m not very tall, so I love a good wedge or heel.”
