(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Mitt Romney and his wife Ann have largely stayed out of the spotlight since he lost the presidential election.
Now we're learning Ann considered putting on her dancing shoes for a popular TV show.
The producers of "Dancing With the Stars" asked her to try out her moves.
During an interview that aired Sunday Ann Romney says she thought about it, but in the end decided not to give it a whirl.
"I am turning 64, and I started thinking about it, and I'm like, I'm not really as flexible as I should be. And now I understand Dorothy Hamill has been picked, and I thought, 'oh, my gosh, am I glad I didn't do that.' I wouldn't want to compete against Dorothy," said Ann Romney.
Ann Romney says she is a big fan of the show but knows how physically demanding the training can be.
