Meryl and Charlie in Manchester, NH

MANCHESTER, N.H. —Charlie White and Meryl Davis won America's first Olympic gold medal in ice dancing, but they may be even more famous for their current turn on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

The two will be preforming Thursday night at the Verizon Wireless Arena as part of the "Stars on Ice" tour.
Thursday morning, they practiced their dance steps for several hours at the Queen City Ballroom on Dow Street.
"Every morning, we have four to five hours of rehearsal, and then it's straight to the show," White said. "Physically and mentally, it's a lot of stress, and it's difficult."
White and Davis have been ice dancing partners for 17 years, but they said making the switch to a professional dance partner hasn't been that difficult.
"No one will ever have the partnership that Charlie and Meryl have," said White's dancing partner, Sharna Burgess. "There's something very special about them, and it's just meant to be."
"Some of the habits that I've formed on the ice in the last 22 years are difficult to break," Davis said of her transition to dancing.
White and Davis said there hasn't been any time to reflect on their historic accomplishment in Sochi.
They said they just jumped right into dancing and now have their sights set on a Mirror Ball Trophy.
