William Levy Is A Little Old Fashioned On 'Dancing With The Stars' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

William Levy turned up the heat for the second week in a row on last night's 'Dancing With the Stars.'

The strapping Cuban hunk and his partner Cheryl Burke were tasked with dancing the Quick Step, and even though the Cuban heartthrob said he'd never heard of the dance, he and Burke managed to score a 25, which put them at number two on the leaderboard behind Katherine Jenkins and Roshon Fegan, who both earned 26s.

Burke was thrilled with their score, and pointed out that it's an improvement over last week when the duo nabbed 24 out of a possible 30 points.

"We improved from last week and that's my goal, to slowly climb up the leaderboard and that's what we did," she said, adding that her partner can perform a multitude of dances. "I think he has both styles. He can really do the ballroom and the Latin really well. He obviously needs some work, but it's only week two. This show is about if you're good at both styles."

The DWTS judges echoed Burke's sentiments about Levy. "I've never seen anything like it before," judge Carrie Ann Inaba said of the way Levy gets the crowd all riled up. "You're the Harry Connick Jr. of the ballroom!" And judge Bruno Tonioli called Levy a 'matinee idol' and said he reminded him of French actor Jean Dujardin in the Oscar-winning film, "The Aritst."

But while Levy is focused on winning the mirror ball trophy, everyone keeps wondering about the details of his personal life -- details that Levy refuses to disclose.

"I just don't like talking about my private life," he told People.com backstage last night. "It's the only thing we can really have aside [from everything else] that we can really have for us."

Even when a reporter joked, "You'll get more votes on the show if you stay single," Levy refused to open up.

"I like to share things with people, but not everything, you know?"

But Levy did talk to reporters about his children - Christopher Alexander and Kailey Alexandra. "They love [me on the show]," he tells People.com. "They really love it. They're really enjoying me being on here. One of them came tonight.

Adds the proud dad: "[My kids] have changed my life."
