Bindi Irwin's family isn't known for their dancing skills, but that isn't stopping her younger brother, Robert, from offering help as she prepares to compete on season 21 of Dancing with the Stars.
"My brother Robert – he's 11 now – he sat me down the other day and very seriously told me, 'Bindi, I'm going to give you some tips for when it comes to dancing. I have some great ideas for you,' " the daughter of the late Steve Irwin says in the latest issue of PEOPLE. "I said, 'Okay. Thank you.' "
