Last night, Dancing With The Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy travelled to Abilene, Texas. He headlined a “Women’s Night Out” event. Below is a local report about him from the Reporter News. Sounds like Val was a big hit. You can read more on the night at the link.
Though the booths and the fashion show featuring clothes from the downtown shop Wild Ones were big draws, the headliner of the night was the appearance of Val Chmerkovskiy, one of the dancers from “Dancing With the Stars.”
“I pulled him up (on the Internet) and I was like, ‘Wow, he’s really good-looking,'” Kirkland said.
When Chmerkovskiy walked out on the runway, the majority of the crowd abandoned the booths and moved closer to the catwalk. He thanked the ladies for their warm welcome and then opened the microphone up to questions and answers. It was Jennifer Grothaus who sparked admiration and a bit of jealousy from the audience when she asked Chmerkovskiy to teach her a few dance steps.
As Chmerkovskiy took her in his arms, Grothaus reached up and touched his cheek as if she couldn’t believe he was really there. He led her through a series of steps, and gave her a spin and a hug, blushing before he let her go. The crowd gave Grothas a round of applause as she left the stage.
Grothaus said she asked him to dance because he had traveled so far to get to Abilene. She said she was glad he was a professional and did such a good job of leading her.
“I couldn’t think about my steps, seeing his eyes and putting his hands on me,” she said, a big smile lighting up her face.
