DWTS Maks And Val Chmerkovskiy New “Our Way” Interviews, Photos, And Videos

Just a few updates on Maks And Val Chmerkovskiy and their “Our Way” tour. First, see Communities Digital News for a new interview with Val. In this take, he talks of how he’s been overwhelmed by the positive reviews of their show. Like Cheryl Burke and her new show, they are hoping to have a home at Las Vegas and Broadway.

Val said he’s been overwhelmed by the positive reviews after the first few weeks of the “Our Way” tour.

“People cry during our show. They laugh, it’s a roller coaster,” Val said. The response is beyond any of my expectations. It has exceeded them … I’m humbled, I’m flattered. It’s surreal. The fact we have our names on the marquee, it’s a gift to our parents. I never received a more enthusiastic response from any audience for any show.”

In addition to his dance numbers including several with Maks, Val gets to display his skills as a musician, playing the violin. “Yes, in a little section I help compose a Fiddler on the Roof/Notorious B.I.G. mashup,” he laughed. “It signifies our journey from Ukraine to New York City.”

Adding to the family theme of the show is the impending birth of Maks’ first child with DWTS pro Peta Murgatroyd. Val says it’s changed his brother for the better.

‘With this new development in his life, it’s added a completely different perspective on life for him. I’ve never seen my brother more put together, more dedicated than ever.”

Val said the ultimate goal for the show after it concludes its initial 47 city tour is to one day have a home on Broadway or Las Vegas. For now, lucky fans can let the show come to them.

“I’m not trying to say we’re the greatest dancers of all time,” said Val. “There are people out there right now better than us. It’s not about that. It’s about heart, it’s about reflecting on gratitude about where we came from and passing our passion to the next generation. That’s what the show’s about.

Be sure to see Communities Digital News to read the full interview. There are some beautiful photos there too. Thanks to Andrea for sending.

The Washington Post has also posted a new interview. Maks and Val answer questions on their tour, Dancing With The Stars, and more. For those who have seen the show, do you agree with this answer? I would say the “Move Live On Tour” has had more impact on how dance shows are produced than this show or the Dancing With The Stars shows. Hmmmm…..

Q: Did it help that the “Dancing With the Stars” live tour is not happening this summer?

A: Val: No, the two have nothing to do with one another. Obviously, we’re not going to deny the fact that a majority of our audiences are fans of “Dancing With the Stars.” But the shows are as vastly different as it gets. It’s a dance show, yes, but it’s ultimately a play, and it’s so heavily detail-oriented — there’s a through line, there’s a plot, from the beginning to the end — and there’s so much heart attached and camaraderie that’s onstage. It’s very, very different than any “Dancing With the Stars” or any other tour having to do with anybody from “Dancing With the Stars” that has ever been out.

In a nutshell, our inspiration moving into this project was “Hamilton.” In some ways, what “Hamilton” has done for Broadway shows — what it has done for the interpretation of history and how it fused all these worlds together into this modern, contemporary, hip-hop field, and delivered it in such an incredible way — we were inspired to do a similar thing for ballroom dancing and for dance shows in general. I’m not comparing us to “Hamilton,” by no means. But ultimately this show will have an everlasting impact on how dance shows are produced in general.

More at the Washington Post. Thanks to Linz for this find.

Also, if you want to take in some videos from the Our Way show, see Desireedianax3 You Tube and Fluently Sarcastic You Tube. Thanks to Andrea for these finds too. And below are more.

Don’t miss some fun fan photos of the show at Erica Lang’s twitter page too if interested and that is all for now. xx

Cheryl Burke Talks On Her New Dance Show, Wants To Take It To Vegas And Broadway Next

Former Dancing With The Stars pro, Cheryl Burke, has a new dance show premiering in Japan called “Love On The Floor. You can read all about it at US Weekly. It stars Charlie White, Meryl Davis, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Daisuke Takahashi. Cheryl also talks on Dancing With The Stars and why she left which you can read about in the take below as well as how she’d like to bring “Love On The Floor” to Las Vegas and Broadway next. I so hope she can.

“Another reason why I felt like my time was up was because I wanted to achieve my goal as a performer. … I’m 32 years old. I felt like, ‘How about me? What can I do to make myself as a performer think outside the box and grow and motivate and inspire myself before my hips stop working?’” she continues.

“Now I’m dancing with kids — and now I know how the celebrities feel!” Burke says. “Not only am I directing, I’m creating, I’m editing the music, I’m coordinating everyone’s schedule — I feel like I’m running a start-up company!”

The dancer says performing with younger artists has also inspired her again after the lack of time to do anything new led her to think she wasn’t a great dancer. But she isn’t blaming her time on DWTS for creating the self-doubt.

“I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t done DWTS, and I love DWTS,” She says. “But everything is meant to be. DWTS has given me a platform to be able to do something like this.”

And after her Tokyo residency? Burke says she’d “love to take the show and do a residency in Vegas! I could see it on Broadway as well.”

I just want to start out by thanking @slaughteration and @paulmorente for making me believe in my dancing again. I couldn't have done this show without the two of you. I love you both so much! #heathers And to all of the amazingly talented dancers, thank you for inspiring me and for all of your hard work. I'm so proud of each and every single one of you. @d1sk_t, @charlieawhite, @meryledavis, & @kristiyamaguchi, I'm so honored that you're a part of this. Thank you for sharing your gift with all of us. To my agency, IMG, I can't believe 6 years ago this was just an idea on paper. Thank you for believing in #LoveOnTheFloor. And to the whole rest of the cast, brilliant choreographers, crew & TBS, thank you for bringing this show to life! Have a great show and have fun!! ❤️💃🏻

Maks And Val Chmerkovskiy’s “Our Way” On The East Coast – Photos, Videos, Fan Thoughts

Samantha, one our regular readers to the site, saw the “Our Way” tour last night in New Jersey. She said she “thoroughly enjoyed” herself. She especially loved the “living in New York City” part showing where they grew up”. The show was a bit shorter than the Dancing With The Stars show, but she loved it just the same. Below are some videos and pictures from this past week. You can also see some videos at RNRRT You Tube. I have a feeling I’m going to love the “Queen Of Hearts” performance. Check out the mug below too. If you haven’t got tickets yet, see this link.
