Val Chmerkovskiy Returning For Dancing With The Stars Season 20 – New Interview

In a new interview with MassLive.com, Val Chmerkovskiy talks about being a Pro for Dancing With The Stars and what it’s like to teach. The article also says he will be back for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 and he reports back for work on February 17th….

“You can be an incredible dancer, but it doesn’t mean you will be a great teacher,” said Chmerkovskiy, who began giving lessons at the age of 15.

Key traits, he said, are patience and versatility in choreography – “the ability to acknowledge the strengths of your partner and recognize and camouflage their flaws.”

He said he has maintained friendships of varying levels with his celebrity partners, who have included “Pretty Little Liars” actress Janel Parrish, “Wonder Years”‘ co-star Danica McKellar, talk show host Sherri Shepherd, “General Hospital” actress Kelly Monaco, Disney Channel starlet Zendaya and “Saved By the Bell” alum Elizabeth Berkley Lauren.

“‘Dancing With the Stars’ – as silly as a concept as it is – is a phenomena,” Chmerkovskiy said. “The joy, the hard work, the bond – these people walk away with an experience they cannot replicate anywhere else.”

Chmerkovskiy will return for the 20th season of “DWTS.” He is scheduled to report for work on Feb. 17 – two days after the national tour concludes in Los Angeles.

“I have a spot on the No. 1 show in the world doing what I love,” Chmerkovskiy said. “When I think of the investment and sacrifice my parents made, having this is the greatest gift.”

Sasha Farber Chats On The DWTS Live Tour, Dancing, And More (New Interview, Videos)

The Baltimore Sun interviewed Dancing With The Stars Sasha Farber. They ask him how he became a dancer and being on Dancing With The Stars. He also answers a question on the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour and what people can expect if they go to the show. Read on….

What have you gained or learned from your experiences on the show?

I’ve learned a lot. You learn really quickly because once you get the celebrity [partner], you get to see someone transform right in front of your eyes into a different person, a different character. And as she becomes a better dancer, a better person, it’s just an amazing feeling. … And you get to share different stories with them through dance every week.

What do you like to do when you’re not dancing?

I’m a big movie watcher. I like to watch new and old movies and also just explore wherever we are. That’s my favorite part [of touring]. I never like to just kind of get to a city and just sleep or do absolutely nothing because, to me, that would be a waste of a day. And I like to research a lot, especially in dancing, because dancing evolves every day really so you need to stay on top of that.

What can people expect from the tour show in Baltimore?

We’ve made sure it’s exactly what the fans want. We’re doing some of the best numbers from last season. Alfonso [Ribeiro, who won the most recent season] is hosting. There’s some great, passionate numbers involved and watching what’s happened in the past cities, we’ve had standing ovations and the reviews have been amazing so Baltimore can expect a really, really good show.

More at the Baltimore Sun. And thanks to Sasha for some new videos. One video has the girls singing a new track for the tour in Nashville yesterday with Melissa Rycroft…

Janel Parrish Scheduled To Join DWTS Live Tour, New Val Chmerkovskiy Interview

If you go to TBO.com, you can read a new interview with Val Chmerkovskiy. He talks of Dancing With The Stars, his partners, and how he was disappointed in a 3rd place finish last season. He also talks on the showmance with his partner Janel Parrish and how people had the wrong impression of their relationship. He also talks a little on the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. Note that Season 19 partner Janel Parrish will join the tour when it gets to California.

Chmerkovskiy says his former partner Parrish is scheduled to join the tour when it gets to California. There were rumors that the two became an item during this 19th season and that Parrish had fallen for the charming Ukrainian-born dancer.

Chmerkovskiy’s previous partners include former “Wonder Years” star Danica McKellar, comic Sherri Shepherd, actress Kelly Monaco, actress Elizabeth Berkley, and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis.

“And I loved dancing with every one of them,” he says, adding that because Parrish was close to his age and they looked good together people got the wrong impression about what he calls “showmance” rather than romance.

“My commitment and dedication never change,” he says. “I was very proud of her. She was incredible, truly incredible. She was willing to work hard, and she was so beautiful. I literally have no regrets about the experience.”

He says he was disappointed in the third-place finish because he is so competitive. He has yet to be part of a winning team on “Dancing.” He also finished in third place with Kelly Monaco during “Dancing’s” all-star season.

Now focused on the tour, Chmerkovskiy has other career goals. He and his brother, dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, own a chain of dance studios (Dance With Me) with locations in Connecticut, New York and near their New Jersey-area home. He says they want to expand the franchise to the West Coast. Since he was a child, he has played the violin and hopes to perform professionally one day. He also raps under the stage name of VC and has released one album.

He doesn’t know if he will be back for season 20 of “Dancing With the Stars” because ABC has yet to announce the cast.

“Right now, I am enjoying the tour without the pressure of being judged,” he says.
