Heads up Val Chmerkovskiy fans living in or wanting to visit the Princeton, New Jersey area. Val is going to be teaching a 45 minute Master Dance class on December 14th at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio. The class is open to the public and is reasonably priced. What a fun way to meet Val (if I only lived a little closer. :mrgreen: ). Here is a take from Princeton Patch. For more information on how to acquire tickets, be sure to visit the link.
“It’s a celebrity coming to town,” Smile said. “It’s exciting, people look forward to it, there’s glamour and movement and you learn new things.”
So why is Val coming to Princeton?
The owner of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Princeton, Ilya Ifraimov, is a friend with Chmerkovskiy family. He and Maks became friends when they competed against each other in international dance competition. When Ilya got married, Maks was the best man at his wedding.
Now Val will make an appearance at Ilya’s studio in Princeton.
“He’s a fabulous dancer, a fabulous person, a very humbler person,” Ilya said of Val, who has won numerous dance championships and is currently the U.S. Amateur Latin Champion with partner Daria Chesnokova.
“A very humbler person”….just why I like him and why he’s become one of my fave pros now along with Tristan and Derek!!
