Val Chmerkovskiy was interviewed by the Buffalo News before the premiere of the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. He talks on the dynamics of the show (on tv), his partners, the reality of the rehearsal packages, off camera friendships, and more. But, interesting note in the interview….Val mentions how he will also be playing the violin in a trio performance with Mark Ballas and another guitarist on the tour. Oh, this is too cool. More below and at the link.
On whether any of his partners on the show ever disappointed him.
“Every partner has challenged me a bit. … For me dancing is about men and women coming together.”
On whether or not there are off-camera friendships between the show’s professional dancers and its judges.
“I feel there’s a certain natural distance that must be kept away from them.” He exempted from that Julianne Hough, a judge last season but before that a “peer” as one of the show’s professional dancers.
On whether his lifelong violin-playing will be part of “Dancing with the Stars Live.” (He and professional dancer Ballas have a trio with Ballas on guitar and another guitarist.)
It will. “I will never turn down a challenge.”

Awww, this is too fun and it’s good to see Dmitry Chaplin again! Thanks to @chilosa2004 for sending this to us!!
This week former Dancing With The Stars pros Anna Trebunskaya and Dmitry Chaplin will be performing in Ballroom With A Twist in New Hope, Pennsylvaia. Anna talks all about with Central Jersey.
The show promises glamorous costumes, music and top-notch dance performances that push the boundaries of ballroom dance, infusing it with the energy and intensity of the latest contemporary styles.
”It takes a little from each show and so hopefully people that come to the show get a little taste and feel of the excitement,” Ms. Trebunskaya says. “Dancing is fun, beautiful and everyone loves beautiful music and costumes. Even when guys say they don’t care about it, they still enjoy seeing good-looking girls in good-looking costumes.”
Known for her dry humor, sparking personality and the jaw-dropping Argentine tango she performed with partner Olympic skater Evan Lysacek in season 10 of Dancing With the Stars, Ms. Trebunskaya left the show last year to have a baby.
”I just had a daughter and she takes a lot of time, so my commitment needs to be to her first. It’s an adventure like no other and changes every day,” she says. “Being in a show like ‘Ballroom With a Twist’ is more flexible than doing ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and as you get older, your priorities change.”
While she admits to missing Dancing With the Stars, she has returned to sit in the audience and still keeps in close contact with many of her fellow dancers.
”I love everyone on that show. I still watch it, I talk about it and I even co-host an after-show in which I critique what I saw,” Ms. Trebunskaya says. “A lot of my friends are still on the show, so there’s definitely a strong connection. It will forever be in my life to an extent.”
