Maks Chmerkovskiy Talks About His Biggest Project, DWTS, And More (New Interview)

Maks Chmerkovskiy talked with the Las Vegas Review about choreographing for “Le Reve — The Dream” for the Wynn in Las Vegas. He also chatted about Dancing With The Stars, his health and fitness, and his more dear project of all….his new son and Peta.

Tell me one thing that your fans would be surprised to learn about you.

I’m not a dick; I’m not an *sshole. I’ve kept my life open with fans, not like many famous people do. I appreciate the audience and know that people love watching what we do. I’m responsible with my craft and product. I have a hard time believing that people are fascinated with my life. I’m just a regular dude with a normal, regular family with regular beliefs.

We did the best with what we have. I have strong stances with certain issues, and that can come across as hard-headed. It’s not my personality. I have a job to do. I’m inside my car outside my house right now, and I can see paparazzi staking out our home. Amazing! We’re not that couple; we find it interesting and funny.

You’ve left an indelible mark in Las Vegas with “Le Reve — The Dream” at Wynn Las Vegas. Any plans for more choreography work in the future? What does the future hold for you?

We have plans for Las Vegas in the near future and new opportunities. We had a successful summer tour with Val. Las Vegas is in the talks with my production company. It is in full swing this year, and we have an amazing cast and pool of people who are show-caliber and high-end quality.

I’d like to parlay this into a Hollywood career. I’m passionate about acting and am waiting for the right project. Dancing is obviously going to be at a forefront to live healthy and be happy and young as long as possible. Dancing is the only way I can prove it.

My biggest project is my son and Peta. I fall in love with her more and more every day. It has been an incredible year, and we’re about to open a Las Vegas dance studio, our 10th, at Tivoli Village. I’ve been a Las Vegas semi-resident for eight years, from working at Wynn to spending New Year’s Eve there. The studio has been a long time coming, and we are extremely excited.

Lots more at the Las Vegas Review. I’m loving this interview.
