Maksim Chmerkovksiy And Peta Murgatroyd Not Sure If They Are Coming Back For Dancing With The Stars Season 25

In a new interview with IB Times, Maksim Chmerkovksiy says he’s not sure if he and Peta Murgatroyd are coming back for Dancing With The Stars Season 25. It’s a “domestic issue” since they have a new baby now. Read below for more….

In an interview with International Business Times, Maks admitted he wasn’t entirely sure whether or not he’d come back for Season 25, because of his new commitments outside of the ABC show. He and wife Peta Murgatroyd, another pro dancer from the show, welcomed their son, Shai, together earlier this year, and he tells IBT that they need to see if they can both commit to the show and properly raising him at the same time.

“Before this was always a million-dollar question, ‘Will Maks return?'” Maks admitted to IBT. “But now it’s not, it’s more of a domestic issue. So, I figure things out on my behalf, and Peta has a team that she consults with, and so they figure out stuff as well. But we obviously prioritize Shai, and it’s important to both of us to make sure that our time with him is not is not being cut into. It’s one of my main things that I want to be around all the time, and I see all the things that happen.”

Even if he doesn’t return for a new season however, the LivOn spokesman and co-owner of “Dance With Me” Dance studios does still love teaching, and admits he gets a thrill out of that part of his job.

“I get off on educating literally basic dance, basic cha-cha, you know the fundamentals of movement and weight transfer, then taking it further to ‘What is dance?’ You know, what is different from one style to another?” Maks said. “The difference in fundamentals of Latin and Ballroom on that level, people may look at it and go ‘That’s boring.’ I can guarantee you that a lesson with me, it’s extremely exciting, and I’m sure that you walk away a more knowledgeable dancer than you came in, no matter what level you are.”

I bet they are both back. Maks is in prime shape and his injury from last season has healed too. We will see tomorrow on Good Morning America. More of this interview at IB Times.
