The Dancing With The Stars 2017 cast has been practicing their routines for the DWTS premiere, and it’s almost time for them to show the world what they are made of. Some of the teams have posted some behind-the-scenes footage from their rehearsals, and it looks like this season isn’t going to disappoint!
While there are already some clear front-runners like the dance-experienced Heather Morris from Glee and performer Erika “Jayne” Girardi from The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, there are a few other serious Dancing contenders on Season 24.
The Dancing With The Stars cast was officially announced on Good Morning America exactly one week ago on March 1. Since that time, the “stars” have been busy trying to learn how to ballroom dance. It all starts with the basics but with only two weeks until showtime, those moves are pretty critical. Making it past week one of the dancing competition show is a mountain for so many of the stars.
Let’s take a look at some of the footage posted by the upcoming Dancing With The Stars cast to see how the competition is shaping up!
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko have been hard at work perfecting their first-ever dance. The reality star gave fans a glimpse of her rehearsal using the Boomerang App on Instagram yesterday!
A few days ago, new dad Maks Chmerkovskiy posted a picture with Heather Morris. The two looked locked in a very serious moment that is sure to come to life on the dance floor in a couple of weeks.
Maks’ brother Val Chmerkovskiy is still high off of his Dancing With The Stars Mirror Ball Trophy win last season and is kicking things into high gear with his partner, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei. He posted a video of the two doing the jive to Blue Suede Shoes.
Dancing With The Stars contenders Emma Slater and Rashad Jennings are getting to know each other lately, and they have been doing a lot of training in addition to dancing. Check out the video Emma posted of the two doing stacked push-ups!
Lindsay Arnold and Chicago Cubs’ star David Ross have been getting pretty limber lately. Surely, a ballet barre isn’t something that Ross uses during his warm-ups at Wrigley Field!
Professional bull rider and model Bonner Bolton is heating things up with the fiery Sharna Burgess (who is way overdue to win that coveted Dancing With The Stars Mirror Ball!). He posted a video of rehearsals last night.
“Still got a long ways to go boys and girls but I’m having fun and it’s getting better little by little time to put in the after hours and extra homework on my own,” he said.
