Meet the Pro: Valentin Chmerkovskiy


Valentin Chmerkovskiy first captured the attention of audiences across the nation in 2011 when he appeared as a professional dancer on ABC’s #1 hit show, Dancing with the Stars. The 13-time US National Champion and two-time World Dance Champion quickly rose to stardom becoming one of the show's fan-favorites for impeccable performances that showcased not only immense talent and creativity, but an undeniable charisma to match.

Since his TV debut, the Ukrainian-born dance champion continues to steal the hearts of fans—both on and off the dance floor. Valentin has expanded upon his talents as a dancer, choreographer and instructor to create an empire that inspires others through the art of dance. Valentin co-founded Dance With Me Studios, one of the nation’s leading Latin and Ballroom dance studios, where he also lends his expertise as the venue’s Art Director. The success of the first studio ignited in Valentin a passion for teaching his craft, leading him to pursue his latest endeavor Dance With Me Juniors, a program Valentin proudly designed to keep kids healthy, focused and active.

The effect of Valentin Chmerkovskiy is proving to be contagious, as he has recently become the face of multiple world-renowned brands such as P&G's Everyday Effect, Dr. Scholl’s and Olay’s Ultra Moisture Body Wash, to name a few. The many talents of Valentin Chmerkovskiy have allowed him to transform his role as a professional dancer to a widely recognized symbol of sex appeal, health, fitness, talent and hard work. He expects to explore yet another creative project with the launch of his clothing line, Valentín, in October of 2013. In addition to this venture, Valentin can be found competing on the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars alongside partner Elizabeth Berkley Lauren.
