Maksim Chmerkovskiy Thanks Meryl Davis For Making Him A Better Dancer & Choreographer

Maksim Chmerkovskiy shows off his muscles as he arrives alongside partner Meryl Davis for dance practice in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (May 13).

The 34-year-old pro dancer wrote a sweet message to Meryl, 27, and his fellow Dancing With The Stars pros after the semi-finals earlier in the week.

“Being able to REALLY create and REALLY dance is very rare….especially on @dancingabc That’s why I have so much respect for ANY PRO WHO HAS EVER DONE THIS SHOW…even for one week! I’ve always been passionate about story-telling and I want to thank @meryledavis for embracing my insanity and making me a better choreographer AND a better dancer… Today was a gift…,” he captioned on Instagram.

So sweet!

I thought derek was the choreographer who first worked with meryl during her gold medal routine? Maks kinda was handed derek’s seconds but he seems to have benefitted from the dancer exchange.

Derek just choreography her routine for the Olympics that was it. Dancing on skates is different from dancing on solid ground without ice underneath you. I don’t believe he got his seconds I believe in his own right she has made him better and he has tapped into her inner dancer. Give makes his props he his a great dancer as well as a great teacher. Yes Derek is good but Derek is not the greatest. Derek tends to almost @Sable Senegal: get the better dancing celebrity or the celebrity with a good sob story. But at the end of the day they all are great in there own right and they all have there own style of teaching.

@dashua:
So very true! Derek has the boy-next-door kind of charm. His dances have mirth and whimsy. He is inventive, acrobatic, and has bundles of charm. Max is a whole other bouquet of qualities, and has sex appeal that is almost dangerous to allow oneself to approach. It seems to me that he and Meryl had the ability to, or the willingness to be free enough to fall deeply into one another. That takes trust, mad a lot of it. Who knows if it is genuine chemistry, or real love. It is absolute faith in the other. The rest is the hard work that generates memorable, if not historic performances. Can’t wait for tomorrow night’s show to see the dances. I dread the end of Tuesday’s show because it will then be over.
