Who’s ready to see Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis reunite on the dance floor? Us, too!
The reigning Dancing With The Stars champs are hitting the floor once again in his dance extravaganza show, SWAY – A Dance Trilogy, in Westbury, New York come December 17th.
“Meryl and I are going to reproduce a couple of our routines and give people a little Maks and Meryl magic – even if it’s just for a day,” Maks shared with People. He added, “I think audiences are going to be very happy to see Meryl back on the stage. She has never done anything like this and is very excited about the opportunity. We are happy to have her with us this time, and to have Zendaya back again.”
Maks also commented on the status of their relationship, as many fans still think they are dating: “We aren’t dating, and I don’t think we will. She is very special. I care very deeply for Meryl. Our friendship is where it will be for many years. She is awesome to spend time with.”
“She is so soothing of a personality. For me to go 0 to 100, I take very long, but once you get me going it’s impossible to stop. So, with Meryl, she totally balances me out. She’s like this little thing, and I’m like 10 miles of inferno, but she can put her hand on me and say, ‘Calm down. Everything is fine.’ And then everything calms down,” he shared.
Is everyone with us and just a puddle of goo now?
