Paige VanZant is happy to sign a few autographs and say hi to the fans outside the dance studio in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon (April 14).
The 22-year-old UFC fighter spoke with MMAJunkie about her switch up partner, Sasha Farber.
“It’s really exciting, and of course I’m nervous about dancing with a new partner because me and Mark [Ballas] do have a good stride going and a great relationship,” she admitted. “But at the same time, I feel like it’s part of the competition. I’m just here for fun, so I’m just going to embrace it and enjoy every second of meeting a new friend and dancing with someone new.”
Paige and Sasha will be performing a Rumba to “Perfect” by One Direction.
Witney Carson is also spotted arriving and leaving practice on Wednesday (April 13) and Thursday.

JJJ is going to be honest here — we were sad not to see Emma Slater‘s name on the pro list for Dancing With The Stars‘ upcoming 22nd season.
But we’re sure that we’ll see her all the time on the show — because boyfriend Sasha Farber is back as a pro!
Emma wrote on Instagram to her fans about her break, “Hi everyone! I am now able to tell you that I will be taking a break from season 22 of Dancing With The Stars. Although I will miss my brilliant fellow dancers, I will be watching and cheering for them still. I know it’s going to be a great season, as it never fails to be so big congrats to all the cast and crew :) Thank you to all you guys who support me and show me love on social media! You mean the world to me and I can’t wait to share with you all what’s next! Big love! xoxox.”
She added later, in support of Sasha and his celeb partner, Kim Fields, “My amazing boyfriend is going to kill it this season!! I’m so excited for this! @sashafarber1 you deserve this so much, no one compares to you in my eyes. And @kimfieldsofficial is the perfect partner for you! Woohoo Good luck to both of you guys, you got this! Hope everyone will join me and support Kim & Sash!”

Hayes Grier, welcome to the club!
The 15-year-old social star, who is currently on the DWTS Live tour with his former partner, Emma Slater and her boyfriend, Sasha Farber, has joined the rest of America in wanting Sasha on the reality competition show as a pro, and not just a troupe dancer.
“Hey @DancingABC I think @SashaFarber should be pro next season,” Hayes wrote earlier this afternoon, and his fans soon followed suit, getting the hashtag trending on Twitter.
He added, “Hey @DancingABC I think a few people agree that @SashaFarber should be a pro for season 22. What do you think?”

Nick Carter arrives at the dance studio, ready for practice on Saturday afternoon (November 7) in Los Angeles.
The 34-year-old singer stopped to say hi to fans before meeting up with his partner, Sharna Burgess (not pictured).
Troupe dancers Emma Slater, Jenna Johnson, Brittany Cherry, Hayley Erbert, Artem Chigvinstev, Sasha Farber, Alan Bersten and Keo Motsepe are also seen at the studio.
“Well, it was a surprise to us that they did that [that way],” Nick dished about how DWTS did the gender reveal of their child for him and wife Lauren Kitt backstage.
Lauren explained, “We knew they knew the gender, but we didn’t know how they were going to reveal it. The news got leaked about the pregnancy without us telling our friends and family, so this was something we had control over. We said [to the producers], you guys can know and then reveal it however you want.”
