The “Dancing With the Stars” pros are gearing up for the 2022 live tour — but that doesn’t mean they can’t also have a little behind-the-scenes fun. The professional dancers have been posting all kinds of great videos to social media, including Artem Chigvintsev and Alan Bersten messing with Gleb Savchenko during a break in rehearsal.
They Posted Videos of Gleb Napping On Tour
In a series of Instagram stories, Artem, Daniella, Alan, and even Gleb himself all posted videos of Gleb grabbing a cat nap while the rest of the pros are hanging out and eating.
“Working so hard, TA naps anywhere,” wrote Artem on his video, to which Gleb responded, “Karma is a b****. @Theartemc got me so good lol.”
In his video, Gleb also revealed the “Dancing With the Stars” tour professional dancers are in Richmond, Virginia, which is the show’s first performance stop. The tour kicks off on January 7 and hopefully, they’ll have better weather than when the pros arrived.
“Wow, this weather, guys. It’s crazy!” said Gleb in his video as he shows them unloading all their gear in a veritable snowstorm. “First day of rehearsals! Hey Pash, are you ready?!”
In his own video, Artem says, “We are at the venue right now, this is what it looks like,” as female pro Britt Stewart leaps behind him in the frame.
Daniella Is ‘So Excited’ To See All the Fans On Tour
Emma has previously said that she absolutely loves going on tour, so it’s no wonder she seems super excited. Also, watch for her little dance across the screen at the end, it’s hilarious.
“So we started tech rehearsals today. I can’t believe we’re finally here, this is crazy. Time just flew by and we get to see all of you soon, I’m so excited!” says Daniella in her own little behind-the-scenes video.
She also secretly recorded Sasha Farber… until he caught her and tried to cover his face. She also inadvertently shared that one of their dances is to “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard, which should be a lot of fun.
The “Dancing With the Stars” live tour starts January 7 in Richmond, Virginia, and ends March 27 in Modesto, California. The pros participating in the tour include Daniella, Sasha, Emma, Gleb, Artem, Alan, Britt, Brandon Armstrong, Pasha Pashkov, Sofia Ghavami, and Koko Iwasaki.

Several pros are not participating in the 2022 tour. Married pros Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy have their own teaching gig lined up, while Sharna Burgess wants to stay in southern California with her new boyfriend Brian Austin Green and his kids. Cheryl Burke, Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson have not said why they chose not to join the tour, but Lindsay and Witney do both have new babies at home and Cheryl has talked about her arthritis, so she may be using the offseason to rest up for next season.
“Dancing With the Stars” has not yet been renewed for season 31. If it is renewed, it will return in September 2022.
