Here come the Dancing queens!
Fresh off the heels of her victory on Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars, Rumer Willis is hitting the road for Dancing With the Stars: Live! Perfect Ten Tour, hosted by Melissa Rycroft. The show’s newest winner joins the cast of professional dancers in 25 cities across the U.S. (the complete tour reaches over 40 cities) this summer.
“Over the weeks on DWTS I fell in love with dancing,” Willis, 26, gushed in a press release. “And after winning the show I just didn’t want to stop.”
Hosted by DWTS All-Stars champ Rycroft, 32, Dancing With the Stars: Live! features plenty of familiar faces, including professional dancers Witney Carson, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Emma Slater, and troupe dancers Alan Bersten, Brittany Cherry, Sasha Farber, and Jenna Johnson.
Each 90-minute live show is packed with jaw-dropping and romantic performances, featuring never-before-seen choreography and some of the most memorable numbers in Dancing With the Stars’ 10-year history.
Rycroft won’t just be hosting, either. The former Bachelor contestant teased that she’ll be wearing many hats — or jazz shoes — during the tour. “I will be dancing. Not sure if I’m doing partner dances or a couple of group dances, but I’m doing at least three numbers as well as hosting,” she said.
The mother of two also told Us how she got back in post-baby dance shape.
“I started cycling!” she shared. “I crave dance so I’m able to sing and dance to the music and get a really good workout. I got those muscular leg muscles back from doing some fun cycling and dancing.”
Even with her hectic schedule, it doesn’t look like there will be much time for relaxing — because she’s bringing her family along! Husband Tye Strickland, daughter Ava, 4, and son Beckett, 1, are also hitting the road for the “best family vacation in the world.”
“Now instead of being anxious I’m looking forward to it! It’s going to be chaos!” she joked. “Living like a rockstar on a bus? I mean, it’s pretty cool.”
The most exciting part of the Dancing With the Stars: Live! Tour for Rycroft is seeing all of the show’s fans.
“I’m looking forward to the Q&A’s and the meet and greets and connecting with the audience – it’s the fans who really keep this tour going,” she said. “I think it’s going to be fun to see them interact with everyone!”
Despite the glitzy costumes and big dance numbers, Rycroft said to expect a smaller, more intimate feel for the performances.
“This [tour] brings the live show to you and makes it more personal,” she explained. “It’s a really cool experience.”
