Then there’s the New York contingent, made up of Tony Dovolani, Val Chmerkovskiy, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Cheryl Burke, all of whom grew up dancing together with the Chmerkovskiy family and their central studio Dance With Me. The two groups are obviously friends, but it’s rare to see them swapping ideas and giving each other pointers.
That all changed in New York City last night (November 28), as Derek went out for a night on the town with Val and Maks! In the photo above, the three hotties pose looking like the picture of camaraderie at 1Oak nightclub. Val tweeted, “you already know #dwts #juggernauts.”
