Originally hailing from Long Island, New York, Teddy made the long trek to New Jersey several times a week to train at Dance With Me studios with future Dancing With the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani and Val Chmerkovskiy. (Teddy’s mother, Janna, co-owns the studio with Maks, Tony, Sasha Chmerkovskiy, and Eugene Livshits.) Teddy eventually put his studies at NYU on hold to join the DWTS Troupe in 2011, which he hopes to turn into an opportunity to become a competing pro on the show.
