Ballroom dance champion and Emmy nominated choreographer, Louis Van Amstel, is probably best know for his stunning dance moves on ABC”s “Dancing with the Stars”. Louis joined DWTS in season one when he partnered with The Bachelorette’s Trista Stutter, season two with hostess Lisa Rinna, season three with High School Musical star Monique Coleman, season six with actress Priscilla Presley, season nine with singer Kelly Osbourne, season eleven with Reno 911 star Niecy Nash, season twelve with comedian Margaret Cho, season twelve with reality tv star Kendra Wilkinson and season 15 with Sabrina Bryan.
Louis has yet to win the coveted “Mirror Ball Trophy” but in the upcoming fifteenth season of DWTS his partner is actress and dancer, Sabrina Bryan, Louis is excited and told Good Morning America that for the first time since season twelve, he was partnered with the most advanced partner, “This is the first season I can knock myself out as a dancer, as a choreographer because she’s so good.”
Louis has incredible talents that reach far beyond the ballroom, he has choreographed for shows like So You Think You Can Dance, appeared in several TV shows, served as creative director and the creator of LaBlast – an innovative partner-free dance fitness program.
The DWTS pro is now taking his passion for fitness a step further in launching his first collection of fitness apparel called LVA by Louis Van Amstel.
I think it is amazing that Louis left school at the age of 16, became a world renown ballroom dancer, choreographer and now not only the owner of LaBlast but LVA as well, it’s an amazing and inspiring achievement.
