Dancing With the Stars

The concept of the show is to pair a celebrity with a professional dancer in an attempt to win a high score from a panel of three judges and then a high number of votes from the viewers, who can call in and vote online. The person who receives the lowest score is eliminated, but they are allowed to dance one last dance at the end of the show.

Character Bio

Gleb Savchenko photo
Gleb Savchenko's passion for the performing arts began at the young age of 7. His hard work, extraordinary natural abilities and discipline paid off when, at just 14 years old, he won his first and second professional international championships. Savchenko graduated from the Russian Theatre Arts University with a Masters in choreography and also studied drama and theatre. He is a specialist in International Latin dance with proficiency in ballet and contemporary dance.

Savchenko has previously taken part as a pro on the Australian, Russian, U.S. and U.K. versions of Dancing with the Stars. In the U.S. in 2013, he partnered with restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump; and in 2015, he made his debut on the number one-rated show in the U.K. on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, where he reached the semifinals with his partner, the TV and radio presenter/host Anita Rani.

When he was introduced to the U.K. audience on the Strictly Come Dancing launch show, he caused a huge stir on social media with viewers finding the Russian irresistible, and many made comparisons between Savchenko and a young Patrick Swayze. Following his Strictly appearance, U.K. viewers were left wanting more, and so Gleb appeared on the BBC primetime show Celebrity Masterchef.

When he had finished filming in the U.K., he made his return to Dancing with the Stars in the U.S. and was partnered with Jana Kramer. He and Jana reached the finals of the dance competition and often received perfect 10 scores, most notably for their tango. After the finals, he flew straight to the U.K. to make his West End stage debut in the spectacular show One More Dance, which was choreographed by his wife and dance supremo, Elena Samodanova. He then took part in the nationwide U.S. tour We Came to Dance, with some of his fellow Dancing with the Stars professionals.

Alongside dance, Savchenko maintains a thriving modeling career; and for the past two years, he has released bestselling calendars and has a popular underwear range, "Gleb Collection."

Gleb currently resides in L.A. with his wife, Elena, and their two young daughters, and was part of the Dancing with the Stars tour this summer. He and his wife are both very accomplished and respected choreographers, in addition to being incredible dancers, and often work together on projects in the international world of dance.
