Louie Vito

PROFESSION:

Professional snowboarder

BACKGROUND:

We can't wait to watch this champion pro boarder shuffle down from the slopes to the floor of the Dancing with the Stars set in Season 9.

Daredevil Louie Vito is among the U.S.'s elite snowboarders favored to make the 2010 Olympic team. Competing in both the Pipe and Slopestyle disciplines, Vito continues to train for the Grand Prix qualifying.

The 21-year-old turned pro in 2006 and has competed in multiple Winter X-Games competitions. He is also a two-time winner of the USSA Grand Prix Halfpipe Series. His technical diversity and charismatic personality make him one of the most sought-after riders today.

Chelsie Hightower

CELEBRITY PARTNER: Louie Vito

BACKGROUND:

We're all pretty impressed that Chelsie has accomplished so much at such a young age. Do you realize that ever since she began competing at a high-level in ballroom, Chelsie has been in the finals and ranked as one of the top three couples in the country?! Not bad. Not bad at all.

In 2006, Chelsie was a finalist on TV's So You Think You Can Dance where one judge said, "You move so well, you could make a mannequin look good." That's good news for some of the guys around here who look quite wooden whenever they try to bust a move.

Chelsie has been helping other learn to dance since she was 15. She moved to North Carolina to teach and would fly to New York on weekends for lessons. She has been teaching at Center Stage in Utah where she's helped many students win national titles. She also teaches abroad. As busy as you are, Chelsie, we're so glad you found some time to do a little Dancing With The Stars!

ACHIEVEMENTS:

U.S. Representative to the Worlds - 2005

U.S National Standard Finalist - 2005

International Latin Finalist - 2006

10 Dance National Youth Champion - 2005

I agree SugarB. No dance to that. I felt the judges were generous with their scores.
