Dancing With the Stars, or DWTS if you know what’s what, just revealed an all-star cast for season 30. The list of familiar faces includes Amanda Kloots, a former host of the Well+Good YouTube series Trainer of the Month Club.
Kloots got her start on Broadway as a dancer before eventually landing with the iconic Radio City Rockettes. Since then, she’s combined her knack for dance and love for exercise by building a popular fitness brand. Her first class for focused on jumping rope, which eventually expanded into dance cardio, before finally growing into a full-fledged digital fitness platform.
Now, in-between leading fitness classes and co-hosting The Talk on CBS, Kloots is stepping into ballroom for the upcoming season of DWTS. “This is a dream come true!” she wrote in a recent Instagram post. “I’ve never done ballroom and really never been partnered. But in the spirit of living my life I am beyond excited to get on the dance floor, do something new and try!”
We can’t wait to watch Kloots tango, salsa, and foxtrot her way through the season. In the meantime, we’ll be rehearsing our own moves with the workouts below.
