The "Dancing With The Stars" champion will perform in concert Jan. 27 at 8 PM.
A lifelong dancer and musician, Emmy-nominated Ballas has wowed over 20 million viewers on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars" for eight seasons. No stranger to the mirror ball trophy, he is a two-time champion (Season 6 with Kristi Yamaguchi and Season 8 with Shawn Johnson). He garnered a 2011 Creative Arts Emmy nomination for Outstanding Choreography for his creative pieces during Season 12. In April 2011 Ballas' debut solo album, "HurtLoveBox," was released by Hit Play Records – Sony Red. As an actor, he played the lead in the musical Copacabana. He also took on roles in the U.K. tour of Maria de Buenos Aires, and was an understudy in the London Palladium production of Buddy, The Buddy Holly Musical.
