Simone Biles is currently killing it on Dancing With The Stars.
The gold medalist athlete is used to giving things her all and nailing everything she does — but dancing is a whole different ballpark than gymnastics is.
“I’m used to being sore, but I am going home from rehearsals with sore muscles that I never knew could get sore! In gymnastics, we’re barefoot the entire day in training,” she says.
“With dancing, my calves and shins are aching at the end of the day because of the heels.”
But her partner, Sasha Farber, makes it all better.
“Sasha has been an amazing teacher. He’s very patient and he knows when and how to push me,” Simone shared. “I’m getting the steps down that he’s teaching me, but there’s just so much more to dancing than I ever thought there would be.”
Simone and Sasha are pictured below going to and from practice earlier this week in Los Angeles.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd aren’t the only Dancing With The Stars pros getting married — Emma Slater and Sasha Farber are too!
Who remembers their magical proposal that happened during last season?
However, while they were first planning a summer wedding this year, it’s all been postponed for the moment.
“We were thinking August, right? But it’s kind of wedding season,” Emma revealed of her plans. “A lot of people getting married over this summer…selfishly, I think I kind of want to stand out a little bit. So now I’m thinking maybe next year.”
She added that she’s looking for a wedding that no one will forget.
“I kind of just want a fairy godmother to wave her wand and for me to turn up and have a great party and then get married and then kind of be done with it. Is that just anti-romantic?”
This season, Emma is partnered with NFL player Rashad Jennings and Sasha is dancing with gymnast Simone Biles.

Simone Biles is opening up about the rigorous training for Dancing With the Stars.
The 20-year-old Olympian is used to hard work, but didn’t expect it to be this difficult.
“I have spent almost my entire life pushing my body to its limits, but all my years of gymnastics training still did not fully prepare me for what it’s been like to do Dancing with the Stars,” Simone wrote in her People blog. “Sasha has been an amazing teacher. He’s very patient and he knows when and how to push me. I’m getting the steps down that he’s teaching me, but there’s just so much more to dancing than I ever thought there would be.”
Dancing With the Stars premieres TONIGHT, March 20 @ 8PM on ABC.
Olympian Simone Biles and her Dancing With the Stars partner Sasha Farber thought long and hard, and they finally found the perfect team name.
We’ll give you a hint: It has everything to do with Simone‘s gymnastics career and her adorable personality.
The dynamic duo made the announcement from the World Champions Centre in Spring, Texas, where Simone trained for the Olympics (that’s another hint, btw).
Simone already has an edge in the competition, being best friends and all with reigning Dancing With the Stars champion Laurie Hernandez, who’s been giving her advice!

Simone Biles and Sasha Farber are just about the cutest team on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars…and they’re going to be so much fun to watch!
Since Simone is BFFs with the reigning champion Laurie Hernandez, she got some pretty great advice when it comes to what she’s in for.
“[She] said to take care of the blisters and if your feet hurt to tell Sasha, because if you don’t take your shoes off, they will hurt the next day,” Simone shared in a new interview — but she didn’t tell him! Eek!
“I didn’t tell Sasha, and my feet are burning today,” she admitted.
Another piece of advice Laurie gave to Simone was to “have fun with it and to let my personality shine and that she’ll always be a text away.”
Dancing With the Stars premieres on Monday, March 20th on ABC.
Simone Biles just made a shocking confession — Sasha Farber is the first guy she’s ever danced with!
The Olympic gymnast revealed this little tidbit just after being revealed as one of the new cast members on Dancing With The Stars.
“I think just generally dancing in heels and dancing with a partner because I’ve never experienced that before,’ Simone shared about what she was most nervous about. “[Sasha Farber] is the first guy I’ve danced with.”
But she shouldn’t be worried at all. We mean, he just placed 5th with Terra Jole in season 23.
And, remember how he stepped in for Derek Hough to dance with Nastia Liukin in season 20? He was amazing!
“It’s going good,” she added of their partnership so far. “I think our personalities go well with each other and he’s very patient so I like that.”
