Gleb Savchenko was born in Moscow in 1983. He started dancing when he was only seven years old, and over the next twenty-two years he won major international titles in Latin ballroom, as both an amateur and a professional.
First appearing on Dancing with the Stars in season 16, he danced with celebrity partner Lisa Vanderpump. This past season he was partnered with Shangela, making history as the first pro to be partnered with a drag queen. Then in the finale he made history AGAIN, as the first pro to BECOME a drag queen!
Gleb is the only DWTS pro to appear on ALL the major international versions of Dancing with the Stars: U.S., UK, Australia, and Russia. He’s also appeared on the UK shows Celebrity MasterChef and Celebs on the Farm, where he learned how to give an alpaca a manicure 💅🏼
Gleb is absolutely thrilled to be joining the Life’s A Dance family and 2023 cast!!! It is definitely safe to say we are too!!! 🤩🤩
