Recovered Maks Chmerkovskiy to Return to DWTS' Dance Floor Next Week!

ET reports the good news that DANCING WITH THE STARS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy will return to the dance floor next week after being sidelined with a calf injury for the past four weeks. Since his absence, his partner, GLEE alum Heather Morris has been partnered with DWTS troupe member Alan Bersten.

Although Chemerkovskiy has been unable to dance, he has continued to be involved in his partner's progress, attending rehearsals and choreographing many of their numbers, including last night's spectacular Disney Night jazz routine set to FROZEN's "For The First Time In Forever." (check out the performance below!)

On last night's live broadcast, Chmerkovskiy joined Morris and Bernsten for the post-performance interview with DWTS co-host erin Andrews. Gushed the dancer,
"I thought that Heather did an amazing performance, I was looking forward to this [dance] the whole weekend and [Bersten] didn't let me down."

In addition, Chmerkovskiy shared the good news that he is finally able to re-join his partner for next week's round of competition, telling Andrews, "Alan's officially fired. I'm taking over as of tonight."
