Artem Chigvintsev is known as a professional dancer. He is most famous for competing on the dance contest program, Dancing with the Stars. He has also been getting attention for dating one of his dancing partners and professional female wrestler, Nikki Bella.
Artem Chigvintsev was born on June 12, 1982 in the country of Russia. He acquired his affection for dancing from his mom, taking dance classes since early on in his life. Chigvintsev was raised in the military town of Izhevsk in the former Soviet Union, where he frequently skied cross-country to class over the brutal Russian landscape.
At the age of 13, Chigvintsev found his serious passion for dancing and realized that he needed to practice every day to become a professional.
Artem touched base in Los Angeles in 2004 and started his dance career as a candidate on the main series of 'So You Think You Can Dance'. He also had different acting and dance roles, appearing in 'The O.C.', the 80th Oscars Ceremony, and stage plays.
Chigvintsev sharpened his art until he earned a spot in 2010 as an expert dancer on the U.K. edition of Strictly Come Dancing, which he won with big name partner Kara Tointon. After four effective seasons on the show, he seized an idea from the producers of Dancing with the Stars to come to Los Angeles in 2014 and start his new adventure in the U.S. He has been matched with a series of buzzworthy partners on Dancing With The Stars, including famous actress Lea Thompson, singer Patti LaBelle, celebrity Mischa Barton of The O.C., and his current girlfriend, female pro wrestler Nikki Bella.
Nikki Bella, the 35-year-old WWE star started dating her Dancing With The Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev in 2019. The pair were spotted kissing during a get-together in Los Angeles. The Total Bellas star and her new playmate were feasting at a prevalent Los Angeles lunch spot when she was spotted hanging over the table for a kiss from her new man.
Nikki paraded her body in a couple of tight dark velvet pants and a trimmed dark sweatshirt. She has been looking fit ever since her split from mega WWE star, John Cena. During their date, the pair sat in the open air and feasted on serving of mixed greens as they let the public see that they were now being public about their new love.
