Fame isn’t cheap, and Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon is finding that out.

One of the American heroes of the 2018 Winter Olympics, Rippon is now balancing his appearance on ABC’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ with his skating on the Stars On Ice tour.

It isn’t simple. DWTS tapes in Los Angeles every week, yet Rippon is traveling with Stars On Ice in late April and early May to places like Detroit, Grand Rapids and St. Paul.

Dancing With The Stars starts on Monday, April 30. That’s the day after Rippon will be performing in Chicago at the AllState Arena, and just a few days before his appearance on the ice in Grand Rapids, Mich.

As long as he can remain on DWTS — and with his moves on the ice we’re expecting a strong translation to the dance floor — he’ll be juggling various commitments throughout the month of May.

In addition to finding him on Dancing With The Stars, you can watch Rippon skate his heart out at various locations across the United States throughout April and May. So check out the Stars On Ice schedule and find a spot where you can watch this magical athlete entertain an entire arena all over again.
