Louie Vito Says He’s “Improving Everyday” for Dancing with the Stars

Louie Vito has been a busy man.  Not only is he gearing up with the U.S. Snowboard Team for the upcoming Winter Games, but he is also honing his dance skills for the upcoming “Dancing with the Stars” show with his partner Chelsie Hightower.   Hightower has been traveling with him to his snowboarding commitments so they can keep up their practice routine.  In his most recent blog on PEOPLE.com, Vito says that every day he feels that he is “progressing and getting better.”  

However, he also says that dancing has provided him with many frustrating moments.  He says that something as easy as “shoulders down and head up” shouldn’t be so difficult, but it’s been hard for him to do.  He also says that he is nervous for the first show, but is excited to get it going.  It’s definitely crunch time for the dancing duo, as the “Dancing with the Stars” premieres this coming Monday on ABC.
