Allison Holker is dancing again.

And thank you @bperryrussell for making it so fun and making me feel safe,” Holker captioned an Instagram post on August 26, 2023.

Allison Holker Previously Said That She Hadn’t Danced Since Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ Death
Prior to her husband’s death, Holker and tWitch would frequently share choreographed dance videos on social media. Dance was one of the many ways they bonded and they really loved dancing together.
In an interview following tWitch’s death, Holker shared that she wasn’t quite ready to get back into it.
“Dancing with him was so special,” she told People magazine. “I haven’t danced yet. That’s gonna be a big step for me, but I know that I’ll get there. He’s guiding me on this path,” she added.
Elsewhere in the interview, Holker actually compared her relationship with tWitch to a “choreographed dance.”
“Our love was so real and so loud. We always told people our house was like a choreographed dance,” she told the outlet.
Holker appeared on four seasons of “Dancing With the Stars,” but hasn’t been a part of the show since 2016. Many fans would love to see her back in the ballroom, especially after everything she has been through, but there’s been no inkling that she’ll return for season 32.
