'Dancing with Stars' Winner Kaitlyn Bristowe Revives Her Ballroom Moves with Jason Tartick
She won the Mirrorball Trophy for a reason! Kaitlyn Bristowe took to Instagram on Thursday to break out her best moves from her time on “Dancing with the Stars” — but this time with her boyfriend, Jason Tartick.
The Season 11 Bachelorette shared a cute video that sees her and Jason performing impressive partner work set to the tune of Dua Lipa’s hit single “Levitating.”
“Artem 2.0 in the flesh.” Kaitlyn captioned the post, referencing her “DWTS” teammate and ballroom pro Artem Chigvintsev. (The pair were named the winners of Season 29 of the dancing competition series in November 2020.)
It wasn’t long before Jason responded to Kaitlyn’s post in the comments section, joking that he was bamboozled into making the clip. “’Jay, come downstairs...let’s send a dance video to my mom’....20 mins later scrolling and see it on feed,” the “Bachelorette” Season 14 alum wrote.
Notable “DWTS” figures also chimed in, expressing praise for Kaitlyn and Jason’s skills. “Not bad guys,” commented dancer Peta Murgatroyd, while judge Carrie Ann Inaba added, “Hallway dancing... only the best can do this.”

Indeed, Kaitlyn and Jason — who have been dating since January 2019 — executed their brief dance number in the hallway of their hotel suite in New Mexico, where Katie Thurston’s Season 17 of “The Bachelorette” is currently in production.
As ABC and Warner Bros. announced on Friday, Kaitlyn and fellow former Bachelorette Tayshia Adams “will support [Katie] through next season,” as host Chris Harrison is still on hiatus from the franchise following his controversial “Extra” interview with Rachel Lindsay in February.
“I am so freaking excited to be with Kaitlyn Bristowe here in New Mexico because we’re actually going to be helping as mentors and supporters — like the ultimate girl gang and girl power — for Katie, the Bachelorette,” Tayshia said during this week’s episode of her podcast, “Click Bait with Bachelor Nation.”
“Katie’s going to be on this journey and we’re going to be there by her side whenever she needs us, essentially,” the Season 16 Bachelorette elaborated. “Honestly, we’re just here to help her out. We’re just mentors, if you will. This journey’s hard and when you have girls, it makes it a lot easier — girls that understand what you’re going through.”
