meryl davis charlie white ice dancing with the stars gi Olympics ice dancing champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White: 'Dancing with the Stars' next?

Meryl Davis and Charlie White are ready to keep dancing after their gold medal-winning ice dancing routines at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Could they be heading to “Dancing with the Stars” next?

Davis and White already have a “DWTS” connection: Pro dancer Derek Hough helped choreograph their Olympic short routine. When Us Weekly asks about the connection and if the athletes would like to continue to work with Hough on “Dancing with the Stars,” White responds, “Why not?” Davis continues that theme, saying, “I mean, if we were invited … we would love to do it!”

When it comes to partners, both ice dancers want to stick with Hough. That would be Derek Hough for Davis. As for White, “Is it too late to get his sister back on the show?”

Olympians have competed and excelled on “Dancing with the Stars” before — Kristi Yamaguchi, Apolo Anton Ohno and Shawn Johnson have all won Mirror Ball trophies — so this isn’t impossible. There is one possible issue, however.

Ice dancing is essentially ballroom dancing on skates, meaning that Davis and White would be — yet again — nearly impossible to beat. But since they can’t partner with each other, maybe that would be a fun competition to watch.
