Dancing with the Stars Live recently kicked off, bringing the best of the ballroom to cities around the U.S. in the weeks ahead.
Starring on the tour on select dates until Feb. 4 is newly crowned season 32 champ Xochitl Gomez, who at 17, became one of the show's youngest-ever winners last year. She's joined by her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, along with a host of famous faces from the ABC reality competition series.
As she hits the road, she's taking PEOPLE along for the ride, sharing some behind-the-scenes photos of her first days on tour with Val. See what she's been up to (in her own words) and follow along on her Instagram @_xochitl.gomez, where she'll be sharing daily vlogs.
