Alan Bersten (born May 26, 1994)[1] is an American professional dancer and choreographer, specializing in ballroom dancing.

Bersten was a finalist and made it to the top 6 on the tenth season of the FOX television series So You Think You Can Dance. He is currently appearing and best known for his appearances as a professional dancer on the ABC dance competition television series Dancing With The Stars. Bersten also currently appears as a professional mentor on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, a spin-off of the Dancing with the Stars series and is the winning mentor of the first season of the series for his work with Sky Brown and J.T. Church.[2]

Personal life

Bersten was born and raised in Minnesota as the youngest of three. His family is originally from Russia. He started dancing at the age of 7 dancing various styles. His brother, Gene, taught him how to dance. His diverse style led him to win several titles.[3]

Bersten graduated from Hopkins High School, and then attended the University of Minnesota.

In 2018, Bersten was on tour with Dancing With The Stars, when he began to have severe stomach pain. It went away after a minute, but he decided to go to the hospital. In the hospital, they took a blood test, which told him that he had a high amount of calcium in his blood, and his mother wanted him to take another blood test. This time it showed he had the symptoms of a tumor on one of his parathyroid gland called hyperparathyroidism. He got surgery the next day to remove his left parathyroid. After a week Bersten was back at work.[4]

Dancing With The Stars

Performances

Bersten started in season 20 as a member of the troupe for four consecutive seasons until he made his debut as a professional partner in season 25. In addition to dancing in the troupe, Bersten filled in as a professional dance partner to the celebrities. During the second week of season 22, Bersten danced a salsa with Paige VanZant, as VanZant's regular partner, Mark Ballas, suffered a back injury during rehearsals; Bersten learned the entire dance routine on a one day's notice and performed the dance for the live-show the following day.[5] In season 24, Bersten danced with Heather Morris for four weeks due to Morris's regular partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy's injury.

Bersten was promoted to a professional partner in season 25, in which he partnered up with 1980s singer-songwriter and Broadway actress Debbie Gibson. The couple was eliminated in the second week, placing 12th. Bersten came back in week 3 to dance with Vanessa Lachey while her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, dealt with personal issues. Bersten, alongside fellow Dancing with the Stars professional Sharna Burgess appeared on the cover of the season twenty-five promotional poster.[6]

Bersten returned as a professional in season 26, in which he was paired with Olympic figure skater Mirai Nagasu. The couple was eliminated in the third week of competition tying for 4th place with Chris Mazdzer with partner Witney Carson and Jennie Finch Daigle with partner Keo Motsepe.

For season 27, Bersten partnered up with model and social media personality Alexis Ren. [7] The couple reached the finals and placed fourth.[8]

For season 28, Bersten is paired with The Bachelorette star Hannah Brown.
