Hayley Erbert is from the Southwest

Hayley was born and raised in Texas. He has one brother, Collin Erbert, which is several years older. She’s yelled at it a few times on her Instagram, as with the throwback photo below of them looking adorable together as kids. It is unknown what Collin does professionally, but he graduated from college in 2015. It can be said that he chooses a life away from the spotlight just by looking at his Instagram page. That doesn’t mean he’s never met the stars. In 2016, he posted a photo with Julianne Hough the night he starred in Fox’s fat life! He jokes that he set the picture as his phone background.

Hayley Erbert is a former pageant queen

Hayley rose to fame as a finalist in season 10 So you think you can dance, who skyrocketed her career as a professional dancer. However, Hayley also has a passion for pageantry. She was the first runner-up in the 2013 Miss Kansas Teen USA pageant. However, if you look through her Instagram page, one wouldn’t know. Her oldest Instagram photos, since 2012, center around her dancing endeavors and her daily life with her friends. No photos of him smiling on stage during the contest can be found. The only photo where she wears the crown is a snapshot from her 22nd birthday, which she titled with the very famous words of Taylor Swift“I don’t know about you but I feel 22.”

Hayley Erbert is so athletic

If being a famous dancer isn’t enough, Hayley has proven how athletic she can be from the dance floor time and time again. He has shared several photos of himself taking part in water sports over the years, such as surfing and surfing. He’s trying to surf in 2021, and although the video he posted of himself in the water doesn’t show him standing on the board, he seems to be able to pull it off in no time. Plus, his wake surf shot in 2017 (see here) made it seem like anyone could do it.

Nature is Hayley Ebert’s Muse

If her seemingly seamless participation in water sports doesn’t show that Hayley has a deep connection with nature, a myriad of posts will be peppered all over her Instagram. Hayley posted a carousel of photos to her Instagram page on Earth Day in 2022 and captioned it, “How lucky are we that we can call this place home?! Happy Earth Day!” Some of the photos she shares include selfies with gorillas, swimming with dolphins, enjoying waterfalls, walking on sand dunes and watching the sunset. In 2021, Hayley posted a photo of herself on a safari in Kenya together Derek, smiles in Joshua Tree National Park, and scuba diving in Hawaii.He’s also never been shy about his love for animals, which he’s been posting since 2012. It’s clear Hayley can dance through nature over and over again!

Hayley is a dog and cat mother

Hayley doesn’t have children of her own, but she has lots of pets! He and Derek are proud to have two dogs and two cats. The dogs are named Luna and Romie, while the cats are named Palo and Lily. The pro dancer shared a photo in October 2020 of the cats playing while Romie begged to be cuddled and Luna watching the cats, and she said it concluded her life was “pretty good” and that she wouldn’t “change it for the world.”
