Ariana Madix looked ready to hit the dance floor to perfect her pas de deux with her pro dancer partner Pasha Pashkov as she headed into the Dancing With the Stars dance studio this week.
The Vanderpump Rules star, 38, wore a cropped red tank top and matching leggings which showcased her honed frame.
A black hoodie was tied around her slim waist and she carried a container of water and a white drawstring bag that presumably held her dance shoes.
Pashkov followed behind her in black pants and a white tank top. He had a duffel bag slung over one shoulder and a grey jacket lying on top of that.
The Mirror Ball trophy hopefuls embraced in a hug before they got down to the work of dance practice.

The actress is competing on season 32 of the popular ABC dance competition.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said she hopes her VPR castmates will come out and support her.
‘I’m looking forward to seeing my girls come and support,’ she told the outlet.
She’s excited to get going, telling ET that she’s always dreamed of being on DWTS.
‘I just kind of wanted to see if I could do it. Really watching the show for years, I’m such a fan of the performances. You watch and you’re like, “Oh, I want to do that,”‘ she said.
‘I’m a hard worker, so I love being able to put that hard work into dance, into my book, the sandwich shop, all of those things and it gives me a sense of accomplishment and self-worth that is kind of unparalleled. I’m really excited to be in this space in my life.’
And the co-owner of sandwich shop Something About Her hopes she makes it to Disney Week so that her friends kids can come watch her dance.
‘I really hope I can make it to Disney Week, because I really want Summer and Ocean to be able to come watch and see all the Disney dancers,’ she said of Scheana Shay and Lala Kent’s kids.
And Ariana also admitted that she hopes she can get Summer’s input when it comes time to choose which Disney song she will dance to.
‘I would love to see what Summer thinks. I know she’s a big Moana fan [and] a big Frozen fan,’ she explained. ‘I just want to make her proud.’
‘She’s my little bestie, because she’s my bestie’s baby. She is so cute,’ she gushed.

One Vanderpump Rules cast member that will definitely be turning into DWTS is Madix’s ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval, 40.
The former couple dated for nine years before his affair with Rachel Leviss, 29, brought their relationship to and end.
‘I’ll be doing both, voting and watching. I’m really excited for her,’ he told ET. ‘
I know she has been wanting to do this show for years. I think she’s going to do great. She’s a really hard worker. I think she’ll go far, hopefully.’
