Lindsay continues to be a headliner on the Dancing With The Stars Tour in the off season and is often one of the show’s MCs, keeping audiences around the country entertained by her warmth, humor, humility and extraordinary dancing.

Born and raised in Provo, Utah, Lindsay began dancing at the age of 4, when her mom began searching for a hobby that she enjoyed. After her first ballet and jazz dance classes, she was hooked and has been dancing ever since. By the age of 8, Lindsay found herself a ballroom partner and began entering competitions. With three younger sisters following in her footsteps and dance dominating the Arnold household, Lindsay’s mom decided to create an environment where all of her daughters could enjoy their passion and train together. She opened the Vibe Dance Studio in London, UT, where Lindsay trained under head director Rick Robinson and with some of the best teachers in the nation, in a variety of mediums including ballet, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, Latin and ballroom. Most of her training, however, was with her main ballroom coach and world-renowned ballroom dancer, Shirley Ballas, who is also the mother of Dancing with the Stars veteran Mark Ballas.

Lindsay’s dedication to her craft has earned her countless awards over the years including first place in both the United States Open Youth Latin Championships and the United States Open Junior Latin Championships, top three finalist in the World Junior Latin Team Match, top five finalist at the World Cup Latin Junior Championships, and top five finalist at the United States Junior National 10 Dance Championships.
