Val Chmerkovskiy is a very busy man these days. In addition to rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars, he attended the high school graduation of a former dance partner--Zendaya--and made a visit to Children’s Hospital LA just a couple of days prior with current dance partner--and mirror ball contender--Rumer Willis.

Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy competed together during season 16 of Dancing With the Stars. The duo made it to the finals, placing as runners up.

Val noted in a photo he shared of himself with Zendaya that the Disney actress appeared at the Met Gala shortly before her high school graduation--pulling both events off with style.

"...from the Met straight to set to graduating high school. Proud of my lil Zendayachka. #driven #fam @zendaya," Val Chmerkovskiy captioned the shot, as he wore Zendaya's graduation cap.

Rumer Willis and Val Chemerkovskiy were joined by DWTS friends Noah Galloway, Sharna Burgess, Riker Lynch and Allison Holker for their visit to the Children's Hospital.

“a blessing is only realized when it’s passed forward. the families, the nurses, and everyone that works so hard everyday to put smiles on the faces of these incredible children. puts things in perspective. #blessed,” Val captioned a photo taken at the hospital.

Val Chmerkovskiy must be quite a guy. To attend the high school graduation of a former DWTS contender and to visit sick children at the hospital with Rumer Willis and some more of his Dancing With the Stars friends--all while preparing to compete for the mirror ball trophy--is quite a testament to this pro dancer's character.

Do you think Val Chmerkovskiy and Rumer Willis will win this season of Dancing With the Stars?

Val Chmerkovskiy is quite clearly a winner already--in so many obvious ways.
