The former Bachelorette, 36, will be part of the Dancing with the Stars 2022 winter tour, the series announced Tuesday. The news comes one year after Bristowe took home the Mirrorball Trophy alongside pro partner Artem Chigvintsev during season 29 of DWTS.

"All of the dancers told me what an incredible experience the tour is," she said in a press release. "I was so sad that there was no tour last season [due to Covid] so I am very excited that I'll finally get to perform in front of an audience and connect with the fans!"

Bristowe continued, "Being on Dancing with the Stars let me live out my childhood dream by being able to dance on such a big platform and I am beyond grateful for all of it."

"After not being able to tour last year, we're all so excited to bring the 'Dancing with the Stars - Live Tour' back to all of our dedicated fans around the country," Bersten said in the release. "I'm especially looking forward to this year's tour because we also get to celebrate our show's amazing 30th Season."

In addition to her dancing commitments, the reality star has been busy lately hosting the past two seasons of The Bachelorette with fellow alum Tayshia Adams and planning her wedding with fiancé Jason Tartrick.

Recently, Tartick, 33, told PEOPLE the couple's nuptials will be inspired by The Great Gatsby.

"Wedding planning, it's going awesome. We have an idea of our target date but it's not locked in yet," he said. "We have an idea of where we want to do it, we know when we want to do [it], and now details and lists are home together and the foundation is being built for the wedding."
