'DWTS' Champ Nyle DiMarco is Teaching Chippendales Guys New Moves

EXCLUSIVE

"Dancing With the Stars" champ Nyle DiMarco is the newest member of the Las Vegas Chippendales squad, but he's already got the veteran dancers learning new moves ... with their hands.

DiMarco's got a 3 and a half week gig with the bare-chested studs, where he'll be the first deaf Chippendales dancer ever. Pretty cool!

Even cooler ... the vet Chippendales dancers are all learning sign language, which will be incorporated into the show.

Nyle had his first costume fitting Monday with dancers Mikey Perez and James Davis, and while it involved more taking off than putting on, Mikey and James seem to have a hold on the new form of communication.
