Hayley Erbert is rejoining husband Derek Hough on tour after 'traumatic' craniectomy

"I'm just really excited to get out there and do what I love."

Hayley Erbert is returning to the dance floor four months after her emergency craniectomy.

The pro dancer, 29, announced Friday that she will be rejoining husband Derek Hough on their Symphony of Dance tour, set to resume April 14 in Melbourne, Fla. "I am just so excited to get back out and dance again after having something so traumatic happen," Erbert told PEOPLE.

"Dance has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and so I'm just really excited to get out there and do what I love and also to see the people that have supported me throughout this entire healing journey," she added.

While Hough is "grateful" for Erbert's swift recovery, he noted that they remain mindful about not rushing anything. "We've had extensive conversations and tests and results from different doctors," Hough said. "Every kind of doctor that you can think about from our original surgeon who did the surgeries to new people in our lives and they are very supportive."

"She's all clear and we're all just amazed by her and can't wait to go out there and put on a great show," he added.

Erbert was rushed to the hospital in December 2023 after the couple's tour performance in Washington D.C., where she was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel after she had become disoriented. Erbert underwent a successful cranioplasty surgery to replace a portion of her skull and has been on the mend since.

She shared a health update in February and said she has a "new outlook on life." "To this day, I still have really good days and I have really bad days — emotionally and physically sometimes — but I'm doing so much better every single day," Erbert said. "Truly there is so much progress every day, and I'm so grateful for that."

Hough, who postponed tour dates in the wake of his wife's surgery, also announced the rescheduled dates in February, though it was unclear at the time if Erbert was set to rejoin him.
