Dancing With the Stars Pro Dancers
During a live performance in March 2023, Mark Ballas, who danced with Charli D’Amelio, the season’s winner, announced that he would be leaving the competition. “I’ll just end by saying that this is the last time you’ll see me dance in this capacity. My most recent post is this one. People reported that he said, “This is going to be my last dance.”
Witney Carson McAllister, the winner of Season 19 who danced with previous contestant turned presenter Alfonso Ribeiro, revealed her decision to retire from competitive dancing in a TikTok video. She stated that she is not ready to continue the tough schedule of the show and that she would prefer to raise her two young sons and spend time with her family.
Professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy and his wife Jenna Johnson have welcomed a baby boy. They will return for the competition in season 32, he stated to Us Weekly. Jenna, who made history as the first same-sex contestant when she and JoJo Siwa competed in season 30, did not take part in the season 31 competition since she was expecting her son Rome at the time.
