This morning, the professional dancers who are competing this season on Dancing With the Stars were revealed on Good Morning America. Here they are:
Some of our favorite pro dancers will not be returning to Dancing With The Stars for season 20 – Cheryl Burke, and now sadly, Karina Smirnoff. While many of us thought we’d see our beloved Karina Smirnoff return this season, She recently posted on Facebook some sad news:
Many of you have been asking if I will be back for season 20 of DWTS and I wanted all of my incredible family to hear it directly from me. After a lot of thought and prayer, I’ve decided to focus my energies on some other exciting endeavors including adding author to my resume. I have absolutely loved dancing for all of you for all these years and feel blessed to have been given a platform to put my passion for dance, choreography and creativity on display. DWTS has been a huge part of my life for the last 10 years and I will always have a special place in my heart for it. I am thrilled that now you will be seeing more of me in new arenas in the days and weeks to come. My first book We’re Just Not That Into You – Dating Disasters From the Trenches was released today and I look forward to hearing from you as you read it! I love all of you so very much and couldn’t feel more grateful for your support in all that I do!
This will also be Len Goodman’s last season as host. And, a new aspect of the show will be that the contestants’ rehearsals will be live streaming so you can watch every move.
