Mark Ballas Is Retiring From ‘Dancing With the Stars’

After an impressive run on the dance competition show, Ballas is hanging up his ballroom shoes — at least when it comes to “Dancing With the Stars.”

Months after his season 31 Mirrorball Trophy win with partner Charli D’Amelio, Ballas’ retirement was confirmed by E! News. The outlet reports that Ballas made the announcement during a DWTS Live tour show in Las Vegas in March 2023.

“I’ve done 20 seasons now. I started this journey when I was 21, 22 and honestly being able to dance and perform for you fans—you guys are the best fans,” he told the crowd.

“My mom is here tonight, my dad is here tonight, my wife is here tonight, my wife’s mom and dad are here tonight. I just want to finish this by saying that this will be the last time you see me dance in this capacity. I’m coming to a close tonight. This is going to be my last dance,” he added.

After his performance, Ballas took a minute to thank his fans.

“Thank you guys for a lifetime of memories. I appreciate it. I’m not saying this is the end. This is just the last time I’ll be dancing with a partner,” he said.

Ballas has won three Mirrorballs over the course of his career on “Dancing With the Stars.” He won season 6 with Kristi Yamaguchi, with Shawn Johnson in season 8, and with D’Amelio in season 31.
