Mark Ballas, who danced with Charli D’Amelio, the champion of the previous season, declared at a live performance in March 2023 that he would be resigning from the show. “Let me simply conclude by noting that this is the final time you will witness me dancing in this role. This is my last post for now. According to People, he declared, “This is going to be my last dance.”

Dancing With the Stars Pro Dancers

In a TikTok video, Season 19 champion Witney Carson McAllister—who danced with former contestant turned host Alfonso Ribeiro—announced that she will not be hitting the dance floor again. She expressed her desire to raise her two young sons and spend time with her family, stating that she is not prepared to resume the demanding schedule of the show.

Val Chmerkovskiy, a professional dancer, and his wife Jenna Johnson recently had a newborn boy. He revealed to Us Weekly that they will return for the competition in season 32. Because she was expecting her son Rome at the time, Jenna—who made history as the first same-sex competitor when she and JoJo Siwa participated in season 30—did not participate in the season 31 competition.
